"JavaScript: The Bad Parts" by Dustin Rohde (

Dustin will tell us what JS can do but that you should probably use 3rd party libraries for because they're more efficient than native implementations and why that's just plain bananas!

"PureScript in 45 Minutes" by Adam Recvlohe (@arecvlohe)

In this talk Adam will talk about PureScript, a pure functional language strongly influenced by Haskell and written in JavaScript. You will learn the basics of PureScript and at the end build a small "Hello, world" project. This should be fun, right?
