JavaScript – The Good Parts

This is a Google Tech Talk which everyone who’s using Javascript should watch. In this video Douglas Crockford explains the good and bad sides to Javascript and highlights very good tips for Javascript development.

The best nature of JavaScript was so effectively hidden that for many years the prevailing opinion of JavaScript was that it was an unsightly, incompetent abomination. This session will expose the goodness in JavaScript, an outstanding dynamic programming language. Within the language is an elegant subset that is vastly superior to the language as a whole, being more reliable, readable and maintainable.
