Javascript is taking over the world. From web to mobile and from client-side to server-side, you can build almost anything using javascript. This year is the first annual DeveloperWeek: Javascript Conference: a 3-day series of introductory and advanced workshops and industry talks about Javascript.

The JavaScript Conference content is geared to developers with experience in a previous programming language but little to no experience in full-stack JavaScript development. You should bring a laptop.
