Live From Portland, It’s jQuery!

June 10th, 2013

Later this week, jQuery Conference is returning stateside for the first time in 2013, and we’re excited to announce another first: inspired by the mighty Willamette River running through Portland, we’re bringing you our first-ever live stream! No matter where you are in the world, you’ll be able to take in both days of #jqcon and the pre-conference Bocoup training. Doing a live stream comes with its own challenges and complexities, so we are selling tickets for each stream, and wanted to take a moment to walk you through your options.

Conference Live Stream

A ticket for the conference live stream costs $149, which entitles you to both tracks on June 13th and 14th. However, jQuery Foundation members get free tickets to the live stream. Membership in the foundation is as little as $100 annually (and you get a t-shirt!), so now’s a great time to join the foundation, show your support for jQuery and learn a whole lot! If a bunch of folks at your company would all like to attend, we’re also selling Group tickets for $749.

Training Live Stream

In addition, live streaming tickets are available for the one-day Bocoup trainings on June 12th for $299, with an additional $50 discount for jQuery Foundation members. You can choose to attend either the Advanced jQuery or Front-end Fundamentals classes. Group tickets are available for $999.

How It Works

Once you buy your live stream tickets, the morning of each event you’ll receive an e-mail with your unique link to the stream. Click on it! (Or simulate a mouse click using the whole document.createEvent song and dance, if you’re so inclined.)

Odds and Ends

We still have a few late-bird tickets remaining, and we’ve just announced we’ll be hosting a party on June 13th thanks to our friends at Jive Software, so if you’re still on the fence, hopefully you just fell off (gently)! Whether you’re joining us in person or on the stream, we’re looking forward to three days of fun and learning, and hope you are too.

As always, follow @jqcon for detailed conference updates, and join us in the #jqcon channel on Freenode to chat with fellow attendees around the room, and around the world.
