OpenJS World 2021 Schedule Announced!

Text "OpenJS World 2021 Virtual Experience, June 2, 2021" over geometric lines.

The OpenJS Foundation is excited to announce the full schedule for OpenJS World 2021, the Foundation’s annual global conference. On June 2, developers, software architects and engineers from all around the world as well as maintainers and community members from OpenJS Foundation hosted projects such as AMP, Fastify, Electron, and Node.js will tune in to network, learn and collaborate.

The conference will include inspiring keynotes, informative presentations, and hands-on workshops that are aimed to help the OpenJS community better understand the latest and greatest of JavaScript technologies.

This year’s event will be broadcasted on YouTube, where we invite attendees to watch live and engage with the community via Slack. This format will allow for an on demand, “Netflix style” experience with a specific premier time and flexibility for international audience viewing, as well as more discussion opportunities with speakers. We’ll kick off the day at 9:00 am PT with a keynote stream, with sessions premiering in tracked playlists after the keynotes finish. Tracks include Security, Development, Performance, Community Building, Automation / CI/CD, Testing and General.
