We laughed, we learned and we connected with hundreds of developers at the jQueryTO 2013 conference in downtown Toronto. The 2-day conference attracted the top talent in the city and beyond, featuring cutting edge presentations and a stellar speaker lineup, which included Paul Irish and Addy Osmani from the Chrome team and some of the biggest names in the jQuery developer community. (Slides for all the speaker’s presentations follow below.)

We used Google+ as a social platform during the event and asked everyone to “check-in” and use “party mode,” so we could crowd-source photos from the conference. Over 2 days, more than 150 photos were uploaded from attendees! You can find all of them on the event page here:

“A huge thank you to the 500+ devs that stayed to watch my paint performance keynote at +jQueryTO. Lots of great questions about rendering, CSS style perf and DevTools. This will be my fourth year speaking in Toronto and the developer community here continues to impress me with their level of knowledge and front-end engineering know-how. ” – Addy Osmani – Google Chrome Team

We want to thank all the volunteers for their help in running an awesome conference. We also want to thank all of the sponsoring organizations and companies. For a complete list of jQueryTO sponsors, visit our website: http://jqueryto.com/#sponsors
