Recap jQuery Europ 2013 – More than jQuery

According to Richard D. Worth (Director of the jQuery foundation) over 50 percentage of websites in general use the de-facto standard jQuery for JavaScript-development. So it’s no wonder that Europe’s first ever jQuery conference completely sold out. Host Haymo Meran of Gentics did more than just meeting the expectations of the attendees. The location itself – the historic Palais Liechtenstein in Vienna – proved to be worth the trip, even for longer journeys, and set an impressive stage – also thanks to the intensive snowfall.

But despite Vienna being a wonderful place to be, jQuery is the focus, as the event’s name tells – but not alone. The schedule showed a lot of variation, as well as featuring highly acclaimed speakers on an international level, reaching form accessibility to security, from code to inspiration. I had the honor to talk abut jQuery in terms of Machine to Machine communication (M2M) in a hopefully inspiring way (thanks to Daniel Koch for the nice German summery of my talk). The conference was accompanied by a barcamp, featuring even more sessions in a “meet the experts lounge”, where attendees could contribute, and enter the stage as speakers.

It was an outstanding event and incase you missed it, we can tell that chances are great to have a jQuery Europe again next year. I definitely hope so! Visit Developer Garden for the full recap, photos and further details (English and German).
