View Source Conference: 16 great reasons to join us in Portland

What, when, where

View Source is a brand new conference for web developers, presented by Mozilla and friends, produced by the folks who also bring you the Mozilla Developer Network, to share knowledge of the Open Web. It’s a single track event with plenty of time and space for discussion, demos, and hallway conversations. Talks will be pragmatic and inspiring, focused on topics relevant to front-end developers and people who design and build web sites and web apps.

View Source happens in Portland, Oregon, November 2-4, beginning with Ignite lightning talks on Monday evening, followed by two full days of great presenters, curated conversations, and sociable evenings. Learn best practices and new tools for creating powerful apps and websites “using modern techniques that work today and will thrive tomorrow.”

Thanks to the generosity of our awesome friends and sponsors, we’ve been able to reduce the ticket price for View Source (and refund all current ticket-holders)!

Here’s a quick look at our lineup of presenters — 16 great reasons to go! We’d love to meet you there.
