Bocoup Pre-Conference Training

Bocoup (who is also providing us with beautiful 100mbit WiFi) is doing a 1 day training at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz (Downtown - read: different than the conference venue). Ben Alman will be going over JavaScript from 10am to 5pm. Lunch is included! Contact @bocouptraining if you have any questions.

June 13th, 6:00pm – 8:00pm

The Enyo Pre-Conference Drinkup

Get off of work a touch early and join us at The Gingerman for a few drinks and some good conversation at 6pm on June 13th.

The Enyo team will be around to chat about all things JavaScript and they'd love it if you had a few drinks on their tab, because they're good people like that.

7:45am – 8:45am  •  6:30pm – 10:15pm

The Shuttle

TXJS will be providing a shuttle from downtown at the Radisson to the conference venue The Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar. The bus will start picking up at 7:45am and make its last pickup 8:45am. If you miss the bus, it's a short taxi ride, no worries!

Then after the conference you'll be free to leave the party to head back downtown. The bus will start making trips 30 minutes into the party and will continue to make trips until 15 minutes after the party ends.

All Day

The Disqus Hackroom

Our 3rd Party JavaScript slinging hacker friends at Disqus were kind enough to provision us with a proper hack room during the entire conference! Feel free to head into that room to work on something you were inspired by in a talk, or just go in there to argue about semicolons. Either way, there'll be WiFi, power, some A/V equipment, some arduinos and plenty of room. An official hallway track!

6:00pm – 10:00pm

The Bazaarvoice TXJS After Party at the Highball

A mere 100ft from the conference venue is the local Austin favorite "The Highball."

Head over to the Highball for bowling, karaoke (in a private room!), light appetizers, board games, ski ball, cocktails, beer and more! We won't have a full dinner for you but we should be able to tide you over until you can make it to one of the many close-by restaraunts or the shuttle back downtown.

The shuttle begins picking up at 6:30pm, right outside the Highball. The last shuttle pickup is at 10:15pm. We strongly encourage you to make this trip or plan on taking a taxi to your desitination
