JSConf BR 2013 Wrap Up

Wow, it's really hard to put into words what we are feeling right now. Having had the experience of sharing precious moments with all the attendees and speakers, we only have the following words to say:


This event wouldn't be possible without the help of our sponsors, and we would like to thank Caelum and Dataprev for helping us to have a fantastic venue and lunch, Mozilla for ensuring our supply of caffeine and finger food during the entire day, &yet for our beer supply!

Have you blogged about JSConf BR? Shoot @jsconfbr a tweet and let us know! That's the best feedback we could have from you!

Having this family together was a blast! See you all next year!

Angelina Fabbro

Firefox OS Technical this-and-that at Mozilla. Mostly programs in JavaScript, Objective C and sometimes both at the same time.

Cryptography is his passion, and not only after the epiphany he had once realizing that his last name carries "ssl" in it. He's been helping the European Commission to implement a digital signature platform over the past years, and this was also the reason for krypt - so that he could do it in a sane language for once. He loves programming languages in general and he recently discovered blogging as a compensation for not haunting other people with lengthy emails anymore.
