The second edition of the Open Web Podcast is now live. In this episode we brought on Brendan Eich and Arun Ranganathan (both of Mozilla) to discuss the recent changes that occurred in the ECMAScript 3.1/ECMAScript 4 processes that resulted in ECMAScript Harmony. This is a dense podcast – going just over an hour.
Next week we’re hoping to bring on some people from the Microsoft JScript team to discuss the recent changes and how they plan on implementing them in Internet Explorer. The topic isn’t clear for the week after that, but we’ll probably want to get back to discussing HTML 5 of the new Open Web Foundation.
Also, we now have a dedicated site for the podcast: openwebpodcast.com.
I plan on having representatives from Dojo, Yahoo UI, and Prototype on the panel (will probably switch up the speakers from last year, just to keep things interesting).
Work continues on my upcoming book (about halfway done at this point – working on Chapter 10). But in the meantime some article extracts have been released on Ajaxian:
Enjoy! Note that these are only extracts of the larger chapters: Closures and Function Prototypes.
