JavaScript has moved from providing minor interaction to a full scale development platform. Major application such as Gmail and Google Calendar have hundreds of thousands of lines of code all written in JavaScript. Mobile browsers have full featured browsers but performance and memory constraints become major considerations. And then there is the whole world of single page applications. This session will look at how to write code that can be maintained as well as developing build processes to catch common errors before deploying to production.
