When your code does a number on you: Navigating numbers in JavaScript

A presentation at DDD Sydney in in Sydney NSW, Australia by Meggan Turner

What happens when the numbers you’re working with are too big for JavaScript? How do numbers behave beyond JavaScript’s integer limit?

In a talk which promises to be more interesting than your typical high school math class, I’ll be bringing you down the rabbit hole that is numbers in JavaScript. We’ll explore how they’re implemented, how we can best write, format, convert & calculate them, and what to do when we’re forced to handle really big (or really small) numbers.
