Diversity Tickets: Now accepting applications

We have now opened our application for our Diversity Attendee Tickets. If you would like to apply, fill out our three question application. These are free tickets to JSConf EU, plus up to €500 for travel and hotel, supported by generous community members.

As previously announced, this year we are offering five Super Golden Diversity Supporter tickets for sale. We talked about the motivation for this inititive in a post a couple weeks ago.

So far, we have sold two such tickets. Huge thank yous to:

  • Travis CI, our hometown friends behind everyone’s favourite continuous integration service
  • Mike West, who bought a stand-alone Diversity Support-Only Ticket. Thank you, Mike!

We will notify recipients of the tickets as soon as possible, and others will remain on a waiting list in case we sell the three remaining Diversity Supporter tickets.

We believe that a more diverse crowd makes for a better event. If you agree, we invite you to become supporter. We still have three Super Golden Diversity Supporter tickets left. You get:

  • 1 JSConf EU ticket for yourself to keep.
  • 1 JSConf EU ticket for someone in the community who couldn’t afford to come otherwise

(You will pay for both tickets plus a 500€ travel stipend for the other person.)
