Session: Higher-Order Javascript

Thursday, 10:15 - 11:05
Track: Web development

Learning higher order programming techniques is a right of passage for any serious programmer working in languages that have first class functions. Learning about a surprisingly small set of techniques for factoring code when functions themselves are just another data structure will change the way you look at programs and programming languages for ever. It certainly did for me. Javascript is a great language for applying these techniques - you're probably using them every day already.

Piers Cawley

Piers is a long term Perl programmer whose returned to the language after a serious dalliance with Ruby. He's also dabbled more or less seriously with JavaScript, Lisp, Scheme, Smalltalk, Clojure and is currently learning Haskell for about the third time. One day it'll stick. When he's not working on the iPlayer for the BBC, he's a folk singer and photographer and, for one conference only, Giles Bowkett's stunt double.
