    Great experience! It was my first - was so excited! Now I feel like my career is really starting. Definitely going next year! :D

      thanks for the tip! it's so easy not to sleep properly especially when you have a project to complete!

    This was my first time at HTMLDevConf. I had a good time learning about hot topics in todays web development world. Definitely coming back next year.

    This was my first time for this conference, but I'll definitely attend any future ones. My sole regret is not finding time for more sessions and classes, I plan to remedy that next time. Really worthwhile, and a bargain to boot. Kudos to Ann and the rest of the organizers.

    Yes, high praise from me, too. Great event in all regards. There were frequently several sessions at once I would have liked to have attended.
    My one observation would be that the expo seemed a little light, and I wonder what might be done to possibly encourage more companies to have a presence?

    Enjoyed the comments, am emerging from catching up on sleep. As founder, the motivation is to put forward a quality yet affordable technical training oriented conference.

    Essentially this is a teaching conference. Every time we do it we walk a tight rope financially and in every other way to put it on. We see no other bootstrapped homegrown technical conferences that grow to be at Moscone. Instead large corporate or VC backed is the norm.

    Speakers, sponsors, attendees come with their own technical biases and agendas. Organizing it is not for the faint of heart. The challenge is to make it all work together in a balanced way. We've had both successes and a few facepalms.

    Very happy so many people came to both the conference and the training. There are some easy tweaks for the future like making sure Moscone turns on the air, & hard ones like enough money for private wifis in sessions to help speakers, plus the everlasting challenge of good content balance. Thanks for your input.

      Just piling on with the praise here, but yeah, considering the price tag, the relative independence from sponsors, and the fact that it happens twice a year, the conference and its content are extraordinary. While fixing wi-fi or reducing corporate sales pitches might require $$$ that would make the conference price much less attractive, there is at least one thing you can do at no charge: You need to speak louder when you are at the podium, Ann! Other than that, I have zero complaints and nothing but high fives for this conference.

      I heartily agree with Giacomo and Dave. I'm also a repeat attendee, and found the conference an embarrassment of riches. Thanks so much to you and the other organizers for your work making this conference happen!

    Had a blast as usual, am fine with the mix of mostly pure tech and a few vendor talks. There aren't many independent conferences that stay around and if they do they cost an order of magnitude more. Most conferences are run by large companies and their purpose is to that is there to lock you into their eco system, which is one of the reasons I love this one, it's more about technology education.
    That being said, that this is about as pure tech oriented and independent conferences as we get, come on people, of course they have to pay the bills so a little politeness to the vendors who do that is ok, who knows you may even see something you like. Last time I checked holding a conference isn't free. Also I know the organizers and worry they work a bit too hard so hey, thanks, some of us appreciate it. A lot.

    It was hard to judge the content level of the speech upfront from the text on the website so often I ended up at talks that were actually not interesting for me (totally different topic or too easy). I also felt a couple of the speeches were more about promotion.

    Plenty of amazing sessions yesterday!
    Unfortunately there is no way to attend all of them so I made a collection of all the slides.

    Awesome as usual. I don't think I've ever been to a Moscone event where the WiFi worked right. Maybe next year HTML5DevConf can contract with a provider?

    Thanks to the organizers for another great conference! Lots of good stuff to learn, digest & play with.

    Had a great time, learned a lot and enjoy the format, enough going on to where there was something that interested me almost always. They do an amazing job for that price point, just amazing, I just hope they don't get too exhausted and stop.

    Shame I could only make the first day - interesting sessions though, and seemed both well-organized and well-attended. Going to look for those videos later.

    Super great opportunity to learn about what's be implemented on popular browsers as well as what's been implemented for mobile web.

    Need better, more engaging sessions. Too much selling in many sessions. Perhaps fewer, better speakers next year?

    Great event, fun and informative.

    Did anyone make any video recordings for those of us who have to work? :-(

    October 23, 2013

    • Vanessa W.

      Many sessions are being recorded. Check the site (http://www.html5devco...­) in the ensuing weeks as they are produced and uploaded.

    • Benjamin D.

      I spoke with someone from the conference. They've been recording everything, and sometime in the near future qill release what they have

      October 23, 2013

  • Richard F.

    I'm going to be honest here, with no reflection on the HTML5 Dev Conference. The WiFi as Moscone sucks. It is unacceptable for a conference center in 2013. It is so weak that THREE presenters had to cut live demos out because the signal strength was so low or unreliable. Also, there are are essentially NO power outlets for those seated. Moscone is something out of the 70's! But best of the worst is the absolute abysmal Wifi here. Somebody of connection to Moscone, please pass the feedback up to them. I can hardly get to twitter, in fact this posting is failing to upload over their sucky wifi !!!!!

    I wish the event was all recorded - missed some sessions 5pm as headed to college to teach

    Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 11:40am I'll be speaking about "Building collaborative HTML5 apps using a backend-as-a-service (BaaS)" in room E-134 (http://html5devconf.com/speakers/joao_parreira.html#session). See you all there.

    Is it just me, or does adding the lunch option to the conference really cost $150?

    August 1, 2013

    • Ann B.

      Yep. Lunch costs about $75/day at Moscone (two days $130) which includes the tax and service charge of 30% as per SF Unions. To be fair to the Moscone, hotels in SF often charge even more for catering events so last time I paid an even higher charge at the hotel. It is good to be King (cough) venue caterer :)
