Dev Talk Monday: Nordic.js 2014 Amazing Visual JavaScript Experiments and FRP

Dev Talk Monday is the series that brings you awesome dev talks every Monday

Today I bring you a couple of JavaScript talks from the Nordic.js conference that was held in Stockholm a couple of weeks ago.

First, the completely unexpected (to me) yet super awesome and inspiring talk on Visual JavaScript Experiments by @hakimel. Makes you want to be as great as he is in building beautiful things with HTML, JS and CSS.

Secondly, a very gentle introduction to FRP (Functional Reactive Programming) by @sergimansilla in which he explains the limitations of asynchronous JavaScript with callbacks, then jumps briefly into promises to finally arrive to FRP and illustrate its usefulness through various interesting and eye-opening examples.

Hope you have a great week ahead of you!
