Future of Web Design (FOWD) is an energy-filled, inspirational conference for web designers, front-end developers, and anyone working to make the web incredible. It focuses on the emerging practices and technologies in web design that will enable you to stay ahead of the curve.
FOWD begins with a day of workshops, followed by two days of sessions, networking activities, and creative challenges to nourish your brain and leave you feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your next big project.
On the Main Stage track, you will hear from some of the brightest stars in web design on topics as diverse as UX, responsive design, CSS, web performance, and workflow, as well as inspirational keynotes to get your creative juices flowing.
The Rising Stars track is dedicated to the up-and-coming stars of tomorrow. FOWD hand-picks the people doing awesome things on the web and gives them a chance to share their knowledge with a wider audience during the conference.
Both tracks cover a healthy mix of technical and inspirational content, and you can switch between sessions as often as you like, so there will always be something to see!
