share this article

2022 is already shaping up to be an exciting year. If one of your New Year’s resolutions is attending more web development events and conferences, welcome to the club. In this post, we will keep a list of some of the most interesting events for web developers happening this year.

FlutterVikings in Oslo

When: 2-3 February

Where: online

Price: free

As the biggest nordic Flutter conference, Flutter Vikings is high up on our list of interesting events. It’ll happen twice this year, too: fully online on the 2nd and 3rd of February, then both in person and online in the summer. To attend the online part, you must book a free ticket. The in person part requires an investment of NOK 4,000-5,000. While the conference’s full program isn’t available yet, you can check out the speaker profiles (and, in some cases, the abstracts for their talks) on the event website.

JSWORLD in Amsterdam

When: 9-11 February

Where: Amsterdam and online

Price: free or € 314,54-1.069,58

This huge JavaScript conference will have 3000+ attendees and 40+ speakers. It takes place over 3 full days, and you can access the talks online for free, or attend in person with a paid ticket. On February 9th, the theme of the day will be broad: all things JavaScript. The 10th and 11th, on the other hand, are focused on Vue.js. To learn more, check out the event’s program.

CityJS in London

When: 23-25 March

Where: London and online

Price: £50-150

This JavaScript conference actually takes part in six locations around the globe: in India, Greece, Nigeria, Brazil, Singapore and the UK. To learn more about each of them, you can visit the event website. We will focus on the London conference. The call for papers for CityJS is ongoing and will end on January 15, which means that the full lineup of speakers isn’t available yet. However, experts such as Shruti Kapoor from PayPal and Ada Rose Cannon from Samsung have already been featured on the website.

SmashingConf in San Francisco

When: 28-31 March

Where: San Francisco

Price: $649-1,497

Advertised as a friendly, inclusive event, this conference is ready for only 300-400 attendees, so it may be best to snatch a ticket quickly. Organized at Fort Mason in San Francisco, SmashingConf promises 13 speakers and 8 deep dive workshops, with topics focused on real world problems, practical solutions, and shortcuts for getting things done. Rather than presentations with slides, you should expect live sessions dedicated to refactoring, debugging, sketching, and more. The conference’s main theme are front-end and UX, but any web developer or designer is likely to enjoy it, and return home with actionable insights.

API Conference in the Hague

When: 4-6 April

Where: the Hague and online

Price: €494-1389

JSConf Budapest

When: 2-3 June

Where: Budapest

This non-profit conference, organized by the JavaScript community for the community, has been a long time coming! The original call for papers ended in April of 2021. The conference was pushed back by a year due to covid-19. You can check out the speakers and their topics on the event website.

CSS Day in Amsterdam

When: 9-10 June

Where: Amsterdam

Price: not announced

Much like JSConf, CSS Day was also postponed – twice! Originally planned for 2020, then moved to 2021, it’s finally happening in 2022. The organizers promise expert-level talks and interesting topics. The (incomplete) list of speakers is up on the event website. We’re eager to see the community meet again after so long, and we’re cheering the CSS Day team in their efforts to provide opportunities for both learning and enjoyment during the event.
