Conference Handbook 2023

We had a blast in 2022 and were excited to see you all in person again. For 2023, we are happy to come back to the two-day event format that used to be our way to go in a pre-pandemic world.

Here you can find information about the event that will help you prepare for your trip and maximize your experience at JSHeroes. We’ve included details on the conference venue, agenda, and social events, as well as information on some of the initiatives we are taking to make the event accessible and comfortable for everyone.

Whether you’re attending JSHeroes for the first time or you’re a returning attendee, we hope this handbook will serve as a valuable resource for you.

📆 🌎 Date and Venue

JSHeroes 2023 will take place on May 18-19th (Thursday & Friday) at Grand Hotel Italia in Cluj-Napoca. It is a one-track conference and we have reserved the space from the hotel’s ground floor, a spacious conference room, and a large lobby, where you can enjoy the talks, the technical booths, and the networking area.

Also, during the coffee and lunch breaks, we will have multiple small stages, in some parts of the hallway, where everyone will be able to join, as a speaker or participant. We want to encourage open discussions, open-source projects presentations, lightning talks, and anything which is remotely related to what we do and our mission and values.

📒✨ Agenda and Theme

This year we want to shift our attention to the decade of progress in the world of web development. Back in 2013, we went through a period of rethinking practices as front-end development took off and became one of the most crucial disciplines in tech. Frameworks like: React, Angular, or Vue, and their ecosystems now enter into their second decade of existence, while web capabilities and standards are increasingly more potent and versatile.

So in 2023, let’s celebrate the past 10 years, reflecting on the evolution of our tools and patterns, with the good and the bad that comes with this rapid evolution.

Check out the agenda here. We’ll post all the talks, soon after the conference, on our YouTube channel. During the conference, we’re not going to live stream though.

♿ Accessibility

We are trying our best to make JSHeroes hassle-free for everyone. The venue is a 5-star hotel that is fully wheelchair accessible and all the activities are held on the ground floor.

Additionally, we will hand a set of accessibility guidelines to all our speakers to ensure that their talks and slide decks are inclusive in language and content.

🍎 Catering

There is a premium catering lunch and coffee breaks. We don’t want you to run around all hungry and decaffeinated throughout the day, so the lunch and coffee breaks are included in the ticket price. For lunch, you can expect a healthy meal with various options. It includes vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options.
