Conference Tour: JSConf, Next, SWDC

Making final arrangements for my (first) "conference tour" this summer:

I'll be at JSConf at 24th and 25th of April in Washington, DC, probably speaking about Joose on Track B.

Next up is my employer's own Next Conference here in Hamburg. I'm still actively working on the presentation. The topic will be "Building Postmodern Web Applications". I'll look into the building blocks of the post Web 2.0 era web applications and I'll be talking about applying techniques from 90s era desktop apps to the kind of web apps we'll be building. My general example will be the bespin browser-based source code editor which is my current favorite open-source project.

Last but not least, I'll be at the Swedish Web Developer Conference in Stockholm, once again talking about Joose and maybe some other stuff. Here is the summary of my talk:

Joose - JavaScript 2 Enterprise Edition
Come see how we turn JavaScript from a beautiful expressive light weight programming language into a slow, committee driven, 500 pound beast. Oops.^M
Joose is a self-hosting meta object system for JavaScript with support for classes, inheritance, mixins, traits, method modifiers and more that aims to make object-oriented programming with JavaScript expressive, declarative and very productive. The talk will introduce the core features of Joose, show how the object system can help you WriteBetterCode (TM) and walk though examples and the code that drives them.
