Summary of JSConf.eu and Video of my talk about JavaScript meta programming with Joose

I haven't really written about the blast I had organizing JSConf.eu together with @hblank and @janl. We really didn't know what we were doing and it all worked out well, anyway :)

Here is what Steve Souders said in a comment to a blog post on the Yahoo Developer Network.
... I was so impressed with the quality of this conference. The speakers were great, but even more important the *audience* was hugely technical and informed about the issues of JS development. Being a conference co-chair, I know what it takes to put on an event like this. Hats off to Jan, Malte, and Holger for organizing this first time event and making it such a success.
We are really proud of this and we are going to do it again next year!

Of course, I totally underestimated the effort to orchestrate such a conference and agreed to do a talk myself. Honestly I was quite nervous but it wasn't too bad. Here is the video (And yes, the title of the presentation is supposed to be ironic).
