I’m very happy to say that I will speak at at, and participate in, JSConf.eu in Berlin this upcoming weekend!
I heard/read about the conference when it was in its planning stage, but since I was already scheduled to speak at Øredev this week and had some other things to attend to, I early on discarded the idea of attending JSConf.eu.
However, as things got closer, I realized I could actually be a part of it, and given the impact of the event and all the interesting talks, I felt I would really like to talk there as well!
In May this year at the Scandinavian Web Developer Conference 2009, I as well as Jan Lehnardt and Malte Ubl gave presentations, and interestingly enough, together with Holger Blank, they are organizing JSConf.eu. 🙂
So, I got on touch with them over the weekend and spoke with Malte, and basically got to hear that they would love to have me do a talk, but that the budget wouldn’t cover my expenses – which is fair enough, my proposal was “drastically late”, as Malte called it :-), and the JSConf.eu 2009 conference schedule had already been organized. So, I spoke to my employer, Valtech , who graciously immediately offered to sponsor me! 🙂
Will you be there?
