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.
When Jeffrey Zeldman wanted to start publishing books, Jeremy Keith (HTML5 For Web Designers: Return Of The Standards) was the person he turned to first. You, along with 157,000 followers, might also know him as @adactio - a fantastic author, speaker, and one of the organizers of the dConstruct Conference. Jeremy lives in Brighton, England, where he makes websites for the design agency Clearleft.
Without a doubt, this Ústí nad Orlicí native deserves to be called the queen of Czech design - an unofficial title she's held for the last 10 years. She worked on the design of the iPhone and iPod, NASA's Mars Rover, Seimens' phones, and spent several years at the California-based design studio, Ideo. And all before the age of 30.
Cennydd Bowles is an independent digital product designer with over 13 years of experience in the industry. He was also the very first designer hired by Twitter outside the US. During his time there, he was responsible for the design of Tweetdeck 2.0 and 3.0, and helped to establish the global design priorities of Twitter. He’s also worked as a senior user experience designer at Clearleft.
Anna is a freelance front-end developer based in the UK. She was awarded Young Developer of the Year by Netmag in 2013. When she's not playing on them, she's researching the browsers on game consoles. She's a technical editor at A List Apart, and also published a book on Front-End Style Guides.
Independent graphic designer and front-end web developer
Paul is an independent graphic designer and front-end developer, whose clients include BBC, Unicef UK and eBay. When he’s not writing for publications like net magazine, A List Apart and 24 Ways, he can be found working on side projects (he’s currently digitizing George Bradshaw's railway guide) or blathering on Twitter.
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.
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.
The oldest permanently-operated cinema in Europe, whose stage hundreds of movie stars have graced during movie premieres.
Nearly a century-old, this hall has played premieres of Czech and International art films since 2004.
This stage has seen the likes of Voskovec and Werich perform their famous Liberated Theater (Prague Free Theater) and launched the careers of many movie stars.
Lucerna Music Bar
One of the most prestigious music clubs in Prague, located in the Lucerna passage.
Lucerna’s Marble Hall
The true gem of Lucerna, one of Prague's most beautiful halls.
