Over the years we’ve had many many meetups with some incredible speakers, mostly at the great venue provided by Skills Matter, and a few early single track JS mini conferences including one focused on mobile. Even though I’ve since returned to Phoenix, I still visit London a few times per year and continue to help organise what I hope is a consistently fun monthly meetup.
Last year, we decided to try something different. We felt that the community needed to do something that was both informative and genuinely fun. And from this idea was born the idea of HalfStack, which is:
- In a pub (at the old Truman Brewery)
- Lunch via great street food
- Time for people to talk and have fun
- Talks that work well in this environment (either very inspiring or with very impressive demos)
