jQuery has proven to be a great melting pot to build a conference around because it provides a common point of reference to help professionals, hobbyists, and hackers build the future of interactivity in web applications. - Mark Reale, jQueryTO Organizer

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) February 28, 2014

jQueryTO, one of Canada’s largest web developer conferences, has just announced its headlining speakers. The event, now in its second year, will take place March 15 - 16 at the Sony Centre and feature some of the best-known names in User Experience Architecture and Advanced Web Development.

Engineers and executives from some of the most innovative companies in web technology, including 500px, Mozilla, Netflix, Rdio, Tumblr, and Verold, as well as leadership from the jQuery Foundation, will be speaking. Kris Borchers, Executive Director jQuery Foundation, will be delivering a keynote address on the state of jQuery, and Dave Methvin, President, jQuery Foundation, will be talking about Javascript and where it’s headed.

“The jQuery Foundation is proud to have partners like jQueryTO,” said Dave Methvin, President, jQuery Foundation. “jQuery is the world's most popular JavaScript library by far, but the Foundation's mission goes beyond just jQuery. Our conferences help web developers to learn more about best practices and explore the state of the art in front-end development tools.”

Last year’s jQueryTO was a sold out affair with 400+ developers, engineers, designers, and UX architects in attendance. This year, attendance promises to grow significantly. The popularity of the conference comes as no surprise to organizer BNOTIONS, a Mobile Strategy, Data & Analytics Innovation Firm, who sees the conference as vital to the health of the tech industry and tech community.

“We are incredibly interested in helping to create and maintain a robust tech community, both in Canada and in the larger global ecosystem. With the support of the community and some incredible partners, we have put together a truly world class event,” said Mark Reale, jQueryTO Organizer & Director of Interface Development at BNOTIONS. “jQuery has proven to be a great melting pot to build a conference around because it provides a common point of reference to help professionals, hobbyists, and hackers build the future of interactivity in web applications.”

jQueryTO registration is currently open. Prospective attendees are encouraged to act now, as availability is limited. Tickets are $350, which includes admission to all talks. To register or learn more, visit jqueryto.com.
