Light-weight, Collaborative Javascript Debugging: JS Bin on Joyent Accelerators

March 11, 2009 - by grassonthefield

JS Bin is a very useful utility offering collaborative JavaScript debugging. From the About section:

JS Bin allows you to edit and test JavaScript and HTML (reloading the URL also maintains the state of your code – new tabs doesn’t). Once you’re happy you can save, and send the URL to a peer for review or help. They can then make further changes saving anew if required.

At Joyent we’re pleased to be offering the cloud infrastructure for JS Bin. We have high hopes for the future of JavaScript both on the client and the server.

To celebrate JS Bin on Joyent Accelerators we will give away five one-year subscriptions to entry-level Accelerators to people that answer one of the following five questions:

1) What place did Jason Hoffman come in for the Joyent 2007 weight loss contest? Jason came in ___________.
2) Please provide a URL to pictures showing Jason Hoffman before/after his tremendous weight gain? URL: _________________.
3) Much of Jason Hoffman’s earlier weight gain came from eating ____________.
4) Jason Hoffman’s current weight is _____________.
5) Jason Hoffman smokes ___________ packs of cigarettes daily.

You can answer questions in the comments. The first one to answer a question correctly will win an Accelerator. One win per player. No Joyent employees, thanks.

Update: congratulations to all the winners. Contest done. Prizes will be sent out soon.
