Conference: ScotlandJS 2015


I just finished ScotlandJS, a two-day conference full of talks about JavaScript and frontend technologies. I'm very satisfied with the overall level of talks and number of ideas I got there. Here are some things I found worth noting down. As always, written in hopes that I'll encourage others to attend more events like that.

Finally, there was a closing keynote about diversity in tech that I found valuable. The fact that the tech scene is demographically monolithic, and at times very unfriendly to women and other underrepresented groups is quite well documented, but the speaker also touched on a few other issues.

The talk (and a positive response from the audience) gave me much respect for the British frontend scene, especially compared to the Polish one (post in Polish, and a somewhat unpleasant reading).

That's all I have - I hope you enjoyed my writeup!
