GOTO Aarhus is the place for the new tricks in town:

Gilad Bracha and Lars Bak announced Dart in Aarhus, Denmark about a year ago as a “new programming language for structured web programming”. Yesterday, Anders Hejlsberg, once again in Aarhus, Denmark, announced Microsoft’s new programming language, TypeScript, “a language for application-scale JavaScript development”. Obviously, there’s something about the water in Aarhus that causes language designers to want to tackle the problem of large scale web development.

Now GOTO is not for script-kiddies or #programming for dummies” – it is applied computer science. Formerly the original name was JAOO being “Java Object Oriented” – but now the topics are more various, but still cutting edge. TypeScript has made headlines in both http://arstechnica.com and http://www.readwriteweb.com.
