@media Ajax Presentation: Metaprogramming JavaScript

By Matthew Magain

Dan Webb, one of the seven rock star authors of SitePoint’s upcoming title The Art & Science of JavaScript, gave a presentation at @media Ajax last week titled
Metaprogramming JavaScript.

Dan has been good enough to make his slides available via slideshare. While they’re obviously less meaningful without the accompanying audio, it’s an interesting topic and the slides are worth persisting if you’re curious about just what is possible with JavaScript.

Incidentally, the chapter that Dan contributed to the book covers the same topic — it’s one of those rare chapters about a programming language that makes you go “Wow!” (it’s definitely more of the “science” than the “art”).

The book‘s available in January, folks. And it’s a cracker.
