Upcoming Web Design Events (Jun. 2014 – Dec. 2014)

Upcoming Web Design Events (Jun. 2014 – Dec. 2014)

This year has brought a number of changes in the conference scene around the world. Quite a few established conferences have taken their last bow, and a whole bunch of new conferences have appeared — and I’m not just talking about the Smashing conferences! There’s even a conference for developing applications of the not-yet-released Google Glass.

Many exciting conferences have already featured some of the industry’s most illustrious speakers in the first half of 2014, however, there are quite a few more to come! Take a look at today’s round-up of conferences taking place this year from June onwards, and remember, since most events are a bit light on the design aspect, it may be a good idea to visit those conferences that focus specifically on visual and artistic technologies.

Conferences are about gathering information and knowledge, but also opportunities to get to know other like-minded folks in the web design community. Keep in mind that there’s always a benefit to attending any event, and a strong chance that you’ll be exposed to a large amount of new information, so be prepared to absorb the latest techniques brought to you by distinguished authors and speakers!

Also, I’d like to thank everyone for leaving comments in the previous round-up — they were truly helpful! I admit, I may have missed or forgotten to mention a conference (or two) in today’s round-up, but please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below in the comments section and I’ll be sure to add it on to this list as soon as possible!

The list is quite lengthy, so let’s dive in.
