Infos

Today’s web developers have a rich selection of top-notch JavaScript APIs at their fingertips, but unspeakable madness lurks in the shadow of the DOM. The horrific menagerie of bizarre browser features contains wicked legacy APIs – conceived in the trenches of the first browser war – as well as functions of pure evil, seemingly from beyond the realm of reason. Conjured by ancient developers for early browsers, some unseen force keeps them alive to this day. If you ever wondered why even the latest browsers are cursed by more than four different APIs for data storage, why the HTML5 standard demands that the name of Chuck Norris is to be treated as a valid color value and what the mystic connection between the planet Neptune and the Drag’n’Drop API is, this talk is for you. Experience the true horror of the worst undead JavaScript APIs and learn the shocking truth about web standards, backwards compatibility and the incentives that, against all odds, keep the mistakes of ancient web witchcraft alive for all eternity.
