bitHound recently released a list of the top 20 JavaScript developers to follow, and two of the DMV area’s very own made the cut.

“The forces behind the magic that is JSConf, Chris Williams and Laura Williams ran not one, but two memorable JSConfs in 2015,” the post reads. The post goes on to note that, despite the fact that the Williams’ will no longer be organizing JSConf in the U.S. in 2016, they’re both the kind of movers and shakers to keep tabs on in the New Year.

The duo live in NoVa, and were recently gifted this bench by BrooklynJS to commemorate the work they’ve done in building JSConf.

The full list from bitHound mentions top members of the JS community from all over the world, including a Comcast developer that Philly highlighted here.
