Echos of EmpireJS

Overall, my initial impressions were mixed. I was very interested in parsing a new language with PegJS, mildly interested in code analysis tools, and lost interest when it came to fabricating a crude drum pad instrument. But whatever your pleasure or poison, hopefully the earnest appeal for community and improving the world through software development, and more importantly, by just being a passionate human, strikes a deep chord within. This is the first conference I've ever been to that affected me so deeply (and unexpectedly). And while it would be ridiculous to assume that this is unique to the JS crowd, they seem to have it. In spades.
