Abstract

Javascript is a bad language to program in and a great language to compile into. In this talk you will learn about some of the exciting languages and paradigms cropping up on the outskirts of the Javascript ecosystem.

What will the audience get from this talk: You will learn things like how does transpiling to Javascript work, you'll get a quick look at ClojureScript, Elm, and PureScript, find out about new tools and paradigms that these language bring to the development experience, and a word on interoperability.
