JavaScript is the language that powers the internet. It consistently tops lists of the most popular and widely used programming languages. At the same time, JavaScript support for internationalization is still in its infancy.

Shane Carr is convener of ECMA 402, the standards body tasked with building a great i18n support for JavaScript. Shane will present on the latest i18n features in JavaScript, as well as the vision for how we can empower JavaScript developers to make great apps for global audiences.
