JavaScript Weekly
Issue 197 — September 5, 2014
JavaScript Jabber
An epic interview/group discussion featuring Brendan Eich where he walks through JavaScript’s history, warts and all. A lot of back-story and interesting tangents here. It’s almost two hours long but worth the listen to get more insights into JavaScript and its development.

An easy to understand JavaScript DSL to make writing and debugging integration tests in an English-like Cucumber/Gherkin-style simpler. It interacts with your app via a real browser to test its state against your expectations.

A look at some of the more sophisticated or interesting ways to create and work with objects, including ES6’s proxies and symbols. If you want to do some diving into JavaScript’s more technical parts, you should enjoy this.
