Learning functional Javascript through Koans

Given how Javascript interpreters are improving in leaps and bounds; and that it seems to be the only language that will be supported by all web devices; its time to for me to revive my Javascript skilz. Fortunately the tooling has improved greatly; Eclipse 3.6 for Web Developers and JsTestDriver bring a refactoring and a unit test runner to Javascript development.

Interestingly, Javascript seems to have more functional than object orientated characteristics; so it seems reasonable to learn it wearing my functional hat.

I’ve been enjoying learning Ruby syntax via RubyKoans – little tests that teach you syntax and convention as you make them pass

I though I’d create a similar set of Functional Javascript Koans to help refresh my Javascript skills.

Its a bit rough; so please fork and contibute back improvements.


So, what do you think ?
