Javascript for Java Stoics, a Twitter series


Javascript for Java Stoics: Guess what. 10 years experience with Struts and JSP does not qualify you as a Web 2.0 tech lead! (true story)



Javascript for Java Stoics: Think recursion is overrated and convoluted? Try it in Javascript: it was designed for recursion!



Javascript for Java Stoics: Yes, the app must still work if users crank up the text size w/ Ctrl+/Cmd+ Bonus pts if it still looks good too!





Javascript for Java Stoics: YUI is no longer your security blanket. YUI 3 is more like jQuery. Bonus: AOP unified Dom/custom events. Nice!



I’m writing my @jsconf presentation. Topic? “Javascript is NOT for Java Stoics” -> a twist on my Twitter series w/ a moral for us ninjas!



Javascript for Java Stoics: me: “No, I wouldn’t expect a form’s fields to auto-repopulate if you set it’s innerHTML.” stoic: “But IE works!”



Javascript for Java Stoics: RT @dalmaer: If you come from Java it’s fun to point out that JavaScript has null & undefined! http://tr.im/j4Yx



Javascript for Java Stoics: RT @ptamaro:RT: Eric A. Meyer “Death to plugins, JavaScript will save us all” http://tinyurl.com/d5s5su



Inspiration for my most recent “Stoics” tweet: OH by a Java geek: “We need to get GWT in here so we can get rid of this dojo crap.”



Javascript for Java Stoics: GWT may assuage your Javascript-phobic ways, but your lust for control will eventually lead you to wisdom.



Javascript for Java Stoics: I see from your verbosity that you just love to type! But over the wire, less is more: faster, leaner, sexier!



My entire series on “Javascript for Java Stoics” is here: http://bit.ly/JD9F (hint: it’s not just for stubborn Java geeks)



Javascript for Java Stoics: Q: What’s worse than a noxious heap of IE hacks? A: Said heap breaks Safari, Chrome, Opera..//browser sniff FTL!



Javascript for Java Stoics: CSS will save your sorry a$$ after you tried to position all of your widgets using el.style.top=(50*i+32)+’px’;



FYI, my “Javascript for Java Stoics” tweets are fun, friendly tips aimed at all of us coders. Java nerds are just easy targets. //truce?



Javascript for Java Stoics: No, your Duff-Bubble-Mega sort routine will never beat Array.sort(). So give it up and start writing real code!



Javascript for Java Stoics: RT @kasthomas Making one line of code do the work of 47 – http://tinyurl.com/c52mwh (less coding ==> less bugs?)



Javascript for Java Stoics: Ha! We can place a var statement after its variables are referenced. But we don’t — just so you can stay sane.



Javascript for Java Stoics: Yah, making private object members in js is kinda wacky, but that’s just because we ‘scripters prefer to share!



Javascript for Java Stoics: Breaking News! The “comma” operator has been liberated from the “for” statement! (Code corruption ensues!) #java
