Idea of the Week: Web Directions Alumni
Those of you who have seen the Scroll Magazine we produced for our Code 16 conference (and if you haven’t, you should) will have noticed that we published a list of all our speakers and their topics at previous Code conferences.
That resulted in a list of 80+ presentations and a bit of a who’s who of web coding, programming, engineering over the preceding five years. We’ve reproduced the list below.
Now, when it came to Direction 16, we had to decide how we would handle this idea, if at all.
Long story short, we decided we would do it, so the Direction 16 edition of Scroll has a pretty amazing list of over 300 presentations from 2006 to 2015, but this time sorted in alphabetical order of speaker name so it’s easy to see who has addressed the conference more than once.
As a point of curiosity, there’s just one speaker who has given five talks at Web Directions during that period. Care to guess?
In any case, have a browse of our previous Code speakers below and make sure you get a copy of the Direction 16 edition of Scroll – all conference and workshop attendees receive a free print edition (88 bound pages of articles and interviews with full colour photos and illustrations) while it will also be available for digital download post-conference.
