If you spend any time around me at all, you will quickly realize I enjoy talking. Once you know that, its not too surprising to find out I also enjoy speaking to audiences large and small. I feel the audience gets the most benefit when I am talking about topics I am passionate about, including jQuery, Amplify JS, and Design.

Over the past few years I have had the pleasure of presenting at a number of conferences across America and even one in Oxford, UK:

If you are interested in having me speak at your conference, please drop me a line.


Here are a few reviews from people who have attended my talks:

Just awesome! One of the best presentations at jqcon. Excellent delivery, pacing and code samples. Some great ideas that I will most certainly use. — Bob Moore

Doug theme-rolled the conference with this talk. They should give this guy a whole day. Super useful, well presented, funny and engaging. — lewsid

Clear, practical, and applicable. Most useful presentation of the weekend! I’ve already rewritten a very complex UI using the material presented. — tom

Doug is always a brilliant presenter. Speaks loud and clearly while delivering invaluable information. As he mentioned his goal for his talks is that we leave knowing there is something in our code we can change, he certainly helped me attain that as I am excited to implement new techniques I have learned. Thanks Doug! — Ryan Olson



The following video is from Front End Design Conference 2011 in St. Petersburg, Florida. I was speaking on jQuery Nuts, Bolts and Bling. The slides are available on Speaker Deck, and the code is available on Github.
