Fronteers 2010 — Brendan Eich announced

Just like last year, Fronteers, the Dutch association of front-end engineers, is organising a conference, and it looks quite good. For me personally the best part is that I don’t have to do a thing; contrary to the last two years I’m not involved in the organisation at all, and just have to show up and have a good time.

We’re especially pleased to be able to announce Brendan Eich, inventor of JavaScript and technical architect for the Mozilla project.

Fronteers 2010 will take place on 7 and 8 October in Tuschinski in Amsterdam. Early-bird tickets are € 275; around the end of June the price will go up.

Apart from Brendan, a few speakers have been announced: Cameron Adams, Jina Bolton, Jeff Croft, Jeremy Keith, and Nicholas Zakas will all come to Amsterdam in order to discuss the latest advances in front-end engineering. More speakers will be announced later, for a total of fourteen sessions.

In addition, on 5 and 6 October workshops will be held, for which there are still tickets available. Andy Clarke will give an advanced CSS styling workshop, while Dan Rubin will also give one on a topic to be revealed later.

Tickets are on sale now; and last year we sold out with more than a month to go before the conference. Although this year’s venue can accomodate more people than last year’s, we also expect more interest due to the success of Fronteers 2008 and Fronteers 2009. I advise you not to wait too long before buying a ticket.

I hope to be able to greet a few of my readers in Amsterdam on 7 and 8 October.
