Attending Nordic.js this year felt like experiencing the first Conference 2.0. Everything was a perfect amount of awesomeness, wackyness and fun. I’ll definitely be there next year.

NaN the Wiser: Understanding dynamic types in JavaScript

Developers love JavaScript. It is supported across a software stack and, as a dynamically-typed language, it is not constrained by types. However, converting types can have unexpected outputs! This talk will go through common trip-ups JavaScript developers run into when taking advantage of dynamic types and look at the runtime code that drives them. Learn to love these language quirks - this is one talk you won't want to [Object object].

The Layers Of The Web

The World Wide Web turned 30 last year. The web has changed quite a bit over that time. But progress has been evolutionary rather than revolutionary: changes have accreted on top of what has come before. This layered iterative approach also works for building websites. Together we'll uncover how to build resilient, performant, accessible and beautiful structures that work with the grain of the materials of the web.

Jeremy Keith

Jeremy Keith lives in Brighton, England where he makes websites with the splendid design agency Clearleft. You may know him from such books as DOM Scripting, Bulletproof Ajax, HTML5 For Web Designers, Resilient Web Design, and, most recently, Going Offline.

What's New and What's Next? The current and future state of JS

Let's talk about the awesome new features that have recently landed in ECMAScript, the official name of the JavaScript language. We'll explore the benefits of these new features through examples, but we'll also take a look behind the scenes and see how features like these are proposed, discussed and integrated into the ever evolving language. We'll spend a little time learning about the standards organization, Ecma, as well as an Ecma technical committee, TC39, which oversees the development of ECMAScript. We'll also peek at some proposed features that are currently in process to see what the future of JavaScript will include. It'll be fun!

Investing in Open-Source

In this talk you will learn about the value that an investment in JavaScript ecosystems provides to businesses on different levels. By example of organisations who benefit and give back to the open-source projects around JavaScript libraries, you will see why paying your team to spend time on OSS might be the best business decision you will make this year.
