Javascript Quotes


"JavaScript is the world's most misunderstood programming language." - Douglas Crockford

"Javascript is the duct tape of the Internet." - Charlie Campbell

"In JavaScript, there is a beautiful, elegant, highly expressive language that is buried under a steaming pile of good intentions and blunders." - Douglas Crockford

"JavaScript is the only language that I'm aware of that people feel they don't need to learn before they start using it." - Douglas Crockford

"I have been writing JavaScript for 8 years now, and I have never once found need to use an uber function. The super idea is fairly important in the classical pattern, but it appears to be unnecessary in the prototypal and functional patterns. I now see my early attempts to support the classical model in JavaScript as a mistake." - Douglas Crockford

"A language like Ruby is a toolbox with some really neat little tools that do their job really nicely. JavaScript is a leather sheath with a really really sharp knife inside. That knife can cut anything, and with it you can do anything. You can kill a bear. You can catch fish. You can whittle a piece of wood into a pony. It's even a toothpick." - Nick Morgan
