Continuum is an ECMAScript 6 (draft) virtual machine written in ECMAScript 3. In this talk we'll go through an overview of what Continuum does, how it works, and why it's useful.
Continuum maintains compatibility with all popularly used JS engines in use today (IE8, modern browsers, Node.js). While Continuum isn't efficient enough to use in production code, we will explore how it is useful for quickly experimenting with new language features, try new ways of debugging and visualization, and a view of the ECMAScript specification as implemented in terms of itself.
