WebExpo2015

8th Annual Conference For (Not Only) Web Professionals

September 19th – 20th 2015

Who will be attending?

We’ll be unveiling the full program for this year’s conference very soon, but you can expect the schedule to include more than 70 presentations by digital experts from around the world. And when we say experts, we mean it. Jeremy Keith, Andy Hume, Anna Debenham, and Cennydd Bowles (just to name a few) are already hard at work on their keynotes.

Jeremy Keith

Jeremy Keith (GB)

Front-end Developer at Clearleft Development

Jeremy Keith lives in Brighton, England where he makes websites with the splendid design agency Clearleft. You may know him from such books as DOM Scripting: JavaScript’s New Hope, Bulletproof Ajax: The Browser Strikes Back, and HTML5 For Web Designers: Return Of The Standards. He’s the curator of the dConstruct conference as well as Brighton SF, and he organised the world’s first Science Hack Day. He also made the website Huffduffer to allow people to make podcasts of found sounds—it’s like Instapaper for audio files. Hailing from Erin’s green shores, Jeremy maintains his link to Irish traditional music running the community site The Session. He also indulges a darker side of his bouzouki-playing in the band Salter Cane. Jeremy spends most of his time goofing off on the internet, documenting his time-wasting on adactio.com, where he has been writing for over ten years.

I felt placing the halls in several different locations was absolutely brilliant - much better than spending every day in the same building. It was great to meet people on the streets with their badges - it made the whole event feel like a festival.

All around excellent event! Every lecture I attended was brilliant. Furthermore, the organizers of WebExpo were incredibly positive and always had a smile on their faces.

Terrific conference! I never once had the feeling that things weren’t running smoothly.

Where will we meet?

Our decision to use different venues in Prague’s Old Town was met with praise from both speakers and attendees last year. That’s why we’ve decided to use the same setup again for WebExpo 2015! This year’s venues are even closer together to make getting from one presentation to another a breeze.

Lucerna Cinema

The oldest permanently operated cinema in Europe, hundreds of movie stars stood on its stage at movie premieres.

Světozor Cinema

Nearly a century-old hall, which has played premieres of Czech and International art films since 2004.

ABC Theater

Voskovec and Werich played the Liberated Theatre on the stage and many movie stars began their career here.

Lucerna Music Bar

One of the most prestigious music clubs in Prague, right in the Lucerna passage.

Lucerna’s Marble Hall

The true gem of Lucerna, one of the Prague's most beautiful halls.
