Web Directions Code://remote 2020 Australia's Professional JavaScript Development & Front End Engineering Conference

Exclusively OnlineJuly 2nd & 3rd 2020

Australia's conference for JavaScript Developers and Front End Engineers.

Re-imagined as remote-only

In response to the unique challenges of COVID-19 Web Directions Code will now take place remote only. But expect much more than just Zoom based presentations and Slack channels.

Building on the extensive work we've done with our conference presentation platform Conffab, Code://remote aims to re-imagine from the ground up the conference experience, not just port the traditional conference to the Web.

With a focus on highly engaging, expertly filmed and edited, screen-oriented presentations, alongside spaces to connect, communicate and keep in touch with everything around the conference, you'll be immersed as if you were there–maybe even more so.

Our Expert Advisors

We've assembled a team of expert advisors to help ensure we deliver the best possible remote-first experience.
