    Douglas Crockford Talks About the Seif Project at OSCON 2015 in Amsterdam

    The web has grown to become a hugely important medium, but it has also become horrendously complex, which extends development schedules and promotes bug formation. The standards process cannot reduce the web’s complexity; it can only increase it. Making things worse, there are security vulnerabilities in the web that have been present since its creation, which become increasingly dangerous with time.

    This talk introduces Seif, an open source project that was started at PayPal, which has the goal of transitioning the web into an application delivery system that will be safer, easier to use, and easier to develop for.
