TXJS: Upcoming JS Conference in Austin

Category: Conferences


JSConf is around the corner, but there’s more 2010 conference action in the pipeline. Paul Irish pinged me about YayQuery’s TXJS and its all-star cast:

TXJS is a full-day conference hosted by yayQuery on June 5 in Austin, Texas. We just landed Douglas Crockford and John Resig as speakers, so what started as a regional conference has turned into sort of a big deal.

Besides Crockford and Resig, we’ve got Peter Higgins, project lead for the Dojo toolkit; Juriy Zaytsev (aka kangax) and Andrew Dupont from the Prototype library; Brian LeRoux of PhoneGap fame; Node.js contributor Tim Caswell; and many others. We’ll be announcing the venue in a few days.

After the talks, we have a hack night and party in downtown Austin, sponsored by Google and hosted by Austin JS.

They’ve kept the prices cheap at $69 for the day.

Well, it’s good to see that Texas hasn’t tried to replace Crockford with St. Thomas Aquinas.

They’ve also apparently filled up. Good for them, but bad for those who didn’t know about it until now.

The Waitlist for TXJS is open! Maybe we can sneak in a few. :)

Also the upcoming jQuery Conference in the Bay Area is coming up real soon
Tickets going fast there, too!
