Hi {Boss’ Name},

I’d like to attend JS Interactive taking place October 10–12 in Vancouver BC, Canada. Vendor-neutral by design, the conference offers case studies, panels, session presentations and lightning talks that tap into emerging trends in JavaScript architectures, with a keen interest in material that provides clarity on the rapidly evolving, sometimes complex, landscape.

The track(s) that will benefit our business the most include {Insert Most Appropriate Track: accessibility, application development and APIs, artificial intelligence and machine learning, community and developers, serverless, internationalization, IoT, performance, progressive web apps, security, standards, testing tools and infrastructure}. Additional benefits of the conference include:

  • JavaScript is used throughout the IT stack and can build everything from robotics to mobile apps. Best practices around managing JavaScript and its adjacent technologies will be shared by Comcast, Microsoft, Google, Netflix, Samsung, PayPal, PBS, and many more.
  • JS Interactive event unites the industry’s most respected domain experts and key maintainers behind the most popular and important JavaScript projects to gain insight into the roadmap of these projects and where they are heading.
  • JS Interactive is the premier vendor-neutral, enterprise-geared event that unites the leading developers, end users, technical experts in JavaScript.
  • There will be more than 50 sessions in the two-day conference. These sessions include workshops, technical talks, keynotes and use cases that will inform the future development of JavaScript technologies.
  • The event will not only hone my skills with JavaScript technologies but also help me learn how best to adopt the technology into our business.
  • Key session includes JavaScript: Enterprise Adoption and Usage at Disney; Building Websites for the Invisible Majority; What’s New in Node.js Core; Going FaaSter: Function as a Service at Netflix; Internationalize Your Web Application with Globalize.js; Offline First: Making Your App Awesome When the Network Isn’t.

The event costs $350 USD through July 20. JS Interactive has also partnered with airlines Air Canada and Delta for discount tickets to the event.

I would be happy to write a post-conference report and share with other members of the team on what I’ve learned and how we can implement tools and techniques around JavaScript into our business strategy.
