I'm Attending!June 04, 2020June 05, 2020Web Directions CodeUTCWeb Directions Code, running since 2012, is Australia's leading front end development conference.
It's a single track event, with a mixture of invited presentations and presentations drawn from our CFP.
## What we look for
In short–what are aspects of developing front ends that everyone should know, or would benefit from learning more about?
Traditionally Web Directions events have focussed on core enabling technologies
- DOM/Browser APIs (particularly newer APIs such as web payments, cryptom web components)
and related foundational technologies like SVG and ARIA.
on core engineering patterns and practices around
and on computer science concepts such as
- garbage collection
- functional programming
In particular we have typically stayed away from specific solutions, whether open source or commercial, no matter how widely used and popular they might currently be. How to do X with Angular, or React for example is well served elsewhere and unlikely to be accepted for our conferences.
We are for the most part looking for shorter, 20 minute sessions. This format typically suits very focussed presentations, that zoom in on a single idea or concept. And, to have the best possible chance of having your proposal accepted, understanding the sort of content we focus on is key.
