Secrets of JavaScript Libraries (SXSW)


Today, at SXSW, I hosted a panel discussion on the “Secrets of JavaScript Libraries.” We set out to discuss the behind-the-scenes nitty-gritty code that powers the universal features of the most popular JavaScript libraries.

I think the presentation went quite well. I think we could’ve, easily, done a 2 hour talk with all the content that we had (we had to chop off, at least, two sections at the end in order to take questions). Here are the slides:

Some of the slides will be a little bit tricky considering that they rely on someone talking about them – I’ll be sure to do an audio-to-slide synchronization once the presentation podcast is released.

I want to thank all the panelists for participating: Sam Stephenson, Alex Russell, Thomas Fuchs, and Andrew Dupont. Together it helped make for a stand-out panel. Here’s hoping that SXSW decides to do more technical panels next year – if this panel was any indicator developers are hungry for more code talks.
