Let's take a walk back in time to discover what could have been, the horrors that will be explored from other languages at that time.
I will construct a language on stage made from the best bits of the most popular languages of the time to see what could have been!

Yeah, yeah. I'm the Sammy Guy. I've spent a lot of time thinking about client side tooling and frameworks and building some sizable apps. I have come to the conclusion that they all suck. Maybe even one step further - frameworks in general are not always the correct solution for your problem. That doesn't, however, mean that they're irrelevant. It just means that its not so cut and dry, one is not really better than the other, they all present tradeoffs and all have their strong points. I'll talk in general about why you shouldn't use a client side framework like Sammy or Backbone or Sproutcore or Cappucino and also why you should. These sound like opposites and like I'll be doing a lot of contradicting myself, but thats the whole point! Don't believe the hype, know the facts about framework development and make your choice and stick to it.

This talk will introduce an effort of the chipcard industry to implement various aspects of payment technology, ranging from functionality of the cards themselves to mechanisms used to interact with cards for testing and injecting personal data. GlobalPlatform chose ECMAScript to enable chipcard personalization (http://www.globalplatform.org/sp...), providing interfaces to physically talk to the cards, access hardware security, crypto routines, etc.
I'll demonstrate an open source implementation based on Rhino, which will allow you, provided you have a card reader, to see what's actually stored on your credit card.
