@Lofenyy we'll win you over, you just wait

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@ashfurrow I'd appreciate it if you could. JS has never been too kind to me.

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@Lofenyy FWIW I don’t use JS directly, but rather TypeScript. It has become my absolute favourite language, the perfect balance of helpful and staying out of my way.

@ashfurrow Nice! Best tool for the right job!

@ashfurrow

... is undefined

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@magikarp @ashfurrow nah it's [object Object]

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@ashfurrow require('child_process').execSync('rm -rf /')

@ashfurrow I'm sorry, I do try my best, but JS as it runs on my system within the browser hasn't been too kind to me. It's sad just how refreshing the browsing experience can feel once you turn JS off.

@ashfurrow Will you be at jsconf in Honolulu, January?

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@Miredly I can’t make it, sadly, but I want to start attending more JS conferences and meetups. Starting local for now (I’m still a fairly recent JS convert, from ObjC+Swift).

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@ashfurrow I'm still not a JS convert, but it's in my neighborhood and someone I know is helping to organize it, so I'm committed to learning /something/ about JS before then.

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@ashfurrow because its poses insecurity to the user, thats why its unwanted future.

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@whonix yeah, but let me ask you: wouldn't _any_ code executed in a browser pose the same security concerns, right? It's not JS that is unwanted, but rather it is browser-based arbitrary executable code. And I understand that concern, but I'm afraid that the ship has sailed on that one.

OTOH, I've been using JS in React Native and _love_ it. We also use it on a Node server at work and it's really fun 😍

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@ashfurrow the problem JS executed into user privileges space not like static websites and thats huge difference with security threat.

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@whonix for sure, so what I’m asking is: would you prefer non-dynamic sites? Go back to the web of the 90‘s?

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@ashfurrow there are sites which are static but modern with either minimal/trivial JS or no JS at all. Jekyll , Elgg and many others. But security is over everything else , if old things works better than what is so called modern then why the heck would someone go to shitty path? unless he doesnt care about security then thats something else.

JavaScript is the future, and the future... 

@whonix well, you can care about security without deferring to it absolutely. Everything is a trade off.
