Why's it on a Saturday?

One thing we've noticed, is that a lot of people shy away from conferences held during the week. We're guessing it's for 2 reasons:

  1. - loss of earnings as you can't bill if you're not helping your customer

  2. - too many attendees who just want to get out of work

Well, we've think we have nailed it by chosing a Saturday.

Who's going to be there?

Hopefully you, and about 40 other developers from South Africa. Our attendee cap of 40 is so we can keep things really personal and to give everyone an opportunity to rub shoulders with the brightest JS minds in the country.

We are planning on having startup founders; company CEO; directors and everything in between.

What's the conference about?

For years, Javascript has had a bad rap as a toy language. A language professional developers probably wouldn't bother putting on their CVs.

With the introduction of several frameworks and additional uses for Javascript, the developer community has taken notice and the power that Javascript has always had, is starting to take centre stage.

Attending this conference, will show you the full extent of javascript and give you the tools and information you need to unleash the full power of the language on your next or current web project.


The cost per attendee is R 750 ex VAT. This includes the following:
- coffee, snacks, colddrinks
- lunch
- welcome pack
- prizes
- 10 hours of conference time and great networking opportunities

Remember, this is a professional conference and not a user group or a vendor marketing opportunity! It's good solid technical content.
