Web directions code 2012 review & slides

25 May 2012

I was at Web Directions Code 2012 the last two days and it was an absolute blast.

Web Directions have pretty much perfected the web conference / event hosting thing. #wdc12 has been my best event out of 5 of their previous events that I've managed to attend.

The highlights

  • Single track - no FUUUUUU I wish I could attend all 3 sessions in their multi-track events
  • Location - Was right next door to my work in the RACV buildiing, Melbourne CBD
  • Seating - more informal with 8 to a round table spread across the hall
  • Free Blackberry playbook!
  • Speakers / Topics - Both the HTML5 and JS days had a great lineup and mix of deep-dive and broader coverage of things.

I came away inspired and armed with practical things I could do right away with my projects and also an appetite to try things like Websockets & NodeJS, Client side templates, HTML5 hooks for game development and lots more.

Maxine & John will no doubt be putting up the all the slides and eventually the videos as well.

In the meantime here's 9 out of the 22 presentation slide decks from the last 2 days.
