    Thanks for the post :) I’ve posted better quality slides to Flickr, and I’ve converted the notes to HTML (with fragment links for individual sections).

    Just noticed a minor error on http://simon.incutio.com/slides/2006/etech/javascript/js-tutorial.061.html. This should be:

    function avgArray(arr) {
    var sum = 0;
    for (var i = 0, j = arr.length; i arr[i];
    }
    return sum / arr.length;
    }

    Let’s try this again. The “arguments” should have been “arr”, such as:

    function avgArray(arr) {
    var sum = 0;
    for (var i = 0, j = arr.length; i < j; i++) {
    sum += arr[i];
    }
    return sum / arr.length;
    }
