Ashley Williams We have a confession to make: last year, as the conference wraps and everyone starts trickling out of the JS Kongress venue, we’re already planning next year’s conference.

This is a good thing, an exciting thing.

But when the time comes to start thinking about your next JS Kongress Keynote Speakers, we get the night sweats.

Our main goal is always to invite people who will push you to think about the JavaScript landscape in new and valuable ways. But we also want to bring in someone who will set the stage for the amazing JS Kongress you’re about to experience. We want them to inspire you and put that umph in your step.

Well, night sweats no more because we *know* this year’s Keynote Speakers are going to do exactly that.

So without further adieu, we’re excited to announce our first JS Kongress Keynote Speaker.
