More Brendan Eich: JavaScript’s Future

Category: JavaScript

Okay, so I lied. The last Brendan Eich link wasn’t an interview at all; it was an audio feed of a presentation.

To make up for it, here’s a link to a recent blog entry from Brendan discussing his thoughts for the immediate future of JavaScript in Mozilla (along with some pie in the sky).

With DHTML and AJAX hot (or hot again; we’ve been here before, and I don’t like either acronym), I am asked frequently these days about JavaScript, past and future.

It’s so weird to see the Web stack evolving again after years of relative stagnation.

“Stagnation”? Perhaps a better term would be “dormancy”. We just took a few years off to mount the EJB snipe hunt. Now that we know what the server-side can’t (or shouldn’t) do for us, it’s only natural for us to come back to this universal client we call a browser and put it through its paces. I think its to our credit that we can admit our mistakes, cut our losses, and start fresh with these not-so-new ideas.
