Front-End Development, Conferences

O'Reilly's Fluent Conference gives developers working with JavaScript, HTML5 and other Web technologies a place to gather and learn from each other. As the Web has become a cornerstone for all kinds of development, there's a lot of new information to wrap your head around. The best way to learn is to spend time with people who are actually working with technologies like JavaScript and HTML5, inventing ways to apply their power, scalability, and platform independence to new products and services.

Fluent Conference provides a variety of forums for learning, from workshops and sessions with experts to the "hallway track" between sessions, where attendees informally connect and share questions, knowledge, and perspectives with their peers.

The whole event included multiple performances. About 4-5 at a time, so every person had to pick the ones that interested him the most. Some were really interesting, some - absolutely lame, where a speaker just kept reading from the laptop without any emotions. More reminded me of a university times. But of course most performances were really great and interesting. On the next slider you can see an "Unreal Tournament" in a browser that is using nothing more than a JS libraries.

In general conferences included all kind of topics - front end development, css styles, web browser version support, modern technologies, JS libraries, Node JS, Backbone, Angular and technical stuff like what kind of images on your browser uses more power and empties your batterie. (by the way it turned out that JPEG files are the most efficient).

And here is our Geta team. This was a great conference and the most important thing is that we were able not only to listen to the performances but also have a discussion with the speakers after presentations, ask them many different questions etc.
