This is going to be a stand-out panel, I can feel it in my bones:
And check out who will be joining me on the panel:
- Sam Stephenson (Creator of Prototype)
- Alex Russell (Co-Creator of Dojo)
- Thomas Fuchs (Creator of Scriptaculous)
- Andrew Dupont (Contributor to Prototype)
This is going to be an advanced panel, tons of code, deep-and-dirty into the code and why we do what we do. So be sure to check us out – we’re going to be competing against the keynote talk on the final day: Room 9 – Tuesday, March 11th 2 to 3:00pm.
Browser Wars: Deja Vu All Over Again?
One of the top panels from last year, back again. Three of the major browser vendors will be up and discussing various aspects of browser development, standards, and all sorts of interesting topics. Be sure to stop by to get your dose browser craziness in: Room 10 Monday, March 10th, 2 to 3:00pm.
On the panel:
- Chris Wilson (Platform Architect, Microsoft)
- Brendan Eich (CTO, Mozilla)
- Charles McCathieNevile (Chief of Standards, Opera)
Birds of a Mozilla Feather
There’s also going to be a Birds of a Feather, held by Mozilla, on Monday, March 10th from 3:30 to 5:30pm (soon after the Browser Wars panel) at the Moonshine Bar and Grill. This is going to be a ton of fun, it’ll be a good time for chatting and talking about the future of Firefox and the web. You can expect to see the following people there:
- Christopher Beard (Head of Mozilla Labs)
- Aza Raskin (Mozilla Labs)
If you wanna catch up with me, be sure to do it before Tuesday as my flight is right after the panel. I’ll be spending plenty of time checking out the various parties, panels, etc. so you’re bound to see me around.
If you’re not already doing so you should follow me on Twitter as that’ll probably be the best source of determining where I am (and for pinging me if you want to meet up).
I’m so looking forward to being in Austin. Boston is expecting 3-5in of snow tonight. Sunny, warm, Texas can’t come soon enough.

I wish I could be there but I can’t. Will you be coming to web 2.0?
Session 1 sounds sharp and in-depth. Session 2 sounds fiery and controversial. Both should be fascinating. Good luck.

Wish I could make it too!

The link to your twitter page is wrong, you are not @home ^^

If only i lived in Boston.. any idea if the talks will be recorded and posted anywhere?
Justin Thorp (February 22, 2008 at 10:29 am)
John, I’ll see you in Austin.
John Resig (February 22, 2008 at 10:39 am)
@Olivier: Sigh. That’s what I get for posting at like 3 in the morning, I’ve fixed the link. Thanks!
@Matt H: I’m not sure. I know that, at least, some of them are – we’ll have to see if we’re honorable enough.
Andrew Dupont (February 22, 2008 at 12:32 pm)
@Matt H: All the talks will eventually be posted on the SXSW Podcasts page, but there’s no telling how long it will take. Starting immediately after the conference, they release 2-3 per week. They didn’t put up the audio for my panel last year until several months after.
Don’t worry, though. The slides will be up ASAP. You’ll get the meat of the panel without having to listen to me stutter.

Beginning to regret my slowness in pulling the trigger to making arrangements to get out there this year. This will be the first sxsw I’ll miss in years…
Jody Tate (February 22, 2008 at 1:53 pm)
Wow. This is like the Panel of the Century (if you’re into JS libraries). Really wish I was there for this.
Tim Kadlec (February 22, 2008 at 1:54 pm)
This is my first year at SXSW, and I am quite excited. Honestly, your panel has been one of my most anticipated since the panel picker first popped up months ago. Looking forward to it very much!

@Andrew & John: That’s great, thanks for the info. Look forward to viewing them.
