Java

+ - Making JavaScript Tolerable for A Dyed-in-the-Wool C/C++/Java Guy 6 6

DocDyson writes: I'm a dyed-in-the-wool C/C++/Java developer with over 20 years of experience. I'm making a good living and having fun doing back-end Java work right now, but I strongly believe in being a generalist, so I'm finally trying to learn the HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript future of the Web. However, I find JavaScript's weak typing and dynamic nature difficult to adapt to because I'm so used to strongly-typed, compiled languages with lots of compile-time error-checking and help from the IDE. Does anyone out there who has made this transition have any tips in terms of the best tools and libraries to use to make JavaScript more palatable to us old-school developers?

Work without a vision is slavery, Vision without work is a pipe dream, But vision with work is the hope of the world.
