The after party
Conference hard, party hard
We want you to relax and have a good time after the conference. In good tradition of all JSConf.eu related events the after party will be free for all. You are encouraged to bring your friends, your partner or other fellow geeks. We will provide everyone with free drinks until the budget is empty. We won't provide food though, but there are plenty of good food locations around.
Unfortunately it's not really summertime anymore in Berlin, so we decided to use an an indoor location this year. Good thing though: it's the same stunning venue that is already used for the conference itself, Stadtbad Oderberger. The party will start around 7:30pm, join us, you are very welcome!
Not only the speakers are awesome
Looking for a ticket? Sorry, they were gone very, very fast. Your best bet is to follow @berlinjs as we will retweet if someone is giving away their ticket. Ticket or not, please join us at the after party to meet a lot of great people.
Got a ticket? See who's also attending on our Lanyrd page. And while you're at it, please add yourself to that list. Thank you for having so much trust in us and buying a ticket.
A great lineup
The unrejected Rejects
First of all we would like to thank all the applicants for the massive amount of talk submissions, you are awesome! You have sent us enough stuff to run a three day conference and even then we would still have to reject talks. You read that right: We had to reject talks from Reject.js.
We had a really tough time picking from those great proposals. Unfortunately we cannot give a talk slot to every submission. Next year's Reject.JS will provide another opportunity. Also if you happen to be in Berlin, be sure to checkout the regular BerlinJS meetup which is always a great opportunity for talks.
Browserver is an exploration in simplifying app architecture, by looking at it upside-down, and turning web browsers into Internet-addressable web servers. It exposes a node.js-like API in the browser, tunnelling HTTP over WebSockets so that you don't need to roll your own custom code to connect the various pieces of your web architecture to your end clients
Instead, you can move the complexity of your app to the edges by making your end clients first-class HTTP servers, and then use your existing HTTP-related infrastructure to communicate with them.
Nowadays developers are flooded with various libraries which are supposed to help and speed up the development process but often proove to be counterproductive. Same with design processes - designers are trapped with styles and hypes which they use without thinking.
This talk is more inspirational, and it's aim is to show good practices within processes, emphasize the importance of decisions made within them and how they impact whole projects. It will also compare some frameworks and libraries available and point out which one of them are useful in which use cases.
Community outreach. meetups, donation drives. We will explore some concrete examples that we can do about the issues we care about and stop just drooling.
Distributed Computing is a strange place where people think differently. Travelling there seems dangerous, if you are used to local or centralized computing.
But incredible riches are to be found if you can learn it's secrets. This talk is a report on my adventures into distributed computing, and advice for fellow travellers!
More often than not Node.js is hotly tipped as the next big thing. Have you ever asked yourself: Why?
This talk looks at Node.js in a cross-border context and discusses what future directions boost Node.js' chances.
I spend a lot of time reviewing other's people code; there are some lessons I learned in a hard way. So this talk will be about code quality, patterns, github flow and how we all can be a better programmers.
There are a myriad of testing tools and solutions. I'll show you what's out there and what we as a community need to do next to get to the Holy Grail to ensure a better web experience for everyone.
A unusual introduction to Coffeescript, whitespaces, classes and other scary things.
This presentation will only cover very few code examples of Coffeescript but I will give the audience lots of insight of how humans perceive the world.
The audience will learn how humans react to structure, how we perceive "negative space" (whitespaces being one instance to it) and "symbols", and how we model the world.
I will give a amusing presentation on the psychology and philosophy of programming and programming languages.
These fine sponsors made this possible

The rejected venue
A former Volksbadeanstalt*
The Reject.js 2012 venue is something very special as it was rejected in itself for nearly two decades. It'll be completely renovated during 2013 and will shine in complete new glance 2014.
So this will be the last time ever you can see the venue in its charming old but comfortable look. We'll have some more space than last year while still being in the middle of Berlin.
Oderberger Str. 57
Next to the main entrance there is a side entrance that will be used to enter the venue. We will put some banners there and there will be a pavillon, so it should be easy to spot.
You can also enter through the main entrance of the GLS and just walk all the way through their backyard to enter the venue. Trouble finding us? Just enter the GLS and ask for direction at their reception.
