JavaScript Techniques and Dustin Diaz

Dustin Diaz is one of my hero’s. I just got done reading one of his articles. He is the kind of developer I aspire to be. He is a bad-ass programmer that eats Javascript for breakfast, at Google of all places. Next to him I idolize Douglas Crockford, David Flanagan, and Brendan Eich. All Javascript demi-gods in their own right.

The thing that really sets Dustin apart in my mind is that he is that I can see the two sides of his brain at work when I read his articles. There is the technical part that gets a kick from programming, then there is the creative side that says “yes that works, but it isn’t sexy enough.”

So there, a little bit of idol worship, I am done now.
