I’m proud to announce — for the third year running — the return of All Day Hey!, an affordable full-day conference for designers & front-end developers, taking place on Friday 3rd May at Everyman Leeds.
Following last years sell-out success we’re returning to Everyman Cinema in the heart of Leeds with another fantastic line-up, accessible ticket prices and extended support for the community via Diversity Tickets. We’re keeping the line-up under wraps for a little bit longer but you can grab the early bird tickets now, priced at £79.
As always, these conferences take a lot of effort, but nothing makes it more worth it than the excitement during the build-up, and of course, the buzz circulating the room when the big day comes around.
Working alongside the Leeds International Festival, we've curated a conference that embodies the very best of web technologies and front-end development. The event takes place in a 230 seat state-of-the-art cinema, where we invite industry professionals from around the world to speak and inspire.
We’re also over the moon that we’re welcoming back Phil Hawksworth to MC the conference. Phil has helped us craft a community-driven conference from the very start, and we’re continually grateful for his support. We’re getting ready to announce the full line-up soon, but expect industry professionals delivering talks to educate and inspire. In previous years we’ve had talks from the likes of Jeremy Keith, Rachel Andrew, Alice Bartlett, Una Kravets, Ashley Baxter, Jake Archibald and many more!
This year we're making a small number of Diversity Tickets available to our community. The community is essential to the conference and Hey! in general. Over the years myself and all the amazing volunteers have created a space which encourages anyone from any background to come and share their experiences, whether they're an attendee coming for the first time or one of our speakers on stage.
To promote more diversity across our audience, we're offering tickets to those who feel they fall into an underrepresented group a chance to attend the conference free of charge. If you feel like you are a member of an underrepresented group in technology (this includes, but is not limited to: people of colour, LGBTQIA+ people, women and disabled people), then please get in touch about attending.
We'll be announcing the complete line-up very soon, along with more information about the post-conference social. If this all sounds right up your street, head over to the conference site and grab a ticket before they get snapped up! If you’ve got a question about the conference or anything else for that matter, feel free to drop me tweet or email.
