nz.js(con); is New Zealand’s dedicated national JavaScript conference. It has an open CFP (call for papers – that means you can apply to speak), a low cost of entry, and broad variety of JavaScript related topics. It will be held on the 21st and 22nd of June 2021 in Wellington, New Zealand - at Shed 6 on the waterfront.

Please note this is an in person conference in New Zealand, and that due to the international travel situation we will only be accepting talks from New Zealand based speakers. We will be following government advice about gatherings.

CFP Description

We think New Zealand’s JavaScript community is diverse, forwards thinking, and varied; we want to to give you a chance to share your perspectives and experience with your fellow developers and the next generation of students.

The conference will have two tracks, which means we’ve got plenty of schedule slots available. We are keen to support both experienced and new speakers. If you’ve never spoken at a conference before we’ll be offering some support to make sure you have a good experience.

Need some help writing your proposal? Check out the resources at We Are All Awesome or drop into the #nzjscon channel on our Slack to get a second opinion or three!

Most talk slots will be 30 minutes long (25 mins of talk plus 5 minutes of questions) - let us know if you have a longer talk or a workshop in mind. We welcome both intro-level, intermediate and very technical talks. JavaScript has all kinds of uses, and we’d like the schedule to reflect that. Topics will include (but are not limited to):

  • Web development frameworks
  • Data visualisation
  • Node.js and other server-side technologies
  • TypeScript
  • Build tooling & pipelines
  • Cutting edge new web features
  • Programming culture
  • Mobile development
  • Testing
  • Security
  • Performance
  • Nodebots
  • Gaming
  • Teaching JavaScript
  • Career development
  • Project delivery
  • Something else we failed to capture here - you tell us!

Please note that nz.js(con); aims to be an inclusive and welcoming event. One step towards that goal is our Code of Conduct - all talk content will be required to adhere to that.
