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!
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.
It’s still too early to announce the full lineup, but we’re happy to announce that Sarah Drasner, Tobias Koppers, and Matteo Collina are coming to give amazing talks among other 30+ speakers and more than 1000 attendees.
Are you ready for JS Nation 2020? Because we are!
