I specifically wanted to provide a conference that was affordable, and not up in the reaches of £300-400, which is why the tickets are set initially at £100.
So, one day, taking a break from the snow and sitting in a pub with my wife (an event organiser, no less), we decided to take it forward. Julie has been running the logistically side of the conference, and I’ve been busily working on the web site and speakers – all of which are available today.
The line up is pretty awesome, I’m sure you’ll agree. We’ve got the following:
- Jake Archibald who worked on BBC’s Glow library talking about performance.
- Christian Heilmann on a subject to be confirmed.
- Peter-Paul Koch from the infinitely useful QuirksMode, on a subject to be confirmed.
The event is a one day conference taking place on Friday 20th November this year.
The direct dictionary definition of Full Frontal is: with nothing concealed or held back. This is the essence of the entire conference: to understand this language who may have had a bit of a bad reputation over the years, but has ended up winning all our hearts – and becoming the most popular programming language in the World (certainly adoption – because we’ve got the compiler in every single browser)!
This conference is for front end engineers and anyone wanting to understand what they can do with the language, the right way of doing things and how to tune the language to do what they want it to do.
It’s probably also worth mentioning that the entire site is html5 and working in IE6 and Firefox2, so go ahead and view source and help yourselves :-)
Please help spread the word, and if this is something that gets you excited (as it does me), please go and sign up at full-frontal.org!
