JavaScript Tips and Tricks

How many developers frequently find themselves writing significantly more JavaScript than they ever expected in their day to day development? Whether you are an old school C# or VB.NET developer moving to the web, an expert in ASP.NET WebForms or MVC - modern solutions rely heavily on JavaScript in many areas. Moving from Visual Studio’s extensive debugging environment to troubleshooting JavaScript in one of the many available browsers is a daunting task for many developers.

This talk will provide a large number of tips and tricks our developers and designers use to write and debug JavaScript heavy solutions. We will discuss a few 3rd party libraries, but for the most part we will discuss tools, techniques, and resources that are invaluable when developing modern web applications.

Some of these tips include:

  • Effectively using browser development tools to easily debug JavaScript
  • Configuring Visual Studio to make your JavaScript development easier
  • External tools like jsFiddle for testing/debugging JavaScript
  • Monitoring and debugging asynchronous web traffic initiated from JavaScript
  • Simple coding concepts that made our lives easier moving from C# heavy development to JavaScript heavy development
  • Resources for learning to write better JavaScript
  • Much more…

Come prepared to contribute any tips your team may have learned in your transition to a JavaScript heavy development environment.
