What is Code?
Australia's Front End Engineering Conference
Like all our events, Code features a mix of renowned international speakers, and local experts, all sharing deep experience of real world projects.
Code Leaders Conference
This year, for the first time, we'll be running Code Leaders on 2 August - the day before Code itself: a single-day event focusing the challenges facing engineering decision makers and leaders.
With an emphasis on the architectural and strategic aspects of core Web technologies, alongside issues in growing and leading great teams, Code Leaders is the perfect complement to Code. Read more about Code Leaders.
Send a team of five or more to Code and you'll receive a complimentary place at Code Leaders for someone on your team, as well as a complementary upgrade to a Silver Code ticket. Simply book five or more attendees, with the code Team and we'll get in touch for details as to who'll be attending Code Leaders.
Can't make it to Melbourne?
If you focus on front end engineering and development, and can't make it to Melbourne in August, then don't despair, Web Directions Summit, in Sydney in November is a two track event for the whole team, with a track especially devoted to front end development.

Out of any conference, Web Directions is far and away our favourite
founder Campaign Monitor
Co-founded and now run by John Allsopp, Web Directions has for over a decade brought together leading developers, engineers, visual, IxD, UX and product designers, Art and Creative Directors, 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.
In 2017, we'll be organising Respond in Sydney and Melbourne, Transform in Canberra, AI in Sydney, Code in Melbourne, and Web Directions Summit in Sydney.
John Allsopp has been working on the Web for over 20 years. He's been responsible for innovative developer tools such as Style Master, X-Ray and many more. He's spoken at numerous conferences around the World and delivered dozens of workshops in that time as well.
His writing includes two books, including Developing With Web Standards and countless articles and tutorials in print and online publications.
His "A Dao of Web Design" published in 2000 is cited by Ethan Marcotte as a key influence in the development of Responsive Web Design, who's rightly acclaimed article in 2010 begins by quoting John in detail, and by Jeremy Keith as "a manifesto for anyone working on the Web".
