Presentation

Overview

In the past, IDEs had little to offer for dynamic languages and many JavaScript projects were considered too simple to warrant using one. However with the improved performance of today’s browsers and the growing popularity of powerful JavaScript frameworks, JavaScript projects are becoming larger and more complex. IDEs are also becoming┬ásmarter and now have a great deal to offer dynamic languages like JavaScript.

In this session, Rob McDiarmid will give you a feel for what it is like to work on a JavaScript application in WebStorm (JetBrains’ JavaScript IDE). You’ll learn how you can simplify your JavaScript and give your IDE a bit more to work with using TypeScript. Rob will also take a look at what the future of collaboration in the cloud might look like with Cloud 9.

Objective

Learn something new that will make you a happier and more productive developer.

  2. What Spy-JS is and how to use it
