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?

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.
