When selecting speakers for our conferences we always hunt for a video of a prospective speaker, unless we’ve seen them for ourselves in the flesh. If we cannot find a video, we do not invite the speaker, since we cannot guarantee to our audience that they are excellent presenters. Not all conferences do so, but we do.
At first I agreed, but later I started to harbour some doubts, which is the reason I’m writing this piece.
On 13th of April the inaugural Know JS online conference takes place. I’m tangentially involved, though I will not speak. The conference is online, and runs from 9am to 6pm Eastern on 13th of April. You can attend from the comforts of your own house.
Know JS is a fairly special type of online conference. Four speakers,
Kent C. Dodds,
and Jem Young,
will give not a conference talk, but a full two-hour workshop about a topic of their choice. By buying a ticket you get access to all four of these workshops.
