What to Expect

HalfStack events are fun, creative single track JavaScript events hosted in relaxed environments. HalfStack provides authentic, high value experiences for all attendees.

The priority for HalfStack is the attendee experience, with great food, drinks, talks, swag, and community. Hosted by London’s longest-lived JavaScript meetup group, HalfStack now runs events in Belgrade, Charlotte, London, Newquay, New York, Phoenix, Tel Aviv, and Vienna!

HalfStack carefully curates talks that inspire and inform the audience in a highly interactive and entertaining manner. Each HalfStack event provides an intimate feeling where each attendee has time to meet one another.

    Let’s talk about… joining a cult (or side projects, and how to do them right)

    HalfStack provides the ultimate showcase for side projects, so let’s talk about… joining a cult (or side projects, and how to do them right). We'll cover the 13 principles of the Cult of Done manifesto, written by Bre Pettis and Kio Stark, and how to practically apply them in software engineering and other creative endeavours!

    Afterparty (JS Pub Quiz and more)

    We will kick off the afterparty with Battledecks, a tech improv game. You have 5 minutes to pitch a fake tech startup from a randomly generated slide deck. Then we'll proceed in teams with our unique JS Pub Quiz! If there's interest, we'll conclude with karaoke.
