Web Directions Code Leaders 2022

SydneyNovember 30

Creating world class engineering teams and cultures

What is Code Leaders?

Running in conjunction with our annual Summit Code Leaders focuses on what senior engineering decision makers need to know about right now.

As the things we build and the teams and organisations that build them become ever more complex, technical knowledge and capabilities simply aren't enough. Code Leaders is designed for engineering and development leaders, senior developers, lead engineers, engineering managers, CTOs. It doesn't matter so much what your role is called, 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.

Code Leaders takes place over a single, intensive day, and features real world experts addressing key challenges of technology, leadership and developing, maintaining and growing great engineering teams.

Applicable real world knowledge

Tapping into the expertise of speakers at Summit, taking place the following two days, we'll cover key developments in front end engineering and beyond, from JavaScript and Node.js to performance, security, a11y and more. Leaders combines all this with sessions on creating, maintaining and growing a great team and inclusive, diverse cultures - and getting the most from your team.

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 retns to Sydney in December 2022, bigger and better than ever.
