We’ll be announcing details shortly for HalfStack Online 3 will will happen on a Friday sometime this May.

If you missed HalfStack Online 2, videos from the sessions are available on YouTube. You missed much of the fun being there live, from the comical interludes to the live chat, so we hope to see you there next time.

We’ve been quiet for a while as we wanted to think about what to do to keep the HalfStack format fun and creative in this more isolated form we’ve all been living for the past year. …


Update: After seeing a few other JS online conferences announce their schedule for roughly the same time, we have picked a new date to try to avoid conflicts. Tickets now available at halfstackconf.com/online!

HalfStack is a collection of fun events focused on the possibilities of the JavaScript and web ecosystems. The conferences are typically a mix of informative and engaging sessions, relaxed vibe, and celebration/party.

HalfStack Online

We’re getting a bit stir crazy with the covid-19 isolation. We’ve always felt that the value of HalfStack is that in-person shared experience, but that’s not currently possible. …


Update: We’re running HalfStack Online, part creative JS+web celebration, part covid-19 charity fundraiser, on the 22nd of May and then the 21st of August!.

Obviously with everything happening in the world currently with covid-19, HalfStack has been less of a priority for you and for us. After all, what makes HalfStack special is that it’s an incredibly fun day to get together in real life and have a shared experience around the potential and future of JS and the web platform.

We were fairly optimistic just a few weeks ago, but then things got worse and we had to postpone…

Original overview

We’ve received several inquiries about the Corona virus and its potential impact on HalfStack events in 2020.

The short answer is we hope it will not have an impact, but we are monitoring the situation closely, especially in light of events like Mobile World Congress, TSConf Japan, and F8 getting…

HalfStack Vienna

Why Vienna?

Our primary organizer, Dylan Schiemann, visited Vienna last year and absolutely fell in love with the city and the local JavaScript community, meeting many amazing people during a meetup talk. Vienna has a thriving JavaScript ecosystem, but not many JavaScript conferences to celebrate the community.

Vienna is a…


HalfStack, the UI-centric JavaScript conference started in London in 2015, is expanding beyond London to Vienna, New York, and Phoenix!

HalfStack provides a safe and creative forum for sharing, learning and inspiring the JavaScript community. We started the event in London to create a different kind of conference, one very speakers could boldly experiment with new ideas. Over the past four years talks have ranged from creating a flappy bird clone in 30 minutes to making live music as an audience to JS poetry readings to cats vs. dogs debates to using speech recognition APIs to detect live rap lyrics.
