The OpenJS Foundation’s monthly AMA this time focused on OpenJS World and dug into some of the do’s and don’ts when submitting a talk. The deadline to submit is February 22, 2021. Moderated by members of the OpenJS World Program Committee, the AMA aimed to share insight into submitting talks and successfully presenting at OpenJS World. 

Participants included Rachel Romoff, Joe Sepi, Jory Burson, and Divy Tolia. People were able to ask questions via Twitter and live YouTube chat. Questions ranged from what OpenJS World means to the JavaScript community, to ways to get mentored before presenting an approved talk. Discussion outside of the Q&A focused mostly on the importance of participating in OpenJS World.
