    I am particularly intrigued by the sound of Allen Wirfs-Brock’s ECMAScript 6 talk. How might we make a “better” JavaScript?

  • Would love to see Ryan Seddon’s talk on web components, having proper control libraries would be amazing.

  • For me it would be Rob Manson

  • I’d love to see Ben Schwarz talk about CSS Variables. :)

  • jokeyrhyme

    Tough call, but I think Alex Feyerke’s “Offline First” talk has my interest most roused. That said, all the talks look amazing. It’d be very neat to win tickets!

    Allen Wirfs-Brock on ECMAScript 6

  • Tze Ken Lee

    Fiona Chan on Css Selectors for me.

  • Gabriel Mérida

    I’d love to see Ben Birch talking about new data structures of Javascript. Loved this intro: “He’s spent the first 10 years writing JavaScript frameworks, and is now trying to undo all the damage he’s done.” Thank you from Chile!

  • Naveed Aslam Sialkoti

    I love information technology, computers. If you can create technology, you can change the world. In this era there is only 2 options, affect the world or affected by the world.

  • Sergey Kochergan

    Robert Kieffer – Node.js evangelist from Facebook

  • Mark Kroh

    Paul Theriault’s Taking Front-End Security Seriously. One area that I think most of us can probably do better on.

  • Paul Binns

    I would really enjoy listening to Mark Dalgleish talking about everything ‘this’

  • Michael Chau

    Ben Schwarz on CSS variables

  • Janaka Bandara Nawarathne

    Allen Wirfs-Brock, ECMAScript 6. Because this might be main entity that future of the web depends, it may change the way we are devolving the web and make our mind to re-create the all the framework again. So will never miss this if I have a chance….

  • I’d love to hear Alex Feyerke talk about building Offline First. I’m really interested in how offline capabilities and related technologies are going to improve the web.

  • David Lanaway

    Paul Theriault would be my pick.

  • Real keen to see Ryan Seddon’s talk!

  • John Lombardo

    I’d love to see if Rod Vagg can make me want to use ES6 generators! It’s possibly the only part of Allen Wirfs-Brock’s ES6 talk that will need some backing up.

  • Josh Moncrieff

    Barbara Bermes

  • Davincho

    Rob Manson would be my favourite talk.

  • I would be excited to hear Paul Theriault bring some words on often ignored front end security. However, a VERY close second would be Barbra Bermes’ talk on the bane of third party code.
