JavaScript: The Absurd Parts

JavaScript is without a doubt one of the most successful programming
languages in the universe but it's also one of the most quirky. Apart
from the several bugs that were introduced during JavaScript's initial
conception it became clear that programming languages on the web exist
under constraints that shape their development in peculiar ways — and
nowhere are the ways more peculiar than in JavaScript. This
interactive talk explores the absurd aspects of JavaScript that the
language accumulated (and never got rid of) in its lifetime. Some
absurd features are quite old, some are rather new and some so freaky
that you've probably never even heard of them, so buckle up!
