JavaScript Conference in Svalbard

Speaker January 2016

I attended ArcticJS, the first JavaScript conference above the Arctic circle. Started as a pseudo-joke by some hackers travelling around Europe (in particular, @feross, @mafintosh, and @wa7son), this swiftly spiralled out of control, and 13 participants came to Svalbard to talk about JS and enjoy the long night.

I gave a talk about $ git yolo, just as I did at BrooklynJS in November. I also helped organize the conference, helping with logistics and so on. It was mad fun. (I am currently writing this from the northernmost church in the world, where I am watching a talk, actually.)
