    My first public speaking!

    Monday and Tuesday have been very exciting for me!  Rumen already mentioned the DevReach conference: I was not only an attendee -- this was my first speaking experience!  My talk was about building and testing Atlas components, so that you actually get a chance succeeding at a large JavaScript development project.  Maybe I am getting a bit arogant when it comes down to client scripting, but I am starting to believe that after working for telerik for 2.5 years, I think I have seen it all.  We maintain a huge JavaScript code base and our only chance of keeping our sanity was to naturally move to writing...
