The JavaScript in South Africa conference

What to expect?

About the conference

Brilliant people

Surround yourself with some of the best that South Africa's web fraternity has to offer.

Unleash the best of new technologies

After getting insight into many of the new technologies, you'll be in a good position to leverage these in your next project.

Get your questions answered

Bring your questions and get them answered by peers face-to-face.

Network and mingle

This event will be a fantastic opportunity to make lasting contacts with potential new employees/co-founders/bosses

No longer the domain of script-kiddies and copy & pasters, JavaScript and the community around it has grown up to deliver full-stack solutions that rivals any other platform.
This event brings all the ideas and techniques required to deliver awesomeness together in one room and showcases the power and versatility of JavaScript.

JSinSA is a vendor-neutral conference, so if you're a Ruby, .NET, or Node developer, you'll be at home and surrounded by experts in each of those fields. It's the perfect opportunity to chat with peers in the field and exchange ideas and techniques to broaden your knowledge.

Who should attend?
Anyone keen to learn battle-tested techniques and to see emerging technologies.
