Upfront, we have asked her a couple of questions:

Why are you looking forward to #jskongress?

I am attending the JSKongress since the very first time and I am enjoying it since then every year. It’s a well organized and caring conference with great talks πŸ’œ

What do you think about or associate with the 2020 motto β€œScaling JSβ€Šβ€”β€ŠPushing the Limits: Massive Platforms, Data-Driven Architectures, and Modern APIs”?

The JavaScript Community is a very fast-growing community. It feels like every day a new framework is born and we have to adapt new paradigms or going back to old ones. With every app we’re developing we’re facing the same problem: β€œDoes it scale?” It will be interesting to see, how other developers pushing the limits of scalability.

What’s your vision for the program?

I hope that the JSKongress will receive a variety of topics from different perspectives which fits the motto. Hopefully, we will see some first-time speakers πŸ’œ

Do you remember, when you got in touch with JS for the very first time? What was the reason for it, or who?

I think the very first time was on myspace, where I didn’t know what I was doing. It was a visitor counter (or something similar) with a lot of bling bling (you know how the good old myspace days where). Afterwards, I got in touch with the folks of the OpenTechSchool in Dortmund and get in touch with JavaScript. Since then I am stuck on it πŸ˜…

Do you have some motivation for all speakers and everyone who thinks about submitting their idea for a talk?

Just go for it. No one will bite you, no one will blame you πŸ€— The people will attend your talk because they think it’s an interesting topic and they would like to listen to you.

The Call for Papers of #jskongress 2020 is open until October 15β€Šβ€”β€Šwe are looking forward to reading your ideas on
