UI5con – the first ever conference focusing on SAPUI5/OpenUI5 took place on 11th March 2016 in Frankfurt. UI5con is driven by the community and not solely by SAP folks.
I was pleased that my proposal for a session was accepted and hence got one of the eligible 80 seats. The demand was so high, that the UI5con was sold out within less than an hour and more than 150 people put themselves on the waiting list.
There were several top-class sessions, have a look at the agenda of the UI5con. All in all a fantastic community event and it was great to meet people personally, which you so far only did known virtually or perhaps as author of important UI5 git commits.

The most interesting part of the session are not the slides, but the live coding I did to develop this most basic application from ground including database access with Mongoose, backend with express.js/Node.js and frontend with OpenUI5. With the help of tools like WebStorm, npm, gulp and bower.
As most of the session have been recorded, so this one, there is still a hope that you can watch the session and live coding. Hopefully the recording will be soon available. Until then you can watch other great session at the dedicated YouTube Playlist:
A nice recap of the UI5con was done by Kimmo Jokinen.
