What sets Fluent apart?

Breadth: Unlike other web programming conferences that focus on just one community, platform or language, Fluent offers a comprehensive approach to the modern web, so you can both broaden your skill set and delve deeper into the tools you use.

Insights-driven: Fluent is a forward-thinking web programming and web performance conference; you’ll find solutions for the problems of today while exploring what's next.

Expert access: You’ll meet senior technologists from leading companies as well independents who are moving the web forward with new libraries, platforms, tools, and open source projects.

Intensive training courses

Immerse yourself in two days of in-depth education on critical web programming topics at Fluent. Each training course takes place June 11-12 and is limited in size to maintain a high level of learning and instructor interaction.


The conference will take place at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, located in the center of charming and historic Downtown San Jose.
