Description

If you’ve spent much time writing (or debugging) JavaScript, you’ve probably come across some quirky behavior, especially in the strange and wonderful ways Javascript handles math.

To unravel the mystery of JavaScript addition, we will go on an empirically-structured adventure through the JavaScript web console, Mathmagic Land, and the ECMAScript Language Specification.

With some help from Donald Duck, you will emerge with new perspective on the methods behind the JavaScript mayhem, and the inspiration and tools to explore new mysteries in Javascript yourself!
