Official Intelligence

No matter which library you prefer, or which stack, or even which precompiler you support - one thing is inevitable. There's a human behind it.

Behind the boilerplate, behind the package management, behind next month's answer to a problem that doesn't exist yet, there's a human.

This month at SydJS we're going to celebrate some of that humanity.

Thinking about humans when you code.
Making code think more like a human.
Helping human's see past that natural ecoding.

If you're a human, you'd be mad to not get along to SydJS this week.

    I declare, therefore I am

    by Justin Anderson

    Before a computer runs a program, often a developer will attempt to run the program in their mind by reasoning about what should happen.

    This talk focuses on thinking plainly about the language features in JavaScript itself. It addresses the kind of guarantees the language's features do and don't have, and what those features help us understand what is happening in our programs.
