Here's some general information about the event:
JSHeroes 2017 will take place on June 8th and 9th (Thursday and Friday) at Grand Hotel Italia in Cluj-Napoca. It is a one-track conference and we have rented the space from the hotel's ground floor, where there’s a spacious conference room and a large hallway and you can enjoy the technical booths and the conference registration.
If you're joining us from around Europe, your easiest option to get here fast is a WizzAir connection.
This also applies for travelling from within the country - Iasi. If you're from Bucharest, we recommend you take BlueAir - so that your seat will actually have some space for your legs. If you're joining from Timisoara or Budapest, the train is a comfortable (but quite expensive) option, but you can also drive here.
For travelling inside Cluj-Napoca, we definitely recommend Pony car sharing.
We also recommend finding an apartment through Airbnb or look for a hostel - but hurry, it's the Transilvania International Film Festival time and the accommodation can be harder to find, than usual. And this really homey hotel (called Biscuit) is also ideally located - close both to the conference venue and to the city center - and they offer a 10% discount for JSHeroes participants.
All talks are in English. We have no live streaming of the talks.
There is premium catering lunch on both days (vegan options available) and coffee breaks. We definitely don't want you to run around all hungry and decaffeinated, throughout the day, so the lunch and coffee breaks are included in the ticket price. For lunch, you can expect a healthy meal with various options. It includes vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.
You should have received your ticket in your email inbox. Please make sure you have your full name registered and that your ticket info is correct. You can also easily change your ticket details by accessing it directly from your email.
Make sure you plan some time for movies, since you'll be visiting Cluj-Napoca during the Transilvania International Film Festival (2-11 June). Check their movies and parties program and book your tickets in advance.
We send two Newsletters to each participant: this one, plus another - right before the event, to let everyone know of all registration details and other relevant information.
We post all the major updates on our Facebook page, but in all truthfulness, we love Twitter so much more. So maybe you can join us on both :p Use the hashtag #jsheroes to tweet about the conference, connect with other attendees and share your photos when the big days arrive. You can also check the Facebook event and Meetup to mark your attendance and see who else is attending.
OK, that's all, folks!
See you pretty soon! ;)
