Yay, we are now at JSConf.eu 2010.
The Speakers of 2009
Full Frontal is really close to selling out, and I wanted to make a deal with you: if we sell out, Left Logic (my company, consisting of just me) promises to buy everyone a drink at the after party to kick off a great evening.
So if you're someone who's been thinking about coming along, or you know someone, this is the week to get your ticket.
The lineup consists of great topics by awesome speakers Christian Heilmann, Robert Nyman, PPK, Stuart Langridge, Todd Kloots, Jake Archibald and Simon Willison. The full schedule and abstracts are available on the web site: http://2009.full-frontal.org
Like I said, we're *really close* to selling out, so make your move now to get those last few tickets and the drinks are on me :)
Thanks Remy, this sounds like a great deal! See you all in Brighton!

True story, when Holger, Malte and Jan were doing their weekly Skype call last week and looked at the pre-final schedule for JSConf.eu, they could hardly contain their excitement. Think about three boys getting the Lego pirate ship, space station and all the city gear for christmas :)
We're proud too have such a great line-up, we're happy this all worked out so far and we're glad all the speakers take the time and head to Berlin just for our little conference.
THIS IS GONNA BE FREAKING AWESOME!
See you in 3 days in Berlin!
Unless our sched.org-integration isn't finished yet -- the API-key generation took somehow longer than expected -- you will find our tight-packed schedule with 25+ awesome talks HERE.
Be prepared for a marathon of two days of inspiring action, plenty of room for the social-thing, some fine-food & two parties for all of us.
We try to make JSConf.eu as much of a community event as a technology event. As we announced earlier there is going to be a big party on Saturday night. Besides this main event we'll have two more chances to meetup and enjoy berlin at night.
On Friday there is going to be a pre-conference meetup at Bier Kombinat Kreuzberg. (There is a link to the place's website on the Google Map. Seriously, don't click on it :) The meetup starts at 20:30 (8:30 pm). We (as in the organizers) are trying to be there as well depending on the progress on getting things fixed up for the conference.
On Sunday we'll have a post conference party right at the JSConf.eu venue sponsored by SinnerSchrader (The company that employs two of the organizers and that did all the pre-financing for the conference). We'll have music, fancy visuals and, of course, beer :)
Hope to see all of you there!
We've been talking about the conference party on and off for a while now. Today, we have some details for you.
After a long search for the best location, we finally settled on the Home Base Berlin for so many reasons that it doesn't make sense to list them all. It's in central Berlin, it is great and we're gonna rock that house!
- November 7th, 21:00, Home Base Berlin.
- Free entry if you have a JSConf.eu ticket, 11,90€ otherwise. Register here.
- EVERYBODY IS INVITED!
The last point is important. While our party is the pivotal point for JSConf.eu where all the attendees & speakers can mingle, drink, chat and have fun, we don't want it to be an exclusive club.
We are inviting the Berlin tech scene to join us at the Home Base Berlin to celebrate not only a great conference and our amazing group of speakers, but also Berlin itself as the perfect location for a thriving, innovative and most of all fun place to work and live. Let's show our international guests how Berlin knows to party!
The course website has all the information you might need to get going. Seating is limited. Hope to see you there!
Their mission: Providing tools for the realtime web. Their dedication: Simple, flexible and fast user interfaces and development tools. Their latest commitment: To support JSConf.eu in Berlin. This is why we're proud to present Ajax.org as our advanced silver sponsor!
Ajax.org platform is an open source project based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. They noticed that web trends and technologies today are converging to do one thing particularly well: collaborate. Ajax.org Platform combines technology and open standards into a solution to build web applications with rich collaborative features at minimum expense. It's aimed at developers for building applications that run in web browsers, but with all the good parts of desktop applications.
We're happy to welcome Ajax.org as sponsor but are also looking forward to Mike de Boer, Open Source Evangelist, and Ruben Daniels, Lead Developer of Ajax.org, as part of the programme presenting Building collaborative applications with Ajax.org Platform.
We're completely sold out now. There might be some people who purchased a ticket but cannot attend. Write an email to email@example.com to be placed on the wait list. Kind words on why you have to be there, might help :)
We recently wrote a post with some basic info for attendees about JSConf.eu including hotels, times and parties. Some people seem to have missed this post in the overall buzz.
