Programs for conferences take a long time to come together. Sometimes we’ve been working with someone to have them come to speak for years, waiting for the stars tho align. Other times a quick email and reply and we’ve lined up a speaker in a matter of hours, or even (very rarely) minutes!
Then there’s the call for presentations aspect – we always want these to go as far and wide as possible, and find new speakers, with fresh ideas. Sadly many have to miss out, often not because they wouldn’t be great presentations, but simply because they don’t quite fit the program this time around.
But once all that effort is done, all those hours of research, emailing, Skype calls, programs are usually announced in one go.
Today we are really excited to announce the program for Code ’18, taking place in Melbourne August 1 and 2.
But for now, we just want to highlight a few of the speakers, several speaking for the first time in Australia
- Sara Soueidan, one of our most popular speakers ever, returns, to focus on Using CSS (and SVG) for the Good of UX
- Someone we’ve been keen to get come speak for a long time now, Maximilliano Firtman, will uncover more of the secret of Progressive Web Apps (we’ll also have related sessions on making better off-line experiences, and using system notifications well within web apps)
- Mandy Michael, who is now speaking at events around the world will make the case for a better focus on the foundation of all Web development, HTML
- Mark Zeman will consider Meaningful UX performance metrics and how to improve them.
- Hui Jing Chen, a very popular speaker around the world, will look at the layout capabilities of CSS in 2018, and the brave new world off design they enable.
All alongside sessions on a broad range of topics of relevance to front end developers from Junior to Senior.
