VanJS is a meetup for web developers downtown Vancouver. The focus is on Javascript, HTML5, and the open web. Javascript frameworks, browser functionality, tips and tricks are all popular topics. The meeting format is two 45 minute talks, followed by pub time for discussion.

We usually meet every other month. Let us know if there's something you'd like to give a talk on!

We have a Code of Conduct that all participants must agree to follow at the event and we ask that you carry that participation into any events that follow that night:

VanJS is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, religion, or choice of editor. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form - this includes jokes made about the aforementioned qualities of personhood, even when made ironically.

If someone asks you to leave them alone or to end a conversation, do just that. The conversation is now over.

Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any VanJS presentation or sponsorship material.

Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event at the discretion of the organizers.

At each event either or both of Allen Pike or Angelina Fabbro will be present. If you have a problem that requires mediation, find one of them, they are happy to help.
