Today is the final day of Fluent 2013, another conference focusing on JavaScript. There were tons of fascinating talks, everything from ECMAScript 6 to Web Components, organized in several parallel tracks. Overall, the event was very exciting.

The talks from the plenary sessions are already available on YouTube. For other sessions, you’ll need to purchase the All-Access Pass. Meanwhile, many slide decks have been posted to sites like SlideShare and Speaker Deck. Of course, attending the talks was not everything, I had some fun meeting and catching up with old friends as well making new acquaintances.

I did a presentation on Improving JavaScript Code Quality to a crowded audience. If you follow this blog, what I have shown there is likely familiar to you. I did cover topics like syntax validation,
polluting/unused variables, code coverage, complexity analysis and visualization, Boolean traps, ternary conditionals, scalability issue, programmatic rename refactoring, as well as various defensive strategies like coverage thresholds, complexity monitoring, Git precommit hook, and many others. If you missed it, you can enjoy the slide deck (PDF, 6.8 MB). Update: You can also watch the 42-minute video.

Fluent 2013 completed my spring conference activities. Now I need to get ready for the upcoming summer tour. See you next year at Fluent 2014!
