The browser is the most deployed application runtime in the world. I realize something new every time I watch this talk by Tali Garsiel. There is also a corresponding online manual by Tali and Paul Irish called How Browsers Work.
Speaking of Paul Irish, who remembers yayQuery? This video reminds me how important it is to read the source code of the libraries we choose.
Jafar Husain’s talk blew my mind when I first saw it last year. Jafar Husain also blew my mind in EggHead’s Asynchronous Programming: The End of The Loop series. Admittedly, I didn’t realize I was following along with Jafur until we started playing with Reactive Extensions in the Observable lessons.
