Alex Russell on browsers, standards, and the process of progress.

TAE Keynote

I had the pleasure of doing a Keynote with Joe Walker at the Ajax Experience in Boston yesterday. Our slides went something like this:

I say 'something like', because we actually presented from the wrong set. We got the slides to version 1.0 before the talk, but then presented from something like version 0.9. Particularly annoying was the spelling mistake that we fixed on the slide before we talked about how people trust you if you can spell.

The short version of the talk is this: "To continue to be the winning platform, the web need to continue to evolve. Web developers can help by encouraging browser manufacturers to add new features and not stagnate"

Update: my slides from the Dojo 1.0 talk are also up over at the SitePen Blog.
