About #fstoco

#fstoco is put on by Full Stack Toronto, a non-profit organisation geared towards providing web professionals with intermediate and advanced educational resources. #fstoco is a unique conference because it covers all the layers of the web: Front-end, Back-end, DevOps, UX and visual designs, project management, and product development.

Who Should Attend

If you work in the web industry #fstoco is for you! Every year, we bring together the world's brightest minds in the business to present on relevant topics with real-life applications. You will go back to work not only knowing how to do the latest and greatest, but most importantly the why.

Why You Should Attend

We believe that to become a better professional, you need to understand what the other members of your team are doing. We've planned our content schedule so that you can participate in your concentration/discipline or learn from others to further your career growth.

Who's Attending

Content is king. We strongly believe in NOT selling you our event based on any given speakers or their affiliations (i.e. Google, Microsoft, etc. - but to be frank, these people do actually tend to speak at our events). We are devoted to providing you unbiased, good content first. Check out the schedule we have planned for you

“After #fstoco, I want to a) learn all the things (dev), and b) buy all the things (IoT). May have to c) control impulses a little” - @andkerel

How we're different

All of our sessions at #fstoco follow a hybrid session model where the speakers will deliver the best in practical web solutions with real-life examples free of commercial content (no sponsored content or sales pitches here). This is the kind of learning that you can put into action the moment you return to work.

All sessions are followed by open Q&As with the speaker to help improve your practice of their idea. The speakers are also web professionals just like you! Like you, they personally deal with these problems and solutions daily so don't be shy. Ask away!

Our keynotes are here to inspire, challenge and provide you with more than hard-skills to take back to the office. These, along with lots of coffee will get your day kickstarted!

Furthermore, going to any conference is more than just sitting and listening to awesome talks, it's also about fostering valuable relationships to move your career forward and help you out when needed. We know "networking" can be difficult and we are here to help, we know that when you're passionate about something you can talk about it endlessly so we're going to show it off on your badge to help you start conversations. There is plenty of break time and we absolutely encourage you to get to know each other between all the awesome sessions.

What's Included

Building on the same great perks of last year this year's new addition is "passion talks", unorganized by us coordinated by you! There will be a special place for you to show and talk about your passion at this years conference, we will also show it off on your badge to help with networking during the breaks!

All sessions will be recorded, slides collected and posted online after the event for you to reference in the future.

We have a convenient mobile app to help you plan your conference schedule and experience.

Last but not least, who doesn't like a good party!? At the end of the first day we will all gather for some light refreshments & cocktails, and of course talk about what we have learned and how we are going to implement it back at work.

Oh! and heaps of #SWAG, don't forget about that!
