OpenJS World Adds Day 2

By May 26, 2021Blog

Day 2 to include IBM Workshop and Speaker Q and A

The OpenJS Foundation is gearing up for its second annual OpenJS World, a free, virtual event that gathers developers, software architects and engineers from all around the world as well as maintainers and community members from OpenJS Foundation hosted projects such as AMP, Fastify, Electron, and Node.js. 

With so many interesting talks with subject matter experts from the field, as well as the IBM Day of Workshops, we have added a second day to OpenJS World. On day one, June 2, keynotes will premier at 9 am PDT, followed by the speaker tracks. Attendees can watch our on-demand sessions in any order they wish, and then on June 2 and 3, join the speakers for live Q&A sessions on Slack. Read on for the full schedule layout across June 2 and 3.

IBM Day of Workshops
On June 3 from 7 am PDT to 12 pm PDT, IBM will be hosting a day of workshops. This is a great opportunity to learn from experts who work on the Node.js platform and who build robust Node.js applications in the field.  Those interested in attending the IBM workshops can register here, as part of the OpenJS World registration. If you’ve already registered for OpenJS World, you can add the workshop by modifying your registration.

OpenJS World Happy Hour
Join us on June 2, from 12:30-1:30 PDT for an OpenJS World Happy Hour. While we may be hosting this event virtually, we still want to connect with the community, live, and celebrate our collective wins. Details for joining will be posted in Slack. 

Live Speaker Q and A: June 2 and 3
We are so excited to offer OpenJS World attendees the chance to chat with speakers via Slack. We encourage you to watch the speaker sessions, and then join the speakers on Slack to ask questions and discuss their talks in dedicated Q&A sessions on June 2 and 3, 2021. We have more than 80 speaker Q and A’s across global time zones scheduled and we hope you’ll join us!
