Frontend United is a conference that yearly hosts 25 legendary speakers talking about UX, browser performance, theming, Javascript and Drupal. ​​​​​On the 1st and 2nd of June we will host our very own remote livestream event, in Paramaribo! This means that we will be participating live, with Frontend United in The Netherlands. 

We made sure everything is just like attending the conference in The Netherlands: T-shirts, booklets, a video-steam with an up-close of the speaker, and a room full of enthusiastic designers and developers :) We even have a direct line to ask the speakers questions, and we have our own social event.



On the 1st and 2nd June you can start joining us from 7:45 a.m. and stay until 16:45 p.m.! We will be participating in the live stream of Frontend United Conference from the Educational Research Center of Telesur in Paramaribo. The name of Frontend Re-United stands for Remotely United! It's aim is to bring frontend developers, designers and Drupal themers from all kinds of backgrounds closer together and share knowledge, experiences and ideas!  

Join people across  4 different time zones for two days of great talks! Check out the e-booklet with agenda to get the idea of how great the event will be. You can also prepare questions as speakers will poll the audience through our platform. So it won't matter if you are sitting in the audience in Utrecht, Kigali, or if you drop by in Paramaribo - all attendees will  ask questions in the same way. 

Reserve your spot ( and follow the instructions for tickets! )

On site we will let you know of more details of social activities and how to ask questions at the speakers, and participate in the polls.

Next to 500 people for the main event in The Netherlands, we are expecting the same number from remote events hosted by local communities around the globe. Next to Paramaribo, there will also be a livestreaming events in Thailand, India and Rwanda!

For the last updates please check the Facebook-page or hear about it from our radio-report!

Never been to Paramaribo?

This year for the first time ever, Paramaribo will be among the Remotely United locations. If you live to far to travel to Utrecht, you may want to check out our conference here! Paramaribo was firstly founded in 17th century as a Dutch colony. With its colonial past, and merging of ethnic groups, Suriname has unique diversity of cultures on every step of the city. Its ethnic groups include Hindustan, Creole, Indonesian, Maroon, Amerindian, Lebanese, Chinese and Dutch people. Cultural differences are celebrated on numerous street festivals but also in everyday life – synagogue is in the neighborhood of the mosque and Hindu temple is situated by the church.

The old city of Paramaribo with its original street plan and Dutch architecture with local techniques and materials is on the list of Unesco World Heritage Sites. Its features from 17th and 18th century are entirely preserved on the banks of Suriname River (more on Lonely Planet)
