Status report: JavaScript software development

Spent the last weekend (& every evening since!) learning the JavaScript/HTML development ecosystem. Did a crash course in Node.js and build automation with Gulp; got acquainted with CoffeeScript and it’s improved version LiveScript, learned how to manage dependencies and use library loading (i.e., require()) in JavaScript. Latest achievement — semi-automated unit tests for the whole thing with Karma+Mocha+Chai. Now I have a small project that is written in HTML + LiveScript and using require(), which compiles to pure HTML+JavaScript and is unit-tested. Loads of fun.
