Useful Talks And Videos From Web Design Conferences

Advertisement

As a Web professional, you can get great inspiration from a good conference session. While conferences may not bring value to all industries, the Web industry is stacked high with inspirational experts and quiet little geniuses beavering away from small home offices. A good Web conference shines a light on these clever souls and promotes professional growth and shared knowledge.

The number of conferences surrounding the Web design and development field continues to grow as new processes, techniques and other shared experiences, turned learning opportunities, are always presenting themselves throughout the industry. The problem becomes, with so many conferences that are out of reach for one reason or another, how does one catch the highlights from the conference that won’t fit into a 140 character tweet?

Luckily, more and more conferences are turning to video to capture their events to not only preserve the experience, but to pass it on to those who could not attend. So there are more chances than ever for Web professionals to stay abreast of all the latest industry talks and tips even when they can’t make it to a particular conference in person. We have gathered some inspiring resources and conference talks in this post, just in case you missed them or needed the refresher.

Bringing The Conferences To You

As a conference organiser, getting the word out about a conference can be as difficult as it is important. Lanyrd1 is great for the social element, and Eventbrite2 is a no-brainer as the ticket gateway. But what about after the event?

How do you reach the audience that you missed initially? How do you effectively expand the reach of your conference’s most poignant and potent talks? A number of sites have sprung up collating all of this wonderful content. Each with their own take on curating a library of conference videos.

Organized Wonder

Organized Wonder3 is a true oasis to find great content. The platform lets you discover the best talks, documentaries, interviews, short films and various other videos across the Web, and you can follow people you admire and share the content you value with others.

Taking a community/social approach to curated conference video, users are able to post video and receive followers, much like Twitter. Organized Wonder is the brainchild of Sawyer Hollenshead4 and features not only conference video, but also interviews and documentaries relevant to the Web industry.

However, the Website’s conference listing is not very comprehensive.

    You mentioned O’Reilly Velocity but O’Reilly Fluent is even more relevant to Smashing Magazine (since it’s Web browsers, JavaScript, and HTML5) :-)

    A selection of some of the talks from May: Brendan Eich – JavaScript at 17, Nicole Sullivan – Don’t Feed The Trolls, Paul Irish – JavaScript Development Workflow of 2013, Ben Galbraith & Dion Almaer, “Web vs. Apps”, Ward Cunningham – “Federated Wiki Mashes Data in Your Browser”.

  2. 2

    WOW, what a list!

    Even scanning the most interesting parts for me is extensive. But I definitely will take the time :)

  3. 3

    Seriously, just made my day. What a great roundup of talks. I’ve actually seen a few of these before and the talk by David on data visualizations played a huge part in our company – in how we push analytics out the door to users. Again, great roundup!

  4. 4

    Wow! I’m honored for my talk at Valio Con to be included in the list. Thank you so much for including my talk.

  5. 5

    Fantastic List, thanks :}

    Re your listing for Webstock

    You have linked to a Romanian conference called Webstock and, presumably, taken the blurb from their site.

    Yet the talks listed are from Webstock in New Zealand. The two conferences have nothing to do with each other beyond the (copied) name by the Romanian conference.

    It would be appreciated if you could please fix this.

  7. 7

    Thanks for this great resource! However, can you please fix the link and description for Webstock: you’ve got talks from the NZ-based, original Webstock (www.webstock.org.nz / http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Webstock), yet the description of and link to some conference in Romania that began years later, and appears to be trading off the name of the original.

  8. 8

    Would you please consider adding TechTalks.tv to the list? We are building a platform for educational presentations, live workshops and slide-based videos. I think we have some great content that your viewers would find very compelling. Thanks! Jason

  9. 9

    Past year I was searching for this kind of presentations and talks. Thanks a ton for sharing very useful talks and videos.

  10. 10

    Awesome compilation, I never heard from some of them.

    Thanks!

  11. 11

    Awesome list, wish I could slow down time to watch every single one of them before it is 2013.

  12. 12

    Great post just what I need for my ear during my work.

  13. 13

    These are great, thanks! You forgot my favorite conference video site: FORA.tv (www.fora.tv) and there are plenty of web design related videos here too: http://fora.tv/search?q=%22web+design%22

  14. 14

    Awesome. These are great resources, especially since you can’t make every conference, or see every speaker at the conferences.

    E4H (http://environmentsforhumans.com/) is a great resource for online conferences. I have been attending their events for years. They also provide you with recordings afterwards in case you missed anything. Right now I am attending the 4th Annual JavaScript Summit and the talks have been so informative!

  16. 16

    If you want to explore more videos directly from Front-Trends conference, not Ontwik, please visit http://vimeo.com/user9986068.

    Congratulations for an amazing list!

    As one of hundreds millions of deaf and hard of hearing people, I cannot follow any of online conference videos unless they are accompanied with good quality captions. YouTube auto captions are not acceptable as they are not a “final” product and need to be either cleaned up manually or replaced by professionally done captions. Captioned videos are part of web accessibility requirements. If conference organizers care about accessibility, I would highly appreciate it that they make all of their aural information accessible. Jared Spool makes all of podcasts on his website accessible via transcripts, for example. They also benefit hearing people and improve search results of websites. I wrote an article about the importance of captioning accessibility: http://audio-accessibility.com/news/2012/07/big-design-conference-2012-and-empathy/. Thanks!

    Fantastic list regarding various web conferencing tools. In addition to above, one can even consider deploying on premise web conferencing appliance such as RHUB appliances in order to conduct company trainings, online meetings, online webinars, seminars, online presentations etc.

  19. 19

    Hi, there is also http://www.everytalk.tv. It covers a lot of conferences related to Ruby, Javascript, Erlang, Python etc. It also has a playlist feature which allows users to discover and then consume it at their pace.

  20. 20

    Thanks for compiling this fantastic list of videos.Truly awesome collection. Bookmarked.!
