August 14, 2015. Mark your calendars. That’s my next birthday. Another important date is June 18, 2015–it’s when the ECMA General Assembly will vote on and approve the 6th edition of Ecma-262 and usher in the next era of JavaScript.

For example, take a look at this set of pie charts, using different patterns for different […]

In the first post in this series, I walked through inventory, preparation, calibration and assembly of the SumoBot Kit that was provided to all attendees of this year’s RobotsConf. From there, I showed how to control the bot with an Arduino Uno, Electric Imp and Spark Core. In this article, I’m going walk through two […]

The bag also included an Arduino […]

Many of us use npm on a daily basis to manage our server-side and client-side dependencies, but do we know what goes on behind the scenes? What does the npm ecosystem look like from 10,000 feet? We set out to answer some of those questions in September of this year and are really excited to […]

Every time I contribute to JSHint, I learn a little more about JavaScript. My most recent fantastical knowledge adventure led me to the behavior of the name attribute of function objects. JSHint has an interesting but lesser-known feature: code analysis reports. When used programatically, JSHint will return an object with some data about the code […]
