With public gatherings being withheld in early 2020, we're seeing more and more conferences going 100% virtual so that you can still enjoy them and learn while staying safe.
We at Jscrambler know first-hand how valuable these conferences can be for developers, so we definitely recommend attending some of the ones on this list.
The world's original Angular conference, ng-conf returns in Spring 2020 with the theme "Hardwired". Some of the most notable members of the Angular community (like John Papa and Dan Wahlin) will be doing workshops and giving keynotes.
In 2020, ng-conf is going 100% online.
React Europe has grown into one of the biggest developer conferences of the old continent.
In the past, it was the stage where technologies such as GraphQL and Redux were first announced and demonstrated. In 2020, it will host hackathons, bar nights,
over 30 talks and 12 lightning talks.
A gathering of the "forward thinkers of the Web", this event happens twice a year — one in Ottawa and the other in San Francisco.
This year, both events will instead happen only virtually, with organizers deciding to grant free access to four days of workshops and all talks.
The event features two parallel tracks, one more aimed at beginners and the other for experienced developers.
Sunny Barcelona is the meeting place of over 1200 developers from across the globe, all with a problem-solving attitude and yearning to learn from the challenges of different teams.
Attendees from past editions praise the professionally organized event, the light and open atmosphere, and the diverse range of speakers.
JSConf Budapest — At the heart of one of the most vibrant capitals in Europe, this conference is all about diversity, mentorship, and learning. The venue is located right at the center of the city and is literally under a pool of water!
JSConf Asia — Southeast Asia's largest web developer conference, JSConf Asia celebrates the creative and diligent work of the web development community in Southeast-Asia.
Definitely consider attending this conference for a highly educational, inspiring, and entertaining event.
JSConf US — "Two days of talks, one day of adventure". This is how this conference describes itself, and it lives up to the hype.
This 11-year-old conference helps developers learn how to push the language beyond the confines of the browser and into robots, and video games. But what also sets JSConf US apart is the "choose your own adventure" program, where you can go on an adventure like kayaking or a safari.
React Native EU
Many developers agree that React Native is still the number one choice for JS developers when it comes to cross-platform apps. If you also agree, then React Native EU may be an excellent pick.
With exciting keynotes, lots of lightning talks and networking events, this conference will provide two days packed with activities for its 400+ attendees.
After a first day dedicated to this topic of Enterprise JS, there's a second day dedicated to discussing advanced Web concepts.
Going from learning mode to party mode, the conference also provides JS-driven art exhibitions and audiovisual performances. To finish the event, attendees gather one last time for a picnic.
Right in downtown Toronto, this conference celebrates another gathering of Vue.js developers in North America. Typically, VueConf TO brings to stage Vue core team members like Evan You.
You can expect very technical talks focusing on new Vue features and development best practices.
If you decide to attend this "Technology Woodstock", you can expect a hyper-focused conference which dives into JS but also HTML, CSS, software architecture, and all things Web.
The largest Angular conference returns in late 2020 as the meeting spot of choice for Angular devs, tech companies, and core members of the Angular framework.
The conference starts with one day of workshops, which is followed by the two-day conference.
All roads lead to Ireland in November, when the Node community joins in the beautiful medieval town of Kilkenny.
The conference is usually packed with high-quality talks and workshops from some of the most active members of the Node community. In 2019, some of Jscrambler's own devs attended and praised the event for being great for networking.
A chill atmosphere where you get to hear from and meet some of the brightest minds in the JS ecosystem — that's how some past attendees describe dotJS.
The event also hosts some of the biggest companies in tech, so you'll also find plenty of room for some good ol' networking.
As we mentioned before, the early 2020 pandemic and concerns for attendees' health has prompted many of these conference organizers to cancel or postpone their 2020 events.
