Our JSConf.Asia schedule is now live and every time I look at it I can't stop smiling. This is gonna be such a sweet nerd-fest of amazingly creative, talented and accomplished people. The arts meets engineering, education sprinkled with entertainment. From experience reports to visionary ideas, from hard security problems to insecurity in web developers. The latter talk hosted by one of my favourites and most well known web evangelists out there: Chris Heilmann. It's gonna be a good one.
We're going to bump up the ticket price a bit more on November 1st in case we'll have anything left by then. Get yours here. For Singapore first-timers, we have put together a little arrival guide on our DevFest.Asia website.
So excited! See you soon! :)
