About

The Frontend Conference Zurich is a two-day double-track conference
  • 2 Days
  • 2 Tracks
  • 4 Workshops
  • 22+ Speakers
  • 400 Attendees

After six successful editions from 2011 to 2016, we are back in 2017, continuing our work to establish the event as Switzerland’s leading conference on state-of-the-art frontend and UX technologies. The conference is an excellent platform for Swiss and European researchers, developers and designers to present their projects, latest research and technologies in the fields of Web technologies, Web design and UX.

We’ll offer an opportunity to network with and learn from peers and leading experts in their fields, with contributions both from practitioners and academics alike. Zurich, conveniently located in the heart of Europe, with its universities and flourishing IT sector, is the ideal location for the conference.

Organization

With the “Frontend Conference Association” as organizer and legal body, we strive to develop the relationship and exchange between local and international professionals interested in frontend technologies and UX, hereby emphasizing the importance of the according fields and the relevance of Zurich as a major IT hub.

The “Frontend Conference Association” is a non-profit association, run by web professionals in their spare (and unpaid) time. The web design community has been good to us and we think this is a good way to return the favor.

We see our conference as a community event and a great opportunity to meet and learn from brilliant people. That’s why we try to keep ticket prices a low as possible to make an event that is affordable for everyone. On top of that we have a free live stream of both tracks and all talks and offer the videos online for free only a few days after the talks are finished.

Code of Conduct

The short version: Be respectful towards other people, respectfully ask people to stop if you are bothered, and if you can’t resolve an issue contact staff. If you are being a problem, it will be apparent and you’ll be asked to leave. Read the long version.
