50 Top JavaScript Conferences to Attend in 2022

Angela Stringfellow

JavaScript is the most used programming language across the world and represents nearly 65% of all software development work. With dozens of libraries (such as React) and frameworks (such as Vue.js) based on JavaScript, it continues to influence the development world. A programming language that can be used for both client-side and server-side development, JavaScript is the language that enables web pages to be interactive. JavaScript, along with its libraries and frameworks, can also be used for building notification systems, developing mobile applications, and more.

Given its versatility and widespread use, most developers would do well to gain some experience working with JavaScript. Conferences remain one of the best ways for developers, software engineers, and other industry professionals to network and learn about the latest applications and industry developments.

In this guide, we’ve pulled together 50 of the best JavaScript conferences (including Node.js conferences, Next js conferences and React conferences) that take place each year worldwide. Several of these events were held virtually this year due to COVID-19, and you’ll find some excellent options for both in-person and remote access in 2022. Most of the conferences presented focus primarily on JavaScript programming, but we’ve also included some events that cover software programming at a high level or offer opportunities for a deep dive into related technologies.

Note that some JavaScript conferences haven’t yet announced dates, costs, or other details for their 2022 events at the time of publication. As most conferences are held around the same time each year, we’ve listed the JavaScript conferences below chronologically based on the upcoming event dates or the dates when the event took place in 2021.
