We have just opened registrations for Web Directions Code 17!
The last time we held Code solely in Melbourne in 2015 at the same venue, we sold out quite some way in advance. We’ve kept the prices at 2015’s, so make sure you don’t miss out, register your ticket today.
Whether you call yourself a coder, a programmer, a developer or an engineer – if your job is to deliver robust, fast, secure, engaging web experiences, Web Directions Code in Melbourne from 3-4 August is for you.
We have an extraordinary line-up of speakers planned for Code: people who can lift your professional expertise to new levels, familiarising you now with techniques and tools that will become commonplace in the near future.
Right now, we can confirm two of our leading speakers, and they are, indeed, world leaders in their fields.
Val Head is one of the foremost experts in animation and the web anywhere. She’s written extensively on the subject, advised companies like Shopify and Automattic (creators of WordPress) and spoken all over the world. Val will survey the full spectrum of animation options from CSS to React Motion and show which are best suited for implementing state transitions, showing data, animating illustrations, or making animations responsive.
We Want You to Present
Our Call For Proposals to present at Code is now open. Yes, we curate the conference, but we like to leave room for outstanding, relevant talks from local speakers, experienced or not.
Sessions are 20 minutes long, and open to Australian residents. If you’re successful, we’ll fly you to Melbourne, put you up, and treat you like any other speaker.
The Code CFP is open until 31 May.
We’re also really excited to take the wraps off a brand new event, Code Leaders, a special day-long conference preceding Code.
Code Leaders highlights the challenges being faced by a new generation of code-focused team leaders, project managers, CTOs and senior engineering professionals.
The full-day conference draws on the skills and experience of some of our Code headliners as well as local expertise to explore issues of management and leadership in a code setting.
You’ll focus on technology, practice, leadership and cultural challenges in a collegial atmosphere with others facing challenges similar to your own.

Embedded as a deeply Melbourne conference (and watch out soon for details of related Melbourne events), I feel this year’s Web Directions Code offers an unmissable program, one of the real highlights of the Australian developer calendar.
I look forward to telling you more in coming weeks, and I really hope to see you there.
