Douglas Crockford PayPal

Douglas Crockford was born in the Frostbite Falls, Minnesota, but left when he was only six months old because it was just too damn cold.

He turned his back on a promising career in television when he discovered computers. He has worked in learning systems, small business systems, office automation, games, interactive music, multimedia, location-based entertainment, social systems, and programming languages. He is the inventor of Tilton, the ugliest programming language that was not specifically designed to be an ugly programming language.

He is best known for having discovered that there are good parts in JavaScript. This was an important and unexpected discovery. He also discovered the JSON Data Interchange Format, the world's most loved data format. And he works at Paypal.

Why now, why a conference?

In October 2011, Johannes founded Sthlm.js - a meetup group in Stockholm for anyone interested in Javascript. Since then, the group has grown from one member to over 1 300, making it one of the largest meetup groups in the Nordics.

Sthlm.js has hosted talks by thought leaders like Robert Nyman, Paul Lewis and many more, tickets usually sell out within one minute after having been released.

Since there hasn’t been a conference in the Nordics on the subject before, we thought it was due time. We want to bring everyone together and spend two full days on what we love the most - code.