The speakers page is now updated with all the speakers that have been announced to date. The list is already quite awesome and there are even more to come!
The last 25 tickets went away in no time. Looking forward to November, 7th!
As promised, we have now 25 additional tickets for sale. We expect them to go fast, so get them while they are hot.
We're still shaping JSConf.eu and we don't yet know all the details, but we thought it'd be a good idea to give you an overview and summary of what we have planned for you:
Here is a preliminary list of speakers. We'll be announcing more as they come in:
We'll open breakfast at 08:30 on both days, but don't rush too fast (especially on the after-party morning) because the programme starts at 09:30 on Saturday and 09:45 on Sunday. Expect Bacon.
Both days run until around 19:00 (expect some overtime) when we'll give you a chance to check out a bit of Berlin, but not for too long! On 21:00 we'll follow up with a post-conference party each day.
Track B, The Underground Track
The Saturday party will be pivotal to JSConf.eu as we'll invite Berlin locals that couldn't make it to JSConf.eu to meet, greet & drink with the speakers & attendees. Details on both parties are not fixed yet, but we'll post them here as soon as possible.
It might sound like a good idea to travel back home on Sunday night, but you'll be missing another farewell get-together. Besides, despite what your boss thinks, we hope to have blown your mind over the JSConf.eu weekend that you probably don't want to work on Monday anyway, so why the rush? :)
Our speaker hotel is the lovely Hotel New Berlin. In addition we have reserved a small contingent of rooms for participants as well. If you're booking with the code JSCONF, you'll get a special rate until October 9. It is valid for three nights on the 6th, 7th & 8th of November.
The Google maps search for hotels close to the venue gives you some more options ranging from high-class to backpacker-hostel.
JSConf.eu was sold out last week. We promised to get back to you this week to tell you if we can release more tickets. We worked out a plan with our venue, the ÏMA Design Village, that fits our budget that allows us to release another 25 tickets to the public.
To make sure everybody gets a fair chance at grabbing one, we're now announcing that we'll open the ticket sales for the final 25 JSConf.eu tickets on Thursday, October 1st, 17:00 CEST (GMT +2).
Be sure to be set and ready to go on Thursday. We expect the remaining tickets to sell out fairly quick.
Watch this space and our @jsconfeu twitter account.
UPDATE: We released 25 more tickets.
first of all we are happy that all tickets that were planned to be sold have now been sold. Our goal for JSConf.eu is to make it as intense and focused as we experienced it at the US event earlier this year. We thus planned to keep the conference at a similar size.
However, the final 30 tickets have been sold surprisingly fast and so we decided to try to make room for a few more people (the final number will be between 10 and 30).
The plans are not finalized yet. Expect the announcement around the start of next week. Be sure to follow us on twitter to hear about the new tickets as soon as possible.
Due to the large number of very high quality proposals we decided to prepone the deadline of our call for speakers. The new deadline for proposals for track A is September 6th, 2009.
Make sure you submit your proposal in time.
Our call for speakers is ending September 13th, so make sure you have your submissions in by then.
We already received an astounding number of very high quality submissions. You guys and girls are just awesome!
Here are some of the proposed topics:
- Narwhal JS and the Future of Server JS
- ARIA enabled jQuery Widgets
- Joyent Smart Platform (SSJS Cloud Platform)
- jQuery UI, jQuery validation plugin
- Solving Cross-Domain Issues When Building Mashups
- Building Information Visualization Ajax Applications
- to dom or not to dom - that's the question
- Writing apps on the edge with CouchDB
- Client-server state synchronization using JSON
- Web App Development through APIs and Shared Templates
- Better UI architecture
- One Event Loop to Rule Them All
We'd also like to remind you that we are still selling early bird tickets. Make sure to get your's before they run out.
Mark November 7th/8th in your calendar, we'll be presenting top speakers in the field and a relaxing atmosphere in Berlin, Germany's pulsing capital. Join us for a two-day, community-focussed indie conference with top technical content around your favourite language and great opportunities to meet like-minded people.

We'll be announcing more great speakers in the coming weeks.
We're concerned about diversity in our industry and would like to encourage more women to do talks.
If you are interested in presenting at JSConf.eu or if you want to recommend somebody please let us know!
