About OpenJS World 2021

OpenJS World 2021 is a truly unique JavaScript developer conference. It’s a free, virtual experience with keynotes premiering from the OpenJS Foundation YouTube Channel and sessions to be published immediately after.

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. The event will also feature additional engagement opportunities, such as Slack chats and live workshops, mixed throughout. 

We hope you’ll tune in!
