JSCampAsia

Its been an awesome 2 days at JsCampAsia – great talks, great people, fun events.


Group picture from above!

It was about 2 years ago when I first watch Ryan Dahl’s node.js presentation at jsconf online. I subsequently found other quality jsconf talks so when I first learnt that JsCampAsia was going to be held in Singapore, I decided it was an event I should attend.

When Thomas Gorissen the JSCamp organizer asked if would like to conduct a workshop on three.js, I was really excited and agreed. So I learnt Ricardo/@mrdoob had mentioned me earlier at JSConf.EU, and it was a pity he couldn’t come as he was attending dotJs in Paris.

Its my first time giving a talk at such scale, so its really nice to have some attendees came to me telling me that they have found have enjoyed the workshop or have found three.js interesting. (I’m sure no one was nasty enough to tell me if I was bad, so I’ll probably do some self criticism when I grab a copy of my video)

Apart from the excitement of speaking, it just pleasurable to listen to the talks to the speakers coming from around the world – some really interesting, some informative, some engaging, enjoyable – and some I’ve missed out, I’ll be will catching them once the videos get released.

So the last thing awesome about JSCamp is about meeting people, although some really briefly. To the audiences who said hi, thanks or even asking questions, I’m thankful and appreciate that. In turn, I probably have asked other speakers some difficult or silly questions.

On returning home (at the northern end of this small island), my body decided it deserved a day of hibernation.

Overall, JSCampAsia was a great conference, and to be a small part of it is my honor and pleasure. Hope to see you all again!

Only bad thing about seating in the front is the “giraffe neck”.


Panel discussion – pretty sure @divya isn’t looking at her mobile phone this time.

One thought on “JSCampAsia

  1. Nice write up!

    The conference hall surely looks really special, different to the usual tech conference hall.

    The giraffe neck hurts just by looking at the pictures.

    I’ll be looking forward to the videos to see yours! :-)
