    The glory of amp-script: Unleashing the kraken
    Kristofer Baxter, Google
    AMP Documents have traditionally not allowed for custom JavaScript, relying on the well built large corpus of Web Components designed and validated to work within AMP. Today, we release the Kraken. We’ll introduce `amp-script`, allowing your custom JavaScript to operate within AMP Documents with reasonable limits. Now your custom logic can be expressed with the world’s most popular programming language.

    Everything I Know I Learned from AMP: Adopting an AMP Core Mindset
    Melissa DePuydt, WaPo
    Too often, engineers view AMP as "just one more thing to implement." In reality, AMP provides engineers with a series of guiding principles that can help them deliver more performant websites—even when it comes to non-AMP pages. So, what would happen if teams began to think with an AMP Core Mindset? In this talk, we will explore AMP's core design principles and unpack how businesses can (and should!) incorporate these principles into all aspects of their decision making, in order to help teams align on goals and make better decisions at every level.

    How We Make AMP Components a Great Experience for Everyone (Including Developers!)
    Andrew Watterson, Google
    A designer from the AMP team talks about how we go from feature requests to shipping components with great documentation. We draw up many versions of a feature to match the many ways AMP is used. We sit in cafes and talk to your users about how they use the web, and make changes based on their feedback. And since you are *our* users, we want to talk to you about how you work and how future AMP components can make your sites even better.

    No power, no internet, no support: How AMP bridges the “app gap” in Iraq and other war-impacted region
    Levi Clancy, Re:Coded
    Balla Khadang, YouGov
    At the fringes of conventional considerations, users in war-impacted regions face restrictive app policies, incompatible u.x. assumptions, limited bandwidth, and little or no household electricity. AMP provides a toolkit to implement app-like, mobile-friendly, and quick-loading experiences that connect with users on the far side the “app gap” of access, infrastructure, and design. Gain a practical understanding of this poorly understood but highly impactful facet of design and implementation.

    How we migrated our entire site to AMP without the user noticing
    Andrea Rosal Rebolledo,
    AMP provided us the opportunity of improving the performance of our website. We started adding AMP version for some pages, having both AMP and non-AMP pages running together. Based on results, we decided to keep just the AMP version, which we accomplished gradually without the user noticing the changes. We ended up with an almost 100% AMP site.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it cost anything?

No - tickets are free of charge.

What language will the talks be in?

All talks are being simultaneously presented and streamed in English and Japanese.

Do I have to register for the live-stream?

No! The registration is only for on-site attendees that physically attend the conference. Come back here to this site on April 17th for a link and embed of the live-stream.

Who is the event for?

Web developers and designers who have used AMP and want to create even better AMP experiences, who haven't used AMP and are curious or want to contribute to AMP to make it better for everyone, and the web at large.

Does registering mean I am all set to attend?

Not yet. While your chances of getting a seat are pretty good, we will confirm attendees on a case-by-case basis to ensure we attract the right audience. Note that your seat is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation code.

When will I hear back if I have a spot?

We'll try to confirm you within less than a week!

What determines if I have a spot?

The AMP Conf is a mainly developer and designer focused event (read: the people actually creating AMP experiences). If you're non-technical, you may still apply but you'll have a slimmer chance of getting through (and you'll enjoy the conf less!).
