ASTs are an incredibly powerful tool for understanding and manipulating JavaScript. We'll explore this topic by looking at examples from ESLint, a pluggable static analysis tool, and Browserify, a client-side module bundler. Through these examples we'll see how ASTs can be great for analyzing and even for modifying your JavaScript. This talk should be interesting to anyone that regularly builds apps in JavaScript either on the client-side or on the server-side.
