#DeepTrack

Deep-Track

Please find all session proposals and submit yours for the #DeepTrack in the repository collection on GitHub

This year we are making the JS Kongress again to the place for the JavaScript language interested people, the experts and core team members of different frameworks, tools, and engines to discuss JavaScript.

The overall idea is to have a creative space, to share ideas, work together, discuss and listen to others—face to face.

JS Kongress provides just enough structure to empower attendees to share their expertise. This gives our participants the opportunity to have an unfiltered exchange of innovative ideas. The DeepTrack is all about sharing knowledge, discussing and working on all kinds of topics around JavaScript (which includes the Future of JavaScript, WebAssembly, and Tooling as well as Microservices, Architectures, Event Sourcing, Stream-oriented architectures, Cloud Native Computing and API First) and having fun with like-minded people in a safe environment where YOU create the program!

Who is it for? What’s the plan?

We invite everyone who wants to contribute to join us for JS Kongress in Munich (2020, May 04-05). We plan to do a second track (besides the main track) in an unconference style with round tables and office hours (see conceptual explanation) on all kinds of topics around JavaScript.

Everyone can propose a topic related session whatever topic they’d like to discuss with other developers, experts, and users.

Who will join in 2019 for the #DeepTrack? (already confirmed)

How to contribute

Unlike traditional conferences (as it is on the main track), the schedule for the DeepTrack will be decided on and created by the participants. Before the conference days, everybody is invited to introduce their session on a GitHub repository that we will prepare. For submitting your contribution open a new issue at the JS Kongress Github Repository. The idea is to give an introduction to your topic, tell the people about what they can expect and have a place for communication about the topic before, during and after the conference.

Session format

We strive for interactive sessions. Contributions where you want to discuss, where you want to work with others together, where you want feedback for are gladly seen. The final format is depending on the contributors wish and the number of participants to the individual proposals. This could be a BarCamp / UnConference with a lot of participants or round tables and office hours with fewer participants.

A BarCamp – also called an UnConference – is an event without any previously fixed agenda. All the participants meet in the morning and decide about the schedule for the day. Everyone can offer a session – from a short hands-on workshop to moderating a discussion. The goal is to make everything as participative as possible. Read more about BarCamp on Wikipedia.

The topics of 2017’s DeepTrack can be used for orientation:

On the GitHub repo JS Kongress Munich DeepTrack, you can find more topics from 2017 and 2019 as well as participants from previous editions.

Note: This is not a CFP, everybody from the community who owns a ticket has the opportunity to contribute to the DeepTrack.

Location

On both days of the JS Kongress, we have reserved the west part of the Alte Kongresshalle, the so-called flat construction. There we have different rooms with different capacities. Based on the number of interests and participants the format and rooms will be assigned.


Conceptual explanation

For a common understanding of the topics “Unconference”, “Round Tables”, “Office hours”

BarCamp / Unconference

An unconference is a participant-driven meeting. The agenda is created by the attendees at the beginning of the meeting. Anyone who wants to initiate a discussion on a topic can claim a time and a space. Unconferences typically feature open discussions rather than having a single speaker at the front of the room giving a talk, although any format is permitted. The participants pitch their topic ideas and define the schedule based on their interests. A facilitator will guide through the whole process.
Here’s a Video which describes an UnConference pretty good:

Round Tables

A round table is a form of academic discussion. Participants agree on a specific topic to discuss and debate. It’s common to define timeboxes for that. Each person is given equal right to participate, as illustrated by the idea of a circular layout referred to in the term round table.

Office Hours

At Office Hours you’ll find experts and speakers ready to chat, help you with projects and answer questions. This is a timeboxed format. E.g. 1h per speaker/expert.
