JavaScript 2017: Update From TC39 and Tales From The Blockchain

In his third participation in the FinJS series, Brendan Eich will present the closing keynote at FinJS Chicago, entitled “JavaScript 2017: update from TC39 and tales from the blockchain.” He will discuss the latest news about JavaScript following the Ecma TC39 meeting in July 2017, including BigInt going to stage 3 and other developments. Brendan will also reflect on JavaScript, Solidity (Ethereum’s JS-like smart contract language), and language design based on his recent experience with the sale contract of the Basic Attention Token, detailing Ethereum’s 256-bit integers use versus BigInt advantages.
