Firefox-team January reading group: Effective JavaScript

27 December, 2012 § Leave a comment

Effective JSAbout a month ago Margaret Leibovic had the idea to start a Firefox team reading group.

The idea is that every month we choose one book (or a set of articles/essays) to read, then get together to discuss it (while eating and/or drinking).
Topics include programming, engineering, design, etc. Basically anything that makes us better software developers.

For the month of January we settled on Effective JavaScript, written by Mozilla’s very own Dave Herman.

We’re planning on discussing the book on Friday, 25 January at 12pm PST.

Discussion points:

  • Are there any points in the book that you strongly agree (or disagree) with?
  • Was there anything that surprised you?
  • Do you have any examples of times when you’ve used these strategies?
  • Do you have any examples of bugs you’ve seen because these strategies weren’t used?
  • What’s your new favorite JavaScript feature?

Anybody is welcome to join along and read the book with us. If someone wants to join the meeting discussion and doesn’t have access to our Vidyo video-conferencing software, send me a note and I’ll try my best to get you included in the discussion.
