JetBrains is again organizing a free virtual event covering JavaScript, TypeScript and related technologies. It takes place on November 10th, 2022 with all presentations being streamed live on You Tube, where they will remain available after the event.


The first JetBrains event devoted to the JavaScript ecosystem was held in October 2021 and if you missed it all its talks can  be found at JetBrains JavaScript Day. Now however you can plan to participate in JetBrains JavaScript Day 2022 which promises to be  a great opportunity to learn from community experts, catch up on the latest JavaScript trends, and connect with like-minded professionals. 

JavaScript Day is timed to reach an audience in both Europe and the United States, starting shortly after 9 am for those on Eastern Standard time. Eight 40-minute talks are scheduled with breaks of 10 minutes between them, 40 minutes between the 4th and 5th talks. The line up is as follows:

  • Blitz.js: The Next.js Toolkit for Rapid Iteration

This talk comes from Aleksandra Sikora who is the Lead Blitz.js Maintainer at Flightcontrol based in Wrocław, Poland. She has worked as a full-stack developer with many different languages such as Elixir, Golang, Python, and TypeScript and the outline of her talks says that the main goal behind creating Blitz was to give you a tool for rapid full-stack development with the best developer experience possible. She plans to show what problems Blitz solves and introduce its core concepts, showing how to read and write data from the client with full typesafety and without messing with HTTP or serialization. 

  • I Would Never Use an ORM

This intriguing title is for a session by Matteo Collina, Co-Founder & CTO at who is also also a prolific open source contributor in the JavaScript ecosystem. Matteo is a member of the Node.js Technical Steering Committee and is also the author of the fast logger Pino and the Fastify web framework. His Node.js Cookbook, published by Packt, has reached its third edition. 

  • Behind the Scenes: Discussing One of the Most Interesting TypeScript 4.9 Features

Andrey Starovoyt, WebStorm Team Lead at JetBrains who has worked on support for the TypeScript language for 8 years, takes one of the new features of the forthcoming version and show how it works and why it was added. He intends to  discuss its internal details, including type inference and contextual types, as well as divulging other things related to the language support in JetBrains IDEs.

  • Records & Tuples Are Coming: The Next Exciting JavaScript Feature

Nicolò Ribaudo is Open Source Engineer at Igalia who is a maintainer of Babel, the JavaScript compiler and a TC39 invited expert. His topic is the ECMAScript proposal that brings two new immutable primitives, Records and Tuples to the language answering the questions what do they look like, what capabilities do they bring, and when will you finally be able to use them?

  • Design Decisions for the Components Library

Alexey Shestakov is a Frontend Developers at JetBrains who for the last 5 years  has been trying to provide a great developer experience to his team by creating a components library and taming other tools. His talk explains how JetBrains ended up with three complicated component libraries instead of just a simple one, looking at npm-package interactions, custom CSS-modules, custom CSS properties, dual build tooling and multi-project TypeScript along the way.

  • The World Beyond Components

Ryan Carniato, Principal Engineer at Netlify, is the creator of SolidJS and a maintainer of Marko and describes himself as a "JavaScript performance enthusiast and a fine-grained reactivity super-fan ... obsessively passionate about the future of JavaScript frameworks." His talk will look at what comes after the component model and how, driven by the need for more granularity, and empowered by compilation, reactivity is becoming the universal language of user interfaces.

  • Nuxt 3 – More Than Vue 3 on Steroids

Alexander Lichter, a web development consultant at Developmint and a maintainer of Nuxt, the open source Vue-based meta-framework will focus on Nuxt 3 which is coming closer to the final release. His talk looks at the benefits it can provide to developers. Besides building a tiny application, deployed within minutes, he will also check out Nitro, the new server engine of Nuxt 3.

  • What's New in Angular v15

Minko Gechev, Product & DevRel lead for Angular at Google, will cover the advancements in developer experience Angular has made over the past year. These include improvements in the component authoring format, e2e testing, and performance. He'll also look at the debugging experience and how Angular and Chrome DevTools have evolved stack traces for web developers.

All of these talks seem tempting and if you can't spare enouigh time on the day to attend all of the one that interest you its good to know they'll be permanently available on JetBrains YouTube. The advantage of attending the sessions live is that you can ask questions in the YouTube chat during the presentations which the speakers will try to answer.

If you register, by providing you name and email address, you can ask for a reminder at the beginning of the event or individual reminders for select sessions.
