JSConf Downunder in SydneyBy Ben Schwarz
Anyone who has spent some time in the Australian web scene knows we have something very special, and we don’t want to spoil that. We are working hard to do our namesake all the credit it deserves, but with a very Australian flavour and not just a pretty logo. We feel we have also put together a pretty stellar lineup. This is the first time these speakers have spoken in Australia!
If that is not enough to convince you, well, we also have Alex Sexton coming down. If you are a web developer there is a 100% chance you have used a project this man has worked on – JQuery, modernizr, yepnope and the organiser of TXJS. He will be chatting to us about a very real problem in modern web applications, internationalisation.
Alex will be describing the current pains, and will be showing us a library he has written to solve the problem. If it is anything like his previous work, this library will be included on every website in the near future.
For the node developers out there, we are bringing you the current Node.js head honcho, Isaac Schlueter. You may know of a little application that he wrote, NPM. Curious why Node.js made a huge change to the core by introducing the readable stream interface, all while maintaining backwards compatibility of the platform? Well, we certainly have the talk for you!

Last, but certainly not least, we’ve also managed to pry a coupon code to get you the early bird pricing. Simply use the coupon code ‘sitepoint’. How cool is that?!
JSConf is on November 15th in sunny Sydney at the Town Hall.
