The Best Events For Web Developers in 2022

Jeff James
February 11th, 2022

With the pandemic still wreaking havoc on the in-person event world in 2021, many people in the web development community are anxious to see what 2022 will bring.  While we expect to see an increase in physical events, virtual and hybrid-style events will likely still dominate the first half of the year.

No matter the format, we’re excited to see the development community springing to life with a myriad of interesting conferences, workshops, and more.  We believe events are a crucial part of personal and professional growth as they are amazing places to gather knowledge and new learnings, to meet like-minded people to network with and develop bonds within the community, and to stay on top of industry trends and direction.

Note: Before we get into the actual events, please note that these dates are all subject to change due to the ongoing pandemic. What you see here is the most current info we had at publication about these events. It’s always a good idea to check with specific event organizers directly for the most current dates and schedules.
