Ubilabs Web Developer Robert Katzki organizes JS Unconf, April 26th-27th

The JavaScript Unconference will be a whole weekend full of talks about JavaScript. The goal is to showcase projects covering various Javascript topics and to inspire and surprise the attendees by the possibilities of the JavaScript world. It is “an affordable conference for JavaScript novices and experts alike”, explains Robert Katzki. The all-round insight into the various concepts offers the ideal introduction to professional development. As this is an unconference, there won’t be a schedule or speaker list in advance. The audience is asked to propose talks and also votes for the talks. In this way the format creates a space for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creativity.

The JS Unconf will start on Saturday, the 26th of April in the Geomatikum, Hamburg.
