"The first rule of was: "no more than 140 bytes". With that in mind, Jed Schmidt kicked off JavaScript's answer to the LPGA tour: the largest code golf competition the language has ever seen.


But what started as a novelty soon became surprisingly useful, with entries to date including usable modules handling AJAX, pubsub, dom events, routers, physics engines, polyfills, testing frameworks, validation, color converters, and screen savers.
