Event description

Description

Even though it seems like JavaScript "is eating the World", it is not exactly so. In fact, this exact same pattern of growth, use and expansion was found in the history of today's lingua franca: English.
This talk will draw a parallel between a natural language (EN) and a programming language (JS), compare their syntax and evolution, unveiling oddities and similarities as well as touch the advantages - and common pitfalls - of having a cross-boundary language in this increasingly small and diverse world.


Who is this best for?
Tech students, professionals and anyone interested to learn more about JavaScript.
