Web development is common today. This is still an art, but it is no surprise to anyone that a person writes code and thus creates a software product. But everyone is delighted when they see increasingly sophisticated and productive sites, PWA or applications. The question is: how do developers manage to create more and more interesting products? The answer lies in research and innovation. And they are talked about at conferences. So, what web development conferences will be the best in 2020?

Web development as part of the future

The lion's share of current projects begins with the web universe. Startups are very often popularized through websites, information about new products is brought through forums, communication with developers is provided by applications. That’s why web development and everything connected with it is one of the paths to the future.

But how to go there correctly? Meetings with new people at conferences are an integral part. Many developers go to summits just for the sake of it. But web development conferences are more than just a meeting of experts.

First of all, this is a chance to learn about new research by authors of popular libraries and frameworks. In other words - you will learn about the necessary changes in the code firsthand. In addition, this is a chance to practice not at the workplace or at home, but among many developers who may have radically different approaches.

During one workshop, you can learn how to develop a web application two to three times faster. Thanks to the 10-minute conversation, you can see the key testing errors. One video presented at someone’s talk may open up previously unknown integration options for you.
