Web con­fer­ences are a great way to lis­ten and learn and this year’s Gen­er­ate Lon­don (19th-21st Septem­ber) is no dif­fer­ent. It has a su­perb line-up of well-es­tab­lished, up­com­ing and spot-on speak­ers who will im­part their words of wis­dom and pass on their vast bank of knowl­edge.

So what does Gen­er­ate Lon­don 2018 have to of­fer? It has 16 speak­ers and three work­shops spread over three days, all hosted at the im­pres­sive The Royal In­sti­tu­tion. You can catch a quick glimpse of the lo­ca­tion at venue.rigb.org/.

Key­note speak­ers in­clude Web Stan­dards Love­god (his words not ours) Bruce Law­son; su­per-smart de­signer Sarah Par­menter; fron­tend ge­nius Sara Souei­dan; and the cre­ator of the web’s most pop­u­lar 3D li­brary — Three.js — Ri­cardo Ca­bello AKA Mr. Doob.

Keep­ing this il­lus­tri­ous se­lec­tion of web gu­rus and ex­pe­ri­ence mak­ers com­pany are AR/VR evan­ge­list Alexan­dra Eti­enne; Re­act Academy founder Kris­ti­jan Ris­tovski; dig­i­tal artist Marpi Mar­ci­nowski; Asem­bler cre­ative de­vel­oper Steven Roberts; Clear­left co­founder Richard Rut­ter; Code­pen se­nior soft­ware en­gi­neer Cas­sidy Wil­liams; and UX con­sul­tant Laura Yarrow. Head to

gen­er­ate­conf.com/lon­don/speak­ers to see the com­plete line-up.

So what are the key sub­jects that the speak­ers are con­cen­trat­ing on in 2018? Nat­u­rally, there’s a strong fo­cus on core de­sign and de­vel­op­ment pro­cesses, but you’ll also be able to take a closer look at the tech­nolo­gies that are shap­ing to­day’s and to­mor­row’s web ex­pe­ri­ences. Three. js cre­ator Ri­cardo Ca­bello will be giv­ing an overview of the cur­rent state of the APIS and how to start­ing build­ing your first VR and AR projects with Three.js. AR/ VR evan­ge­list Alexan­dra Eti­enne will be re­veal­ing the ad­van­tages that web-based AR can bring, and what you can do with Ar.js li­brary. Else­where, Web Stan­dards Love­god Bruce Law­son will be talk­ing web stan­dards and the mind­set re­quired to be a ‘shokunin’ of the web. What’s a ‘shokunin’ of the web? Head to the Gen­er­ate site for more info. And fron­tend UI de­vel­oper Sara Souei­dan will be ex­tra busy tak­ing on a talk and a work­shop. Her work­shop ‘Fron­tend Meets UX: De­sign­ing & Cre­at­ing Univer­sal UI Com­po­nents’ will

teach best UX con­sid­er­a­tions and prac­tices, and help you ap­ply those lessons so you can work your way through build­ing com­po­nents.

There is so much more to see and learn, but you’d bet­ter hurry: there are only a few days left for you to get your ticket and join this smor­gas­bord of web tal­ent. Head to bit.ly/2pvvu0f to get yours. See you there.
