Why  JSNext Bulgaria

  • JavaScript is not jQuery any more
  • JSNext (aka JS version next ) Bulgaria is an event about cutting edge JS-related technologies


Event history:

After the few successful “Saturday” format events across different platforms and jQuery Bulgaria conference, the JavaScript event received major interest.

JSNext inherits jQuery Bulgaria conference, but JSNext Bulgaira is a new kind of event :
mainly targeting the latest and the future JavaScript technologies

Infragistics confirmed its support for the event: Thanks to Jason Beres: VP of Development Tools,  Product Management, Community and Evangelism @ Infragistics
Thanks to all community leaders who also confirmed their support!

We chose Sofia Event Center as the best location for this event.

All our speakers are also volunteers – they decided to cover their own expenses to be possible to avoid charging community members

There was one keynote session and one technical presentation from Infragistics Inc.:
