Steve Yegge ranted about the Next Big Language in 2007. Despite Ruby’s fade and javascript and Node, it still doesn’t feel like we’re any closer. Perhaps NBL is just a rant, developers need a total echo system, just like Windows once was. Checkout Google Cloud Endpoints and see if you concur—it’s the system stupid?

Working with JavaScript at Application-Scale

TypeScript vs Dart?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dart_%28programming_language%29

In recent years, web applications have seen a sharp growth in complexity.  JavaScript, once a toy, is now being stretched to create applications on both the client and server in ways it was not originally engineered for.  This talk will introduce TypeScript, a way of enabling JavaScript to work better in large teams for building application-scale software.  We’ll also talk about some techniques that teams using TypeScript have used to build large applications quickly and more safely.

Presenter

Jonathan Turner recently finished his MS in Electrical Engineering from University of Colorado at Boulder, focused on programming languages and compilers.  He has contributed to a number of open source language projects including the Chapel programming language, Clang/LLVM, and now TypeScript.  He recently joined Microsoft to work as a Program Manager with the TypeScript team.

c/o Deconstructing Y! Axis Front End
Mojito is a sweet (and minty!) MVC application framework built on YUI 3 that enables agile development of Web applications. Mojito allows developers to write client and server components in the same language (JavaScript), using the same framework. Because Mojito applications are written in JavaScript, they can run on the client (in the browser) and on the server (with Node.js)

I have a thing for virtual machines that are implemented in the language (or a subset of the language) they are built to execute. If I were in the academia or just had a little bit more free time I would definitely start working on a JavaScript VM written in JavaScript. Actually this would not be…
