Talk: JavaScript – Programming Style & Your Brain by Douglas Crockford

Be a better Programmer

This keynote talk from YUIConf 2011 is one of my favorites! Yahoo! JavaScript architect Douglas Crockford explains why good code style is important for every programmer. He shows several examples in JavaScript and illustrates the benefits of JSLint. A very interesting and amusing contribution of a real mentor!

      Really nice, thanks for share it. I didn't know about Douglas Crockford

      EDIT: If I had seen before my SAPUI5 applications would be a little bit different xD

      I know what you mean 🙂 . Besides, it's sometimes very uncomfortable to change your programming style into something else. But when guys like Douglas Crockford clarifies the benefits of better code style, it can be great fun to create applications in other ways.
