Web Directions events in 2022 and Beyond

Web Directions delivers a mix of in-person and online events.

In person events

Web Directions Summit

In 2022, our long running annual Web Directions Summit returns to Sydney December 1 and 2.

Covering our traditional front-end engineering, design and product management, this year we'll also feature a content design and strategy track, a React ecosystem track and a junior developer focussed track–as always featuring world leading speakers.

Code Leaders

Alongside Summit this year we'll be hosting Code Leaders on November 30th. Designed for engineering and development leaders, senior developers, lead engineers, engineering managers, CTOs. Combining technical, management and ledership session if you're responsible for building and leading teams, and making strategic decisions about the technologies your company or organisations uses, Code Leaders is designed for you.

Online events

In 2022 we will again host 6 unique online conferences for front end developers, plus Remixed, a free event that brings together some of the highlights from the previous year.

Our online conferences focus on Front End Development, with each going deep on a particular topic area–CSS, JavaScript, performance, Web App development, Accessibility, and Privacy/Security/Identity. Attend one, or more, or all–a whole year's learning–for a fraction of the price, and the effort of attending, an in-person conference.

About Us

Co-founded and now run by John Allsopp, Web Directions has for over 15 years brought together leading developers, engineers, visual, IxD, UX and product designers, Art and Creative Directors, product managers indeed everyone involved in producing web and digital products to learn from one another, and the World's leading experts across this vast field.

We spend our lives thinking about what comes next, keeping up with trends in technology, practices and processes, and filtering the hype, to make sure you don't miss trends that matter, and don't waste time on hype that doesn't.

We promise attending one of our events will leave you significantly better versed in the challenges you face day to day, and in solutions for addressing them.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we're switching things up a bit for 2020, 2021 (and beyond). We're delivering 6 highly focussed front end development conferences online.

And, our annual extravaganza, Web Directions Summit returns to Sydney in December 2022, bigger and better than ever.
