“JavaScript” is Not a Dirty Word

Regular Session

If you're an ASP.NET Web or Client Side Developer, the name "JavaScript" may induce feelings of dread or even terror. It's weird. It's not type-safe. It appears to be a bit flaky. It's hard to debug. Heck, it isn't even compiled! Besides, I have all these nifty ASP.NET controls that take care of all that for me, right?

Thanks to client side libraries like jQuery, Angular, and others, JavaScript is experiencing a renaissance. It's evolved from that weird browser language you used to use because you had to, to a powerful tool for creating web applications with richly featured client-side user interface. But it doesn't stop there; JavaScript is everywhere from server side code to hybrid mobile applications to IOT devices. If you're a .NET developer who's avoided JavaScript, it's time to jump back into the pool! This session will explain some of the key difference between JavaScript and C#/VB.NET, what the major JavaScript frameworks are and what they do, and show you how to take advantage of the power of JavaScript in your ASP.NET application.
