Every year we bring you more than just fantastic talks from our wonderful line-up of speakers.

Practical workshops

In 2018 we're hosting three workshops the day before the conference: Front-End Performance, Advanced JavaScript, or A Deep Dive Into React for Beginners. Space is very limited so make sure to book your ticket soon!

Pre-conference quiz

We love running the Render Quiz on the evening before the conference! It's the perfect opportunity to meet old friends, make new ones, and test your knowledge to win some awesome* prizes.

It’s free for Render delegates to attend, but space is limited so RSVP now to secure your place.

  • When: 19:30-22:30 on Thursday 22 March
  • Where: Wig and Pen, 9-13 George St, Oxford OX1 2AU (See map)

*The awesomeness of prizes cannot be guaranteed.

Lunchtime learning with Cloudinary

We're delighted to welcome Doug Sillars, Freelance Performance Engineer, to Render Conf for our first lunchtime learning session. Grab some food and join us as Doug shares his experience on 'Delivering fast and beautiful images and video'.

The average website page weight is ~50% images, and 25% video. There are thousands of screens and devices that receive this content. In this lunch & learn, we’ll examine strategies to send the perfect image or video to every device, ensuring a fast, beautiful rendering of your content.

His book, "High Performance Android Apps" was published by O'Reilly in the fall of 2015. Doug is an international digital nomad, combining travel and remote work.

After party and hack

After the talks, you can kick off the weekend with your fellow delegates. There will be tasty food (artisan pizza and burritos!), retro games, music, beers & cider, wine, and soft drinks. All drinks are included in your conference ticket but bring some cash in case you get peckish as our food vans don't accept card.

JS Oxford is back at Render Conf 2018 to host this year's hackathon. Bring your laptop (and charger) with you and hack away at some cool projects with us during the after party.
