Professional JavaScript: AntiPatterns

Like in physics, antipatterns are similar to patterns, but have an opposite charge - and encounters between them lead to the annihilation of both.

Quantum computing aside, improperly architected applications may work, may perform well, and may meet the acceptance criteria, but the ability to maintain them degrades over time. This presentation will show some of the common mistakes made when building large web applications, how to be aware of them, correct them, and hopefully prevent them. A special focus will be made on how modules relate to each other and how to wire them with the correct mechanism so that the result is readable and maintainable.

      This looks like it would have been a lot of fun to watch; I'm sorry I missed it. (I only realized at 9pm that it was Tuesday.)

    This was my 1st Club Ajax meetup. Loved the format. Learned lots (or in this case, what not to do) and networked.
