The WSG and Web Directions are very proud to present Jeremy Keith, this Thursday evening in Melbourne. Jeremy is in Australia for the WD06 conference, and is only in Melbourne for a few days. He has kindly agreed to give a presentation entitled The Joy of API.

If you didn't get the chance to go to Sydney for the conference, now is your chance to see one of the Web's most influential thinkers (and most engaging public speakers) talk in Melbourne -- for free!

Jeremy Keith
Jeremy Keith is a web developer with the web consultancy firm Clearleft in Brighton, England where he enjoys building accessible, elegant websites using the troika of web standards: XHTML, CSS and the DOM. His online home is adactio.com.

Jeremy is a member of the Web Standards Project where he serves as joint leader of the DOM Scripting Task Force. He wrote the book DOM Scripting: Web Design with JavaScript and the Document Object Model.

Meeting Time
Please ensure you arrive well before the presentation begins. The door will be locked to the public by 7pm so it is important you arrive on time. Besides, how could you pass up free pizza?

For catering purposes, please register for this event via the Melbourne WSG online calendar. Click on the event and select the "Register for this event" link, where you will be asked to enter your name and an email address.

If you experience difficulties with this process, you can also RSVP by sending an email to melbourne AT webstandardsgroup DOT org. Your RSVP is appreciated, especially for popular presenters as room space may be limited.

There is no cost to attend. No, really! Food and beverages are kindly being made available thanks to SitePoint. SitePoint is a Melbourne-based company who, when not handing out free pizza, publish articles and books on best practice web development, with a focus on web standards. Their discussion forums are also home to the web's most active web development community, so I encourage you to check them out at www.sitepoint.com if you haven't already.

Also many thanks to Web Directions for bringing Jeremy out to Australia.

This event will be followed by Port80.
