This was my 7th year in attending Web Directions, now known as Direction. A two-day conference (plus masterclasses) with inspiring design talks and passionate attendees. It's my personal favourite and how my career was launched in Sydney.
As I did in the past, here is a series of speaker and MC portraits I took during the conference. Missed it? Don't worry, Ben Buchanan compiled a large list of notes for you. The ending keynote is also available as a post-speech transcript with slides, arranged by the amazing Maciej Ceglowski.
Special thanks to all the attendees, speakers, volunteers, venue and conference organisers who made this event possible and awe-striking this year.
This year, the awespiring, thought provoking and insightful conference Web Directions is held at Seymour Centre near the University of Sydney, where I am based. We have worked closely with the conference organisers John and Maxine to record the event as complete as possible. On Thursday, my camera left a trail of visual memories encoded in these pixels.
You can see the program schedule here. Talks are (mostly) recorded, and will be progressively made available online starting mid November.
