    JavaScript isn’t just for the web anymore. Andrew will show how javascript can interact with physical hardware. This talk will cover the basics of writing a custom Node.js addon that interfaces with a Nintendo Wii Remote. In particular, Andrew will discuss his experiences hacking Node.js and the challenges in developing a multithreaded Node.js addon.

    The end result is that with less than 50 lines of javascript (both client and server side), Node.js and socket.io can read input from a wiimote and update the browser in realtime!

    Description: Let's try building something in ClojureScript using Om. Om is a thin ClojureScript wrapper over React created by David Nolen. Adam Solove will walk through how how Om uses React, and then show an example of building a little UI with it. React is a functional JavaScript API from Facebook for building interactive browser apps (there is another video from Adam that covers ReactJS in detail available here: vimeo.com/92687646).

    Speaker: Adam Solove is a DC area engineer exploring better ways to build user interfaces for the web. He works for Pagemodo. He also recently spoke at NationJS 2013 (twitter.com/nationjs).

    Description: I bet you've been writing JS for years and you think you're pretty good at it. I bet you think you know all about how functions create closured scope, and how `this` gets bound, and even how `.prototype` works. Or, rather, you probably don't care because your framework or library takes care of all that for you.

    JavaScript is generally considered one of the most misunderstood (and maligned) languages of the modern programming era. And there's good reason for that, because most developers who write JS never actually deeply *know* how the language works. They blame all their WTFs on language bugs, instead of the shortcomings in understanding.

    This talk is going to re-visit some of the 'tough parts' of the language by declaring 'New Rules' (Bill Maher style) for the language.

    For instance: 'New rule: Stop using 'this' until you fully understand how it gets assigned.'

    This talk is going to be hard-core on coding and expects a solid understanding of the language.

    Speaker: Kyle Simpson is a JavaScript Systems Architect from Austin, TX. He focuses on JavaScript, HTML5, web performance optimization, and 'middle-end' application architecture. If something can't be done in JavaScript or web stack technology, he's probably bored by it. Kyle runs several open-source projects, writes books, and speaks at meetups and tech conferences. He also helps drive the local startup/enterpreneurial community through events, coworking activities, etc.
