At the heart of Amsterdam for JSNation 2023
JSNation 2023 brought a distinct hybrid touch to the traditional conference format. On one hand, 10,000 engaged remotely, making sure the knowledge sphere reached a global community far and wide. On the other, a lucky thousand like us soaked in the charm of Amsterdam, experiencing the event in person. After the long, pandemic-induced pause, the exciting atmosphere and the dynamic JSNation crowd were a refreshing sight that we've so dearly missed!
One of the standout moments was the much-anticipated talk by Wes Bos. Known for his invaluable contributions to the development community, Wes delivered a captivating talk on AI and its potential in web development. His insights unraveled the scope of AI as a new superpower for developers, opening up a realm of new possibilities for the exciting path that lies ahead. Jecelyn Yeen, from Google's Chrome DevTools team, also left her mark with her valuable tips and tricks on debugging, taking the tech talk to another level.
The following panel discussions and Q&A sessions opened a two-way communication channel between the speakers and the audience.
