While asm.js does not fit any of my use cases, this new effort from V8 team would potentially help so much!

tl;dr V8 (Chrome) team is developing limited subset of the #JavaScript   language that throws in cases that usually affect performance (think "use strict", but stricter). V8 is also trying to add types to JS (based on TypeScript). 

Info: https://developers.google.com/v8/experiments?utm_source=javascriptweekly&utm_medium=email
Preso: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1v38H64XQBNT1p2XzFGWWhCR1k/view
Design Doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Qk0qC4s_XNCLemj42FqfsRLp49nDQMZ1y7fwf5YjaI4/view#

StrongMode can be now enabled in Chrome Canary :) And there's one interesting mention on how Object.observe breaks all optimization ideas.

Wohoo! Exciting! :)

Mind blowing presentation about ES7 async features:

I don't think this is a direction that #JavaScript should take, but it's still pretty interesting nonetheless.

One of the little surprising features of +The Go Programming Language is that slices can have extra "hidden values" from the underlying array. 

// Let's say someone calls your function My with slice s of length 2. 
func My(s []int) {
    fmt.Println(len(s), s)
    //> 2 [1 2]

    // but then you reslice it with len 6
    x := s[:6]
    fmt.Println(len(x), x)
    //> 6 [1 2 3 4 5 6]
    // "huh, where are those extra values from?" ... you might think ;)
}

https://www.codehunt.com/ is quite fun surprisingly. And it makes you better in basic programming in Java or C# as a side effect.

How big are Google's datacenters? Google sent envelope to Randal Munroe (the author of xkcd.com) ;)

Am I getting too old when I know what GORILLA.BAS is and I would probably find it on my 2TB external hard-drive? o_O

You know you have reached rock bottom when:

#trb h2.tr-dlpn>span>div .TopLeft {
    position: absolute !important;
    margin-left: -11px;
    display: table-cell;
    z-index: 10000001;
}
