Hello #JSHeroes, and welcome on board
@JSHeroes 2017 โœจ๐Ÿš€โœจโœจ

This conference is a not-for-profit community event run by a team of volunteers from the Cluj Javascripters community. 2017 is the first year when this amazing conference is taking place. Itโ€™s one of our dreams and the highpoint of our active community. Weโ€™re a bit crazy but at the end of the day, itโ€™s all worth it :)

Here's some general information about the event:

Date & Venue ๐Ÿ—“๏ธ๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ

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 thereโ€™s a spacious conference room and a large hallway and you can enjoy the technical booths and the conference registration.

Travel... โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿš†๐Ÿš—

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.

...and Accomodation ๐Ÿ›๏ธ

If you want to be 'adopted' by one of our Cluj JavaScripters during the JSHeroes conference (at least from Wednesday afternoon to Saturday morning, but possible more days if you wish to visit Cluj-Napoca), you can use our "Adopt a JavaScripter" couch-surfing program. We will pair you up with a host that we think is ok for you, according to the info you filled in the application forms.

Apply here if you want to be a guest or, if you're from Cluj-Napoca - apply here and be a host.

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.

Speakers, Topics, Language ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ

JSHeroes unites top international speakers from ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฐ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ด ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡บ ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ด Throughout the two days of conference, they will talk about the latest trends in the world of JavaScript and Web Development.

We are committed to tackle diverse topics and flavors from the JavaScript ecosystem, so all the speakersโ€™ proposals went through a complete analysis.

All talks are in English. We have no live streaming of the talks.

Catering ๐Ÿฒ

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.

Code of Conduct ๐Ÿค

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at JSHeroes are required to agree with our Code of Conduct. As organisers, Cluj JavaScripters will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all of you to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Tickets ๐ŸŽŸ๏ธ

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.

We have a few tickets left for your JavaScript friends and colleagues. All the Early Birds are sold out but at the moment we still have some Reasonably Early Bird Tickets available.

Visit Cluj-Napoca in June ๐Ÿ’ - it's the best time of the year!

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.

There's also other activities and places to visit in Cluj-Napoca and in Transylvania so we recommend that you definitely take a few days to look around.

Keep updated on our latest conference news ๐Ÿ”Š

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.

So, until, then, let's keep in touch:

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! ;)
