Technology changes fast. It’s easy for even me, a lifelong tech-enthusiast (rather than a professional developer), to see just how differently we use the web today compared to past decades or even last year. Ask the professional developers responsible for building on this always evolving infrastructure and the pace of change is only more apparent.
That’s why conferences like jsMobileConf are always a blast. It’s clear the attendees and speakers here have their fingers on the pulse of the tech industry, and there was a palpable buzz of excitement in the air as so many smart and enthusiastic people gathered to learn about the newest developments and how they can make the web better.
Held at the beautiful Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center in Boston, Massachusetts, jsMobileConf featured multiple pre-conference workshops, dozens of speakers, delicious food and great energy. An expo center with sponsor booths for Microsoft Azure (where you could test out HoloLens), nstudio.io, Moovweb and ProPlugins offered interesting opportunities to see how other companies are building the web (and of course grab free swag).
I attended the first day, which was chock-full of fascinating sessions. Here’s a quick sampling of the things I learned:
There were many other amazing sessions attended by myself and my colleagues, including on the future of mixed reality, the importance of developers knowing the entire process in fostering a DevOps culture, how we can use symbiotic computing to measure brainwaves and build adaptive interfaces that make people more productive, and much more.
And I haven’t even mentioned day two, which kicked off today with an inspirational talk by David Neal and has tons of exciting looking sessions about NativeScript tricks, Alexa skills, PWA development and more.
You can follow along with the fun with the jsMobileConf hashtag on Twitter.
Here are a few visual highlights:

This talk looked awesome—I'm sure everyone there for day two was feeling pumped this morning.

Best #jsMobileConf ever! #sugarRush for the afternoon tracks! pic.twitter.com/MOxkfU0wEg— Brian Jeffreys [Nativescript Dev] (@ProfessorrrX) November 13, 2019
Nothing like some sugar to keep you going. Candy on day two, and I can vouch for an amazing ice cream bar on day one (yes, the "real" food was also very good :)).
Hope to see you at jsMobileConf next year!
