SSW TV was proud to sponsor this years’ DDD event in Brisbane.

This entertaining talk features Joshua Wulf, Legendary Recruiter at Just Digital People.

From the description:

JavaScript, like English, is the language of commerce and is spoken everywhere – usually badly.

Like English there is widespread debate about the best way to speak it – and if there even *is* a good way.

Like English, JavaScript is a mix of idioms and syntaxes borrowed or stolen from a number of sources.

And like English, JavaScript is THE LANGUAGE OF CHUCK NORRIS.

The ubiquitous nature of JavaScript means that like Chuck Norris and the Zagg Keyboard, THERE IS NO ESCAPE.

In this talk you’ll find out the 9 Secret Connections between Chuck Norris and JavaScript.

Read about the 7 Incredible Productivity Techniques that Chuck Norris Uses While Programming.

Marvel at the 5 Steps to Mastering Chuck Norris’ Functional Object-Oriented Procedural Programming in JavaScript.

Also: with ES6 and ES7, TypeScript and Facebook’s Flow all on the table, for the first time the world will find out: “WHICH JAVASCRIPT TYPE SYSTEM DOES CHUCK NORRIS USE?”

Take the Poll!

The bigger the beard, the more hardcore the coder
