JSNation to Be the Main Happening of the JavaScript Scene in 2020

JSNation Conference is coming back with a completely revamped edition in June 2020

If you were lucky enough to attend JSNation 2019, you know what to expect from our events: lots of renowned speakers, both inspirational and technical talks, amazing venue, countless networking opportunities, progressive art exhibition, and a JS-driven party. However, it’s not just that. The upcoming JSNation Conference is going to be the major event of the JavaScript Scene in 2020, something you can’t afford to miss out on.

For those of you who didn’t have a chance to attend the last year’s edition, here’s what you missed: an amazing historical venue in the heart of Amsterdam, three days of insightful talks and practical workshops branched out into general and Node.js tracks, more than 500 attendees from all corners of the world, JS-driven afterparty program of audiovisual acts powered by Node.js, WebGL, and WebAudioAPI.

The Zuiderkerk Church was taken by storm with the gripping keynote delivered by Kyle Simpson, the renowned author of You Don’t Know JS, and the atmosphere was pushed even further with one powerful talk after another: Henry Zhu discussed his arduous open source journey, Tobias Koppers explained the upcoming changes in Webpack, Andre Staltz live-coded functional lenses, Mat Groves showed his mastermind artsy creations with PixiJS and WebGL, and David Rousset from Microsoft played his own game on stage in VR.

There were many other insightful talks and conversations which can’t be covered in a two-paragraph wrap-up; however, trust us, it was a lot of fun. Don’t worry if you missed it, because JSNation is coming back!

Check out our new venue

Are you ready to spend another beautiful summer in Amsterdam? Are you ready to be inspired by the inexhaustible wells of knowledge of speakers, core maintainers of popular libraries, authors of books, famous podcasters, and other JavaScript celebrities?

The sacred gravitas and respectability of the previous venue will give way to the collaborative ambience that’s so integral to the event’s new venue, that is Kromhouthal. With the place being a little further away from the city’s downtown, you’ll get a chance to take a ferry to and from the venue and thus enjoy the stunning scenery on both banks of the IJ channel.

The industrial atmosphere, deep focus on JavaScript, with all talks revisiting and refashioning the old and new JavaScript technologies, an endless flow of productive conversations with the strategic insertion of brilliant ideas, the alchemical laboratory of JS musical and visual art, not to mention free drinks and a lot of fun – this is what we can guarantee 100%.
