Prague, mother of all cities

Welcome to Prague, one of the most beautiful capitals of Europe. You will surely have a great time, whether you are only staying for the conference or you will take a couple of days to look around.

Endless touristy places, not one, but two castles, excellent food and drinks on every corner, dozens of parks, 4th best ZOO in the world, a river and much more. And of course, what better time to visit than summertime! More about Prague…

Sam Trojan

TW: @SamuelTrojan

Sam is only 13 years old but he is already learning how to program, so far in JavaScript as he’s creating his first web pages. We'll also have adults talking about teaching kids to program, but Sam will talk about it from kid's point of view.

He gave a lightning talk at DevFest CZ 2017 in Prague which was well received, so he has even some stage experience.

Sam’s talk: Three Ways My Programming Teacher Rocks (and you can too)!
