Ken’s Top 5 JavaScript Sessions at EclipseCon 2014

If you’re interested in JavaScript and/or Node.js development this years EclipseCon North America has some great sessions in store for you! It starts off with a Tutorial Monday with the Orion team titled END TO END WEBAPP DEVELOPMENT WITH ORION. We’re going to run through building an application from scratch leveraging Bootstrap and TableTop.js.

You can click on this link for the JavaScript sessions at EclipseCon but if I have to pick a top 5 I’ll go with:

NEXT-GENERATION JAVASCRIPT LANGUAGE TOOLING by Ariya Hidayat
Ariya is well respected in the JavaScript community for his libraries like Esprima and his conference presentations on performance and optimization.

JAVASCRIPT: DON’T BELIEVE THE TYPE! with Manu Sridharan and Simon Kaegi
Manu has worked on language tooling in IBM Research and is now at Samsung carrying on his passion. Simon has been digging deep into core JavaScript design and development for many years (has the scars to prove it).

NODE.JS ON POWERPC – A STORY ABOUT PORTING NODE.JS & V8 by Andrew Low
Andrew is a veteran in the Virtual Machinist space. He lead the IBM J9 Virtual Machine team for many years and is applying that knowledge to porting V8 to IBM Hardware.

WIRING THE INTERNET OF THINGS WITH NODE-RED by David Conway-Jones
If you know nothing about NodeRED you should definitely
attend this session. Imagine wiring the Internet-of-Things with… well visual wiring. A visually compelling palette of connections and ease of use make NodeRED an amazing tool (also, the JS editor is incredible)

MODULAR JAVASCRIPT by Andrew Eisenberg
Andrew is well known in the Eclipse community and has contributed to Orion as part of his work at VMWare. His talk about module loading with respect to large applications in JavaScript should be a great talk!

Ok, kind of a 6th… While not a talk, IBM is hosting a WEB IDE BOF on Weds night with refreshments. Come demo what you’ve been working on or chat about what you like/dislike about the concept or current implementations of Web IDEs.

Hope to bump into you at EclipseCon and if you haven’t registered yet… there’s still 7 days!

    Ken! Of all the odd things to be searching for in the middle of the night.. I was trying to remember Roo’s last name for some reason and I just couldn’t think of it. Maddening, right? Somehow google led me to this post. Now I can finally get back to sleep.
