Meet the NearForm team at JSDay!


Social Media & Marketing Executive
News and Events, Javascript | 12th September 2019

It’s not long until Ireland’s FIRST ever Javascript conference and we’re so excited to be a part of it! We have to give a huge congratulations to the organizers for a superb speaker line-up, in what promises to be a jam-packed schedule with some of the best JavaScript professionals and organisations around!

Our speaker

NearForm DevOps Consultant David Gonzalez will be giving a talk about building DevOps friendly applications, making them easier to operate and maintain using 12 Factor Javascript Applications on Kubernetes. He is going to walk through the process of building a DevOps friendly Javascript app following best practices. The talk will be full of war stories and tips to unlock the potential of your engineering team to deliver applications that are easy to build, maintain and operate, maximizing the ROI and business value. 

Meet the team

You’ll also get a chance to talk to some of the NearForm team on the day at our booth. Got any burning questions on React, GraphQL or any other javascript technology, we’d love to chat! 

We’re also hiring so be sure to check out our current openings and learn more about our remote working model from Dean, Glen and Sean on the day. 

Giving back

At each event we sponsor, we really love to give something back to the local community. So instead of throw-away swag, we will be hosting a booth raffle where you’ll have the chance to win a pair of Apple AirPods! Every raffle entry (tickets will be in swag bags!) will equal a donation to local organisation Citywise Education.

Citywise Education, an educational charity based in Jobstown, Tallaght was established in 1994 as a response to educational under-achievement of young people living in underserved communities. 500 local young people, aged from 8 to 18 years, ranging from highly alienated youth to young people with third-level aspirations, attend Citywise Education’s character building, education and sporting programmes.

With a high focus on academics, Citywise provides supports for Junior and Leaving Certificate students through their award-winning programme, Fast Track Academy, as well as feeder programmes for younger students. It runs innovative STEM programmes, including 3D printing, robotics and computer coding, through STEMSquare@Citywise and there are also a variety of clubs for young people to participate in – Art, Chess, Guitar to name a few. Citywise Education emphasises the importance of character development, personal qualities and the need for each young person to serve society by giving back. 

Be sure to check out the JSDay website to see the full speaker line-up and grab your tickets! We’ll see you there!
