Announcing second Web European Conference

We did it in October 2012, and we are doing it again: we are organizing the 2nd Web European Conference for Spring 2015, somewhere in Italy.

The conference will be about Modern Web Development, no matter which platform: .NET, Node.js, Ruby, JavaScript.

Our Manifesto

Modern web development is moving away from all the enterprisey features that used to rule the world of development in the past years, and is going toward a more light-weight and simple approach.

  • Code Craftsmanship: Developers are taking back the control, of the code they write, on how they write and on which tools make them productive.
  • Tiny assemblable frameworks: Gone are the huge monolithic frameworks from one vendor: Modern Web Apps are a mix and match of different frameworks, technologies and languages.
  • BYOT: Bring Your Own Tool: Modern Web Development is about productivity the way you want it, not the way the vendor wants it to be.
  • Mobile First: Web sites are now mostly viewed on mobile devices: web sites and apps must be built with that in mind.

Call for presenters

To make an awesome conference we need awesome speakers, and today we are also launching the call for presenters: if you want to propose a talk that matches the ideas of our Manifest, you can already submit your proposal. Go on our Github account, fork the c4p repository, add your proposal and submit a pull request.

Call for sponsors

And we also need awesome partners and sponsors: if your company embraces our manifesto, and want to be part of this conference, please contact us via the contact form available on our website.

Call for volunteers

Finally, if you cannot give a speech but still want to be part of this event, we need you anyway: if you want to volunteer on the day of the event helping with registration, video recordings, time-keeping or also want to help before the event, with the site and the organization process, please contact us via the contact form available on our website.
