We are proud to announce that Kevin Dangoor who started the CommonJS project will speak at JSConf.eu about:
Thanks to a powerful standard library and a common module system, sophisticated applications can be written in Python and run unchanged on Windows, Mac and Linux and even across different interpreters including Jython and IronPython.
In this talk, I'll provide quick background on the project and demos of several implementations of the emerging standard, including how CommonJS impacts Mozilla's Jetpack and Bespin projects.
Kevin has been a "software product guy" for more than 20 years. Though he's worked with many languages in many environments, he is best known for his Python work as the founder of the TurboGears web framework and Paver project scripting tool. He has spoken at numerous conferences and is a co-author of Rapid Web Applications with TurboGears. Most recently, he works at Mozilla Labs where he works on the Bespin in-browser developer tool project and started the CommonJS project. He lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan and recently has help start the a2 web developer interest group.
