Cycle.js is still in its infancy, our aim is to organize a small and focused conference. We are setting the initial limit at 50 participants. In case of insane demand we may consider moving to a bigger venue and making a bigger event.
We are unable to provide hosting for participants. Copenhagen has many hotels, cosy Airbnb apartments, and friendly couch-surfing hosts.
We are still looking for speakers, if you are interested to speak during the conference please contact email@example.com to introduce yourself and detail the topic of your presentations.
So far the confirmed speakers are:
|🇧🇷||André Staltz||RxJS core contributor, Creator of Cycle.js||Brains as building blocks: how Cycle.js came into existence|
|🇳🇿||Nick Johnstone||Creator of hot reloading and developer tools for Cycle.js||Back to the future: Time Travel and Hot Reloading with Cycle.js|
|🇫🇷||Hadrien de Cuzey||Cycle.js fanatic||Cycle on the bash side|
There will also be lightning talk time slots where you have 8 minutes to present something cool related to Cycle.js. You can register on-site for the lightning talks during the conference.
In addition to the speakers CycleConf wants to give participants a space to hack together and make the Cycle.js ecosystem even better. After the opening keynote there will be an opportunity to present your Cycle.js project, so other participants can join your team. We hope CycleConf will be a great space for connecting people around projects and new projects can emerge from our conference.

Futurice loves open source. We greatly benefit of the free available technology when we build digital services for our customers. Actions speak louder than words, so we are constantly looking for ways to give back to the community through our dedicated Spice Program. Encouraging our employees to embrace open source and sponsoring their personal projects is an efficient way to make a difference. The impact of André’s Cycle.js is a conclusive proof of this. We are happy to sponsor the Cycle.js community conference in Copenhagen, and several of our employees will attend the event.
