Talk.JS + Talk.CSS = JSConf.Asia Special!

Event location: Carousell HQ

It’s JSConf.Asia week! And so we’re having a long overdue combined meetup with our sister meetup, Talk.JS. The turn-out was fantastic and so were the talks. We are especially thankful to Carousell for stepping in at the very last minute to rescue us from logistical issues with the previous venue. And SP Digital who lent us extra chairs.

We truly love this community, and the community loved us back two-fold. This event wouldn’t have been possible without the support from all of you, and for that we are very grateful 🙏.

So this happened…
