We are pleased to declare that Jason O’Neil will be a speaker for the wwx2013.

Jason O’Neil is a designer, hacker and developer from Perth, Western Australia. Making his first website at age 11, he loved it and went on to study Multimedia Design. Coming from ActionScript, PHP and Javascript, he discovered Haxe in 2009 and knew it was going to be big. Now he works as Lead Developer with Sheridan Research Institute, using Haxe to develop innovative apps and content for the education sector.

His talk’s title for the wwx2013 is “Web Apps in Haxe (an idea whose time has come)” and you’ll find below a short description.

If you’ve spent any time with Haxe, you know that it’s powerful, especially in its native environment: gaming. But what about using Haxe for websites and web apps? Is it production ready? What does a full stack Haxe web app look like? What are the advantages with using Haxe over Rails or Django? What are the challenges?

In this talk we’ll look at a recent web app we’ve made, share our experience, the lessons we’ve learned and some of the tools and libraries available to you when writing web apps. And then, to prove that Haxe is ready for the prime-time in developing full scale web apps, we’ll quickly create a demo app so that you can see how it all fits together.

The speakers’ list is available on the wwx2013 website, and the content of their speeches will be announced soon.
