bach.js, an unhistory of how the great Baroque composer pioneered Javascript, 250 years before Netscape even existed

A talk from EMF 2014 by James Aylett

On Sunday August 31, 2014 at in Stage C

Participants in this very special JS Bachshop will have the opportunity to consider the use of motifs to ease maintainability, the difficulties of using callbacks to implement counterpoint, recently-unearthed innovations in Baroque-Driven Development, and just how far you can stretch a single pun. Audience participation recommended, and will probably involve singing or pretending to be the Elector of Saxony. May contain more music than Javascript, anecdotes about fainting trumpeters, and a diversion into ways of rehearsing the dissonant call of “Barabbas” in SMP 54.
