9th Annual UtahJS Conference - Online Series

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 UtahJS Conference will be an online series.

Rather than an all-day conference, we will be hosting four lunch hour presentations.

As always, we price tickets to cover our costs. This year, $20 includes admission to all 4 presentations! Thanks for supporting the UtahJS Community.

We are using the new and very slick Vi.to platform to stream the presentation and host a Q&A session afterward. You can chat with speakers and attendees and ask questions before, during and after the presentations.

We are super excited to hear these speakers and hope you will join us!

Yarn 2: a next generation package manager

Yarn 2 with PnP dispenses with the node_modules folder entirely and creates an opportunity for perfect module resolution, faster startup, and instant package installs. The dream of cloning a node app and running it immediately--no install step required--is now a reality.

Thank you to our 2020 sponsors!
