Open source conference talk index. Project is no longer actively developed.


This was my first attempt at an open source project with multiple contributors all over the world. I even wrote an article about its initial release.

The idea was to make a website which developers could use to find conference talks on certain topics and to be able to check if an upcoming conference would offer talks that they had already seen.


  • Open source (features and data contributions)
  • Fast, static website
  • Bookmark talks (saved in local storage)
  • Project filtering and pagination

Some of the technologies used to make this project:

  • JavaScript
  • NextJS
  • ReactJS
  • Styled Components
  • Local storage
  • JSON files for the data

I used JSON files for the data so contributors could easily make pull requests. In hindsight I would never try this approach again, because it got really messy in the end. At the time I had no real experience with backend development, so this seemed like a good temporary solution to get the project going.

Project status

Unfortunately I was getting kind of burned out because of the development and maintenance of this project next to my full time job, so I had to stop working on it. This is why I had to halt development.
