The Ajax Experience and other conferences

Next month will be a busy, conference- and travel-rich month. September will be exactly the same, but fortunately I've got some spare time in between (time that I'm going to need for my next big project).

Before revealing my exact schedule, I've got a new speaking gig to announce: The Ajax Experience, September 29th to October 1st, Boston. I will present the "State of the Browsers" session, in which I'm going to discuss the failings of modern browsers when it comes to DOM support, as well as quizzing a few framework authors about their handling of browser incompatibilities. It's going to be huge fun and I'm looking forward to it.

But before I head to Boston I'll be visiting conferences in Amsterdam, London, Boston (no, that's not an error), again Amsterdam, and again London. An ordered list is called for:

  1. Next Tuesday, 27 May, I'll speak at the Kings of Code conference in Amsterdam. This conference is sold out, so if you don't have a ticket already I'm afraid you can't attend it.
  2. The next day I'll be flying to London for @media 2008. Fortunately I won't have to present there; I can concentrate fully on the beer and the meeting of interesting people.
  3. Then, from June 2nd to 16th, I'll be on holiday in beautiful Greece on the island of Zakynthos, where we have long-standing connections. During that time I will be completely unreachable; I will probably not connect to the Internet at all.
  4. When I get back from holiday I've got less than a week for the final preparation of my next speaking gig: An Event Apart Boston, where I'm going to discuss the principles of unobtrusive JavaScript.
  5. When I get back home it'll almost be July, and I'll enter two endless conference-poor months. During that time I'll work on Project X (and no, I'm not going to give details right now; maybe later).
  6. Then, on 11 and 12 September, the conference I'm organising for Fronteers will take place in Amsterdam. Details will be announced in a month or so, and the conference will likely feature a few international JavaScript luminaries.
  7. As I said, two weeks later I'll fly to Boston once more for The Ajax Experience.
  8. Besides, I hope that I'll have time to visit d.construct 2008 (3-5 September) and @media Ajax (15-16 September), but I cannot yet absolutely guarantee my attendance.
  9. Finally, on 10 December I'll speak near Antwerpen at the annual conference of, the Flemish organisation of web companies.

All in all I have a busy conference schedule. I hope to meet some of my readers at one of them.

And it seems that both my American gigs this year are about two kilometers apart. My apologies to all Americans not living in Boston; maybe we'll see each other next year.

I'm pretty sure some people will trip over this:
