While looked down upon by "hardcore" programming language enthusiasts, JavaScript is a surprisingly flexible (not to mention ubiquitous) language with functional and prototypal characteristics. We'll go through basic syntax, features and limitations, but primarily focus on common patterns as they're used in web development.

If there's time, bonus topics include covering current trends like promises and data binding, and the new toys coming in ES6 (the upcoming version of the language).
