JS Unconf

Side Project

For three years, from 2014 to 2016 I was a co-organizer of the JavaScript Unconference — JS Unconf in Hamburg. A (un)conference with ~400 attendees.

The JS Unconf is a non-profit unconference from the community for the community. There is no schedule or speaker list in advance. Everybody can apply with a talk. Everybody can vote for talks at the beginning of each day of the unconference. The talks which got the most votes from the attendees will be picked. This means the topic depend on the attendees as they provide and select the talks.

A big theme of the JS Unconf is inclusion and diversity. We kept the prices cheap to make it easier to attend. Over the years we extended a diversity program with free entry, travel and accommodation stipend for underrepresented groups in technology a lot. I’m very proud of that.
