JavaScript all over the place

On this site, you will find a lot of writing about JavaScript. Every page is focused on the language, what it is, how it works, what it is used for and how to develop in it. It is JavaScript as long as the eye can see!

Who wrote this?

My name is Bjørn, and I am a professional programmer, currently working as a web developer in e-commerce. Programming has been a passion of mine since I was about eight years old, and web development since the nineties.

This part of my website is all about JavaScript, a programming language which I have grown to love. Coming from programming mainly in C, C++ and later Java, I had my share of struggles getting my head around the language, but as time progressed naturally leading me to dive deeper into the language, I have come to appreciate JavaScript for its enormous flexibility and expressive power. Many developers have prejudices against JavaScript, but I have become convinced, that if you give the language a fair chance, taking it for what it is; a very different mainstream programming language, you will come to understand its power and sparks of genius too.

What is going on with all that JS?

One day I decided, that after working with JavaScript for years, writing thousands if not hundreds of thousands of lines of code in it, that maybe I have some knowledge worth sharing with other developers or newcomers to the language. Therefore I have dedicated this part of my website exclusively to writing about JavaScript, sharing links to useful resources and giving my approach to JavaScript development.

I hope that no matter your current attachment to the language, you will get something out of my sharing, and that you will enjoy the challenges of learning something new, or simply pick up a few tricks here and there.
