We have exciting news about this year’s Decompress event! Similar to previous years, Decompress will be a community day for designers and developers run by the CSSConf and JSConf team. It will be held the day after these conferences (Dec 2nd) and located in the same venue (the Melbourne Meat Market).
Our favourite part about Decompress from previous years was the relaxed atmosphere of people working together on projects and and learning new things from each other. We’re hoping to encourage that even more this year and so, alongside excellent talks by local speakers, we will have FREE informal workshops! These will not have fixed capacities and will all be run together in one large space as a semi-guided hack day. Leading the different workshop topics we are excited to announce the following terrific individuals.
“Merging Data and Art” lead by Ri Liu
“Building Mobile Apps Using Web Tech” lead by Tommy Williams
“Blending WebGL and Video” lead by Charlie Gleason
In the morning, they will each inspire you with some of the amazing things that they’ve built and show you the libraries, tools, and APIs that they used. The idea is that you then choose a project to work on (or maybe you will have even thought of one beforehand!) and throughout the day build something amazing of your own. In addition to the people above, there will be lots of other people around to help you out and provide advice. At the end of the day, we’ll all go to a nearby pub to discuss what we learned and built over some drinks. We are hoping that everyone has a great time, learns a bunch, and goes away having made lots of new friends.
If you haven’t already, we’re asking that everyone fill out this very short (2 question) survey. This is to help us get an idea of how many people will likely be coming to Decompress this year. Given a lot of you will have a Decompress ticket that came with your ticket(s) to CSS/JSConf it’s not easy for us to estimate this otherwise.
Last but not least, Decompress has two new team members: Isabell and myself!
Entry is free for all CSSConf and/or JSConf attendees. Otherwise, Decompress tickets are only $25 and include coffee, lunch and snacks. It'll be one hell of a day, don't miss out.
