Developer Events in Fall 2017

I'm running a ton of events this Fall.

2017 has been very quiet for me on the speaking front, but, as it turns out, busier than ever on the event front. I am organizing a lot of events this Fall - online, in NYC and in Sofia, Bulgaria (with more in the works too). All of the events are either free or incredibly inexpensive. Here’s an overview:

JavaScript in 2017

Developing JavaScript in 2017

Online

August 23

Cost: Free

JavaScript development has seen a lot of changes in recent years, between new specifications like ES6 and ES7 to new tooling like TypeScript. This free event featuring Raymond Camden and TJ VanToll takes a look at some of these advancements and how developers can realistically start taking advantage of them today.

NativeScript Developer Day

NativeScript Developer Day

New York City

September 18-19

Cost: $100

NativeScript Developer Day is an annual event dedicated to the free and open-source NativeScript platform for building native mobile apps with JavaScript, TypeScript and/or Angular. Whether you’re a beginner curious about NativeScript or a seasoned mobile developer, NativeScript Developer Day has speakers and sessions for you.

Exploring JavaScript Frameworks

Exploring JavaScript Frameworks

Online

October 5

Cost: Free

It seems that there are few guarantees in life, but two of them are that the sun will rise in the morning and, with it, will come at least two new JavaScript frameworks. So how is a developer supposed to keep up? How can you tell the contenders from the pretenders? In this free online event, Jen Looper and Holly Schinsky will take a look at some of the more prominent new frameworks to help you decide if they are worth exploring further.

Going Serverless

Going Serverless

Online

October 20

Cost: Free

Lately the term serverless is everywhere, which naturally makes developers skeptical that it is a marketing buzzword. However, behind the term is a useful concept of tools and architecture that takes the need to worry about servers (if not actual servers themselves) out of the equation. In this free online event, Burke Holland and James Thomas will explore what serverless is, why it is an important new development, and where it will haev the most impact.

DevReach

DevReach

Sofia, Bulgaria

November 13-14

Cost: €120 (early bird price - ends 8/31)

DevReach was once one of the premier developer conference in Central and Eastern Europe, founded back in 2006. After a 3 year hiatus, DevReach is back!
