Outline

Several recent projects have tried to apply functional paradigms in javascript. Underscore.js is one the most exciting & widely adopted such library on both NodeJS as well as the browser.

The talk will elaborate on the javascript techniques used by the authors of underscore.js, along with a walk-through of the speakers experience in building underscore.json - a library along the same lines that exposes a friendler, functional and simple way to parse json on the browser or nodejs alike with the simple library that is less that 2KB minified & available on github under an MIT license.

i have pushed 0.0.2 of underscore.json with examples on github that solved a pain point that i had.

0.0.3 will be production ready, and will be ready before the conference.
