Jason Orendorff / ES6 Generators and the Prisoner's Dilemma



This month, Jason Orendorff presents *ES6 Generators and the Prisoner's Dilemma*.


Generators are a crazy new language feature coming soon to browsers everywhere. They're hard to explain. In short they're useful for turning your inside-out code inside-in. (Because that's where the inside of your code should be. On the inside. It's too messy the other way.)


The Prisoner's Dilemma is a very simple game of cooperation, calculation, and betrayal for two players... or many.


This one the most ambitious things we've done for NashJS. If it all goes according to plan, you'll get a tutorial and hands-on experience with both topics.


You should show up for this one if:


• you know about generators and want to see how they'll work in JS

• or, you don't know anything about generators and you like learning new things

• you like a little friendly competition

• or, you think working together is better than competition

• you want to see something cool

• or, you want to see a couple of hackers debug their code under pressure


You'll need either Firefox or Chrome to participate.

    Definitely a very cool talk last night. Kudos to Jason. Side note: My company is looking for 1-2 more passionate Javascript/Coffeescript/Node (or Java) developers. Remote environment, exceptional company at the forefront of education software. Email [masked] for more info.

    Very cool, Jason turned psych/sociology into a coding challenge. Well played. Great vibe at Emma as well, my first encounter.

    Hi Guys and Gals! I am excited about the meeting, but two weeks is a little ways off for me. I wanted to throw this out there before the meeting. Does anyone have any AngularJS or node.js talent that is looking for a new job opportunity. I am really in need of someone that has an Architect and Design background in Javascript even if they do not have AngularJS or node.js experience. I would appreciate networking with you all and possibly getting referrals. I know that Nashville has the talent, I just have to do a little more searching :-)

    Thanks...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
