ROUNDTABLE: How I learned to stop worrying and love Javascript

Many people hate on Javascript and many tools (CoffeeScript and the many Javascript frameworks) have been developed to mask its quirks. Lets meet up and take a moment to embrace whats wrong with Javascript and discuss how to deal with it.

This will be presented in a round table/discussion format. Information sharing is encouraged!

    Pretty interesting to be a part of an exclusive JS talk. I'm a WP freelancer, and I tend to stick to HTML, CSS, & PHP exclusively as much as possible....I leave JS to the plugin developer & tweak it when I HAVE TO. Looking to pick up some valuable insights :D

    I'm a web designer working on a JS-intensive project. Hoping to get some deeper perspective about javascript and connect with some local developer resources. I'm a fairly proficient actionscripter and am looking for ways to transition into javascripting.

    Everyone, this has been pushed a week back to the 31st due to the conflict with Battle Hack Miami hackathon, at the same time & location. We apologize for any inconvenience!

    Isn't this at the same time as the battlehack?

      It's a plot to distract teams.

    Im looking for a presenter still but would like to share lessons learned / best practices dealing with Javascript's quirky type system, operators, etc

    Very cool idea for a talk. What in particular will be discussed, you think? JS design patterns? Code libraries? Best practices? All have potential for being a super interesting idea.
