The Saturday Party

As always we’ll feature social events on all nights surrounding JSConf EU. Check the schedule overview for more info on the Friday and Sunday party. For the Saturday night event there are a few more things to say, though:

Right after the event, we’ll have a grand dinner at the conference venue. Really, everything all night will be in roughly the same space – so, no need to go back to your hotel, house, etc. as far as we are concerned.

At 9pm the real fun starts. We’ll move over to the Glashaus (which you’ll be familiar with because that is where our “Side Track” will have been all day).

No ticket to JSConf EU? You can still come!

You’ll find 3 rooms:

  1. A lounge. We’ll serve drinks here and will try to keep the music at a level where you can pleasantly talk to each other. Fingers crossed.
  2. The stage (behind the lounge)
  3. Our side track. We will use this as an overflow room and live stream the performances from the stage in case you’d like a little more space for yourself.
  4. [weather permitting] You can hang out outside.

We’ll serve a fine selection of non-alcoholic and light alcoholic beverages. Long-drinks are available for purchase. Knowing that, it might be a good time to re-familiarize yourself with our code of conduct.


9:00pm Nested Loops

The final talk of the day! Watch the nested loops team dive deep into how they made the 2015 JSConf EU intro.


We think we found the most JSConf EU compatible artist ever, check out LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER.

10:30pm to late DJs

Here late actually means about 2am, because we have another conference day to go to.

DJs: Conny, Moritz Esyot, Nikolai Nonsleep Spreng

VJs: Rachel White, Ruth & Sam from LiveJS

Festival Area

This year, for the first time ever, we have a Festival Area! We dedicated a part of our large and beautiful venue just to fun activities and short live demos that you can check out during breaks. You’ll be able to: meet the companies that support JSConf EU, chat with the people behind open source projects / community initiatives, be wooed by { live : JS }, see the JSConf swag getting printed, take selfies in our photo booth, play foosball, charge up your phones, grab a frozen yogurt and … sit on beanbags!

Supporting Companies: JSConf EU wouldn’t be possible without the support of great companies: our sponsors! Many of them will be available for chats and demos in our Festival Area.

Community Area: The JS community is awesome, and we’re proud to have some fantastic contributors and organizers as our guests. Come and meet them, get a demo, and learn how you can get involved too: Zach and Andy for NESpectre, Amelia for UX Night School, Julia & Finn for Nodeschool, Saskia for ClojureBridge, Yoshua for dat project, and Marjin for codemirror.

Fun Stuff: We got you covered. During breaks, you can meet the crew behind { live : JS }, hang out with LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER from our Saturday night party, and explore their audio/visual arts, learn from SDW printshop how the JSConf swag is printed, take selfies with friends in our photo booth, play foosball, or relax in a beanbag.

30 April 2017


We’re happy to be able to offer free, all-day childcare at the venue for children aged 3 and above. For parents with younger infants, we will provide a quiet room equipped with comfy seats, diapers and other essentials where you can retreat to throughout the day.

In order to use our child care services, we ask that you register a separate, free ticket below and let us know everything that is important to keep your child happy during the conference. Please note that places are limited and available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Accessibility at the event

We do our best to ensure that the conference, venue and events throughout the day are fully accessible, so that all attendees can wholly participate in and enjoy the conference. To do this, we work closely with venue and volunteer staff prior to and on the day of the event to ensure disability access to all areas.

Real-time transcription (CART)

As part of our commitment to accessibility, we’re providing real-time transcription (CART) at JSConf EU. There will be a live feed of every word of each talk. Transcription will be available through in-venue screens and via these URLs: Back track, Side track.

Scholarships for JSConf EU and CSSconf EU 2017

We are striving for the most diverse group of people possible — we firmly believe in equality, thus we invite everyone and anyone to participate. In order to make this possible, we are proud to announce our scholarship programme for people who would otherwise be unable to participate.

Our scholarship fund will support about sixty people to attend JSConf EU and/or CSSconf EU. Scholarships include a free ticket to the conference that will be awarded after an application process and lottery. Depending on the funds we can raise, we plan to also fully sponsor travel expenses and accommodation, if required.

Anyone from an underrepresented group in tech is invited to apply for this scholarship. This includes, but is not limited to: women, people of colour, LGBTQIA+ people, disabled people, and people facing economic or social hardships.

The application process is simple: Tell us about what you do with JS or CSS, and why you want to attend JSConf EU or CSSconf EU.

Apply now for the JSConf EU / CSSconf EU Scholarship

Scholarships are made possible by a joint effort of JSConf EU and CSSconf EU attendees and sponsors. Our attendees raised over 40,000 EUR for scholarship tickets to the conferences in 2015. We are very proud to be part of this community for showing their support of this initiative. Thank you!

And let’s do it again! You help is needed again this year. Talk to us if you’d like to get involved: [email protected].

Apply now for the JSConf EU / CSSconf EU Scholarship

Submissions are due end of day January 17, 2017 CET (i.e. Berlin time).
