JS Kongress 2020, April 15–16 | Scaling JS — Pushing the Limits: Massive Platforms, Data-Driven Architectures, and Modern APIs

🎉 JS Kongress is back in Munich from April 15th — 16th. 🙌 Today, we are pleased to announce the JS Kongress 2020 Call for Papers: Join us, and let’s watch out for solutions and best practices. The CfP is open until 2019–10–15.

The focus of JS Kongress 2020 is on Scaling JS — Pushing the Limits: Massive Platforms, Data-Driven Architectures, and Modern APIs.

The programming language JavaScript is more important than ever and is used everywhere, on servers and hardware, in native apps and games. With growth, the pain of scaling is added for every company and project. And scaling problems are hard problems.

We want to discover the various areas of scaling and explore questions and optimization in these areas:

  • how to optimize coding and architectures for scaling
  • how did JS Engines evolve, what’s the approach for performance optimizations in V8, SpiderMonkey, JavaScriptCore
  • how to scale massive frontends in React, Angular or Vue.js
  • how to improve Node.js performance
  • how to scale teams and work with hundreds of engineers
  • how to scale horizontally and how to use modern cloud infrastructures like Kubernetes for scaling
  • how to architect massive data-driven platforms in JavaScript
  • how to deal with enormous concurrency and increasing load on your Javascript services

Scaling affects everyone: frontend, backend, architects and teams. Join us for JS Kongress 2020, April 15–16 in Munich, and let’s watch out for solutions and best practices. Submit your ideas >>
