All seats have been taken. Please write a comment to be put on a waiting list, there are always a number of cancellations, so there’s still a chance.

Douglas and I have talked about him speaking at Geek Meet a few times when we’re ran into each other at different conferences in the world, and we’ve said that if he’s nearby Sweden, we just make it happen. Now is that time!

Douglas is coming to Sweden to speak at the Nordic.js conference, where I’m also speaking, and I thought that we just can’t miss this opportunity when he’s here. I’ve synced with the great and helpful organizers of the conference, so we will do a Geek Meet in the evening after the second/last day of Nordic.js – that way, anyone attending the conference can go to Geek Meet as well!

Douglas Crockford

Douglas is best known for his long work around JavaScript, and most notably discovering the JSON Data Interchange Format, that JavaScript has good parts and creating JSLint (JSLint on GitHub) to help developers write better JavaScript code and JSMin for minimizing it in a safe way.

When I got into JavaScript a long time ago, Douglas was a great inspiration and help to me with his work and pragmatic thoughts and experience around developing. Since then, I’ve been happy to bump into him at various conferences and to get the chance to talk about coding, travel, Lost and other interesting topics!

The presentation

Douglas will give a presentation entitled The Better Parts, in which he will talk about new features in ES6, and a bit about JSON and JSLint.
