Once you start playing with first-class functions and closures in a language, playing with them in another doesn’t represent a barrier to entry. I might describe this feeling as “coming home”–when all the toys you are familiar with are available for your evil purposes once more.
Recently, I’ve been going through a lot of good material. Here’s what I recommend:
- Douglas Crockford: “Theory of the DOM” (videos, 3 parts)
- MSDN: Create Advanced Web Applications With Object-Oriented Techniques (review if you watched the videos)
Found a pattern? :-D Yeah, he’s that good.
