What kinds of projects are you currently doing with javascript?

No answer yet

What types of projects do you want to hack on?

Fun ones! No, seriously, some JS stuff I've worked on in my spare time recently are a BZip2 library and "Slip", a JS library that compiles a small JS-like expression language to JS, but deals with object access asynchronously (eg. "a.b.c + 3" may actually involve several asynchronous requests to walk down the path "a.b.c", though this is hidden).

How do you feel about testing in JavaScript?

Great. Though, truthfully, I don't do it as much as I should.

What is your favourite JavaScript framework?

jQuery and Underscore make me mostly happy.

Introduction

I'm a web developer at SickKids, making web apps for biologists and bioinformaticians. Mostly program in Javascript, Scala and Groovy right now.
