Web Directions events in 2023 and Beyond

Here's what we've got planned for 2023–we'd love to see you there, or have you speak!

Web Directions Summit

In 2023, our long running annual Web Directions Summit returns to October 26th and 27th.

Summit is a unique event, one for the whole front end and digital team, with tracks covering front end engineering, the React ecosystem, design, product management, and new in 2023, design systems and product and growth marketing.

Code Leaders

Alongside Summit this year we'll be hosting Code Leaders on October 25th. 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.


After a 4 year in-person hiatus, our long running front end engineering focussed conference, Code returns to Melbourne June 8 and 9. To celebrate our return, we're adding a new "back of the front end" track covering platform engineering, performance, security, devops and more!

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.

And, our annual extravaganza, Web Directions Summit returns to Sydney in October 2023, bigger and better than ever.
