incompatibilities, and brittle spaghetti code? It doesn't have to be?
this way anymore! In this presentation, we'll be looking at the?
language itself, paying special attention to its most powerful and?
under-appreciated features: prototype-based inheritance, closures, and?
metaprogramming. We'll look briefly at what these features actually?
mean from a language standpoint, and then spend most of our time?
rolling up our sleeves and experimenting with code. Come prepared with?
If you like to play along, I recommend installing Java and Rhino?
Java, and makes an excellent sandbox to experiment interactively,?
write scripts, and play around with the excellent JVM integration.?
I'll be using it in the presentation to run code samples.?
