VanJS: Chrome Dev Tools and Waterbear

Another awesome VanJS is almost here. This month we have Boris Smus coming up from Google to talk about the Chrome developer tools, and Dethe Elza will be giving a talk on Waterbear.

The Chrome Developer Tools: Boris Smus is a member of the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google. He's going to dig in to some of the incredible stuff you can do with the Chrome dev tools, especially some of the new features in the bleeding edge versions of Chrome. He's also going to talk about extending the dev tools. Even if you think you already know the Chrome dev tools, prepare to be impressed.

Visual programming with Waterbear: Dethe Elza is the lead developer of Waterbear, a visual programming metaphor environment written with JavaScript. Inspired by Scratch, its goal is to make it easy for kids and adults alike to program for the web. Dethe was a Track A speaker at JSConf 2011, and has new developments to show us based on feedback from that talk.

    I was primarily interested in the Chrome Dev Tools and was expecting a more in depth coverage of the tool. Having said that, I did learned some new features of the tool.
