There are few (if any) languages that force “open source” as much as JavaScript. JavaScript has seen a meteoric rise in interest, excitement, energy, and unfortunately hype in the past 3 years. It has become one of the fastest interpreted programming languages available, mainly to due to vested interest from companies like Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Mozilla. It has broken out of the browser with node.js and is rapidly captivating the top server-side development minds. It has new features on the way with ES-Harmony, many of which are available through new clothes like CoffeeScript. This is a survey of everything awesome that is currently going on in the world of JavaScript, none of the hype just a baseline survey.
