Web Directions Year round learning for web and digital professionals

Web Directions Code wrap up and slides

The first ever Web Directions Code really could not have been better. It was so great to bring something new to Melbourne and for it to be an out of the box success, and to meet so many interested and active developers from across the street, across the ditch, and across the globe. Big thanks to everyone who was there, as well as all our speakers. Here’s a couple of nice write ups that have their own collections of resources and notes:

In a couple of weeks time we hope to have some videos online, so watch this space, but in the meantime I thought I’d also share with you all the links and resources from each of the presentations. Not the same as being there of course :)
