You want to do WHAT with JavaScript?!

Born in the mid 90´s as the stepdaughter of Java Applets in Netscape Navigator, JavaScript has gone a long way. Once used to validate forms and to dynamically change the background color of webpages, JavaScript is now the number one citizen in the interwebs. Why? Because you can do all kinds of crazy and fascinating stuff with it! In this talk Sebastian will show what´s possible today: 3D Engines, Single Page Apps, Video Chats, End to End Javascript Apps, controlling Robots and more... Just be surprised and follow Sebastian and JavaScript where no other programming language has gone before!
