jQuery UK is back

After a successful 2012 event, we are back on the 19th of April 2013. Same single track format, still in Oxford, larger venue!

We want you!

We want lots of talks. We want lots of talks from all walks of life.

If you know of someone you think should be giving talks give them this link, or point them here first and then get them to come back and submit.


Talks covering jQuery or pure JavaScript are welcome. Please feel free to submit more than one!

Some very broad topics we are looking for this year.


Submit your proposal by 11th of October, 17:30 BST (GMT+1). No excuses.

Talks are usually 30 minutes long (for longer talks we’d get in touch with you directly). That includes 3-5 minutes of Q&A. We will be on a tight schedule and enforce the end of a talk rigorously. We suggest timing your presentation in advance.

Make sure you care, and make sure we see you care. Typos, sloppy formatting and all-lowercase submissions make our reading of your proposal tedious. These things will definitely count against your proposal.

Don’t overdo it either. If you need more than two or three paragraphs to get to the point of your topic, we need to ask you to slim things down. With the amount of submissions we get, the quicker you can to make a good impression, the better.


We'll pay for your travel to Oxford, we can arrange this for you. Or you can sort it yourself and invoice us later. What ever is easiest.

If you are flying into the UK, we'll send one of the team to meet you at the airport and take you to the hotel. We'll also arrange and pay for a taxi home. Getting the bus or train into Oxford, we'll make sure we are there to get you to the hotel. It's a short walk, but new city and all that!

We'll pay for 2 nights in a nice Hotel, and have a speakers dinner for you the night before to chat to the fellow speakers. You are welcome to stay for longer at your own cost. Oxford is a lovely city.

Selection process

Here is how we roughly pick our talks

(and a number of details that we make up as we go along)

Questions? Help?

Contact John Wards: to talk through a proposal first if you want, always happy to help.

Worried about not being able to produce slides? The folks from JSConf EU have slide templates available, and again I'm happy to help advise (tip: google images search for kittens)
