    This Week in JavaScript - 21 October 2013

    This is a weekly update of some interesting things relating to JavaScript, to help encourage discussion and to bring some potentially new ideas to the fore.

    Here's what we've seen of interest this week.

    Beginner

    Thinking Inside The Box With Vanilla JavaScript - a quick look at some underused native, more-or-less cross-browser JS features.

    JavaScript Fundamentals - if it’s not fun, it’s not JavaScript!

    Advanced

    Watching

    1024+ Seconds of JS Wizardry - a talk given by Martin Kleppe at JSConf EU 2013. Very entertaining, but it will make your brain hurt.


    Take a look at these recent happenings in JavaScript, let us know what you think about them, and we'll have some more to inspire you next week.

    He does... but it is because he's got such a strong accent that sometimes it is hard to understand what he says

    I know what you mean, but living in Germany I kind of don't notice any more.
    I think I would find it harder to watch if he has a Spanish accent

    Wow keep this stuff up! This is great. I loved mumbly-german-dude's talk, reminded me of the too-short WAT lightning talk, and I was re-introduced to that table API code that I know I'll be using to rewrite some slow-*ss jQuery junk we're doing now.

    I love simple JS tools like that. Others I've recently discovered include classList, querySelector, textContent and scrollIntoView.
