Convince Your Boss

If you need some help convincing your manager to cover your ticket and travel expenses, the benefits of attendance below might help convince them! Prepare to learn a ton at Jamstack Conf, and take what you learn back to your team.

Dear [amazing boss],

I’d like to ask for your approval to attend Jamstack Conf 2022 taking place in San Francisco on November 7-8. There are many conferences out there, but I’ve picked this one because I feel the insights and learnings presented and discussed there are exactly what our team needs to build better, faster, and efficient web projects in order to grow our business and stay ahead of competition.

Unlike big-scale conferences which often have subpar sessions and a lot of time lost moving from one huge hall to another, Jamstack Conf is relatively small (~700 people), and specifically dedicated to frontend web developers. Back in-person after 2 years of being offered virtually only, Jamstack Conf has a strong reputation for practical sessions and hands-on workshops. In fact, speakers announced already are experts who will actually show the methods of how they work, build, and deploy.

Advantages for our company

The learnings from two conference days will help our company to:

  • Design better processes for web design, building, and deployment across teams
  • Improve performance and responsiveness of our web properties
  • Increase web security and reduce our surface area for attacks
  • Improve accessibility and flexibility of our frontend architecture

My personal advantages

I sincerely appreciate the opportunities to grow as a professional in our company, and I’m very excited about this conference because:

  • There’s an impressive line-up of experts who are working with technologies, tools and methodologies we use daily
  • Hands-on workshops with experts give me an opportunity to learn new practices and techniques and improve my skills right away
  • The friendly, intimate spirit of the conference makes it easy to interact with speakers and ask questions
  • As the conference attracts seasoned designers and developers, I’m excited to learn from a large number of professionals and discover their experiences and best practices from their projects
  • Because frontend is changing rapidly, I feel it’s important to learn what’s possible these days, and where frontend/UX are heading these days

Summary of costs (adjust accordingly)

Conference Ticket (including one workshop) $799 until Aug. 30, or $999 after
Hotel for 3 nights ~$500 ($159/night++)
Domestic Airfare ~$300
Food Included in conf ticket
Total ~$1,600

I appreciate you considering my proposal, and I hope you have a moment to take a look at the website — — and the overview of the agenda covered there. I couldn’t be more excited to attend this, and I’m quite certain that it’s a good investment in training for our entire company.

Thank you for your time,
— [your name]
