JavaScript Talk at Northeastern

Yesterday I gave a presentation for the local ACM of Northeastern University. I covered the basics of JavaScript – targeted to a Computer Science major (in the case of the students at NU, they learn Scheme and Java so I emphasized the subject matter to that audience). I did a fast run-through of the whole language, covering the main points, and move on to a quick inspection of jQuery and the DOM – closing with some Q&A. The subject matter of JavaScript 2 (and 1.6-1.8) came up a couple times so discussion of that was interspersed throughout. There were a bunch of jQuery users in the audience and it was great to get to hear their feedback.

Also available in OGG Theora.

Here are the full slides, as well. I left in the slides where I typed out code, so that you can be able to reference it.
