Edge is a new kind of non-profit one-day conference on advanced web technologies for developers and browser vendors, raising funds for Girls who code
You can’t simply buy a ticket for Edge. We ask you to apply, and if you have something to contribute, you’ll be very welcome to join us. Edge is about everyone learning from everyone else, so you need to bring something to teach as well as a desire to learn. Every moment of the conference will be publicly available afterward.
There are lots of excellent conferences to learn as a beginner. Edge is for those who push boundaries. If it doesn’t make your brain hurt, we’re not trying hard enough.
We open each hour long session with a ten minute talk. After that, we’re into the discussion, and we keep it moving fast. We record everything, on video and in text. Everything is released for free to the world the moment the event ends.View the Schedule
Forget the regimented rows of seats. A big discussion needs a team, not an audience. Expect comfy seating, excellent wifi and room to think. Don’t expect in-your-face sponsorship, goody bags, or unreadable name badges.
We chose our sessions based on where the most activity is happening in developing the web platform. These are the topics that will shape the next generation of innovations in web technologies. So let's get them right.
You make Edge, but we invite expert panelists to help us get the discussion going. Here is a list of the organizations and panelists for the New York 2013 conference:

Once we've fixed the web, we're heading up to The Park NYC for the after party organised by Facebook. Enjoy rooftop drinks with spectacular views, let your brain cool off and relax in one of New York's coolest rooftop bars.
At our first event in London we supported CodeClub, and we're happy to announce that once again the majority of revenue from Edge ticket sales will be donated to a charity that promotes education of the next generation of engineers who will look after the web. For Edge NYC, we will be supporting Girls who Code.
Launched in Spring 2012, Girls Who Code is a nonprofit organization working throughout the United States to close the gender gap in the technology and engineering sectors.
With support from public and private partners, Girls Who Code works to educate, inspire, and equip high school girls with the skills and resources to pursue opportunities in computing fields.
