JSConf 2015 — Three Talks I’m Psyched to Attend

Did I mention I’m going to JSConf this year? It starts tomorrow, so I maybe could have posted this sooner, but this is my first time going, and I’m stuck in an airport waiting for my flight’s crew, so let’s do this.

I’m one of those people that reads over the entire schedule before the conference and plans all the talks I plan on attending. This year, there are three talks that I consider can’t-miss. Here’s why:

Beyond Responsive: Building a mobile web you’re f*ing proud of

Responsive design is always an interesting topic, and that title just makes me want to drop everything and start building a better web. Kate Hudson promises us a talk that goes beyond the usual spiel about media queries; there’s all kinds of stuff in that pitch that makes my mouth water.

Async Programming in ES7

I’ve seen Jafar speak before, and it’s something to behold. If you’ve never heard of RxJS, you don’t know what you’re missing, and you have no idea what’s in store for you in this talk. Expect everything you know about promises to be questioned.

Zombies and Soup: Why End-to-End testing sucks (and why it doesn’t have to)

This one piqued my interest for a couple of reasons: First, I’ve heard a lot about Walmart Labs, but I’ve never seen someone like Dave Cadwallader speak. Second, end to end testing is an enormous pain, and I’m wondering how one of the world’s biggest retailers has approached it. This is definitely the Friday talk I’m most looking forward to.

If you’re hitting up JSConf this year, what are you looking forward to?
