But then the most amazing thing happened, the programmer community in Armenia clearly wanted the conference to still happen and Gevorg Harutyunyan, my good friend whom I’ve known since basically day one of starting iterate hackerspace took the initiative and spearheaded the project. As I watched from San Francisco, Gevorg assembled a team of very dedicated people from the Yerevan tech scene and they started implementing JSConf Armenia.
Initial estimates of conference attendees began at 100, we thought that was a huge number at the time…but then it grew to 200 registrants, and then 400, then 800 and eventually to an insane 1500!
So we have many more events planned, the future for tech in Armenia is very bright and we must continue investing in our greatest resource, our people.
