Yahoo! Front End Developer's Summit 2008 - Talk

I had the wonderful privilege of giving a keynote today at Yahoo!'s Frontend Summit. Douglas Crockford gives the one for tomorrow.

I took a stroll down memory lane talking about everything from slide rules to Wang Desktop Programmable Calculators to programming on the Macintosh 128k. In many ways this played off an earlier blog "All I reall need to know I learned from a Mac 128k".

Here are the slides:

A video will be available at the YUI Theatre later this month. I will post a link here when that happens.

Hey! Do you know if that will be up anywhere? Looks like a great talk.

Bill Scott said...

Yep. Keep checking the YUI Theatre (link in the post). It will probably take them a few weeks to get it on the site.

Thanks for coming to talk to us. It was great, as always, to see you and to hear about what's on your mind as you look at the world of web development. You're seriously missed over here at Yahoo.

It's always a treat to have you around. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts; I heard nothing but great feedback at the Summit about your talk.
