Oxford attracts UK’s largest front­-end web conference

The following is a shortened press release.

March 2014 – This May many of the web’s finest developers will gather in Oxford for the third jQuery UK, to discuss and share ideas around the world’s most popular JavaScript framework.

Now in its third year, jQuery UK is the UK’s largest front­-end developer conference.  It is the only UK event dedicated to jQuery and firmly places Oxford on the map as a hub for technical excellence and innovation.

The 650 visitors from around Europe who will attend are web developers interested in leveraging the client-­side capabilities of modern browsers to build web and mobile applications using JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3 and of course jQuery.

Confirmed speakers include The Web Ahead’s Jen Simmons, Tilde Co-­Founder Yehuda Katz, CSS superstar Lea Verou and the jQuery Foundation’s Adam J. Sontag.  jQuery UK will offer valuable training sessions, as well opportunities for web developers to gather for discussion and debate.

Conference curator John Wards, Technical Director at White October says:

“Our previous two years have been great events and had a real buzz around them.  This year our focus is on the front­-end with more content than ever to choose from in the form of three conference tracks.  We have two awesome speaker tracks and a third offering hands­ on tutorials to a limited -numbers audience.  We are also hosting really interactive workshops the day before, designed to allow front­-end developers to increase their skillsets.”
