Doug Crockford
About the talk:

Software development is hampered by a specific set of design mistakes that were made in the first programming languages and repeated in everything that has been done since. And, somewhat miraculously, JavaScript is going to make it right, radically transforming the way we write applications. Again. In the Loop of History, it has all happened before, but it has never happened like this.

For a sneak peak at the content of this talk (and five earlier talks), all on the future of Javascript, see Doug Vrockford's blog:


There is no downloadable version of the slides for this talk available at this time.

About the speaker:

Douglas Crockford has been well described as the world's foremost authority on JavaScript. His JavaScript: the Good Parts talks have been around for a while, but recently he concluded giving a five-part updated series, entitled Crockford on JavaScript. For any JavaScript developer, this talk is a must-hear!
