These technologies have become central to all kinds of development, beyond just building websites. If you're building web applications, designing for mobile devices, or working with the web's evolving infrastructure, you need to keep up with the proliferation of new technology that's driving the web forward in all the forms it takes.
At Fluent, you'll immerse yourself in learning and engage with the wider web community. Fluent's speakers are people who are working with—and sometimes building—the same technologies you use. Fluent offers a wide variety of learning opportunities, from immersive tutorials and sessions with experts to the "hallway track" between sessions where attendees informally connect and share questions, knowledge, and perspectives with their peers.
If you're working on the modern web—whether you're independent or part of a large team—and you want to gain hands-on learning, make meaningful connections, and share ideas across communities, then Fluent is the place for you. If you want to grow more fluent in the language of the global, expanding, maturing web, we invite you to join us at Fluent.
Fluent is a place to find your tribe and to connect with other communities and people you've always wanted to meet. Whether you're a regular at conferences and your local meetup or you're completely new to the conference scene, Fluent provides fresh opportunities for you to interact with people in the wider web community.
Everyone involved in building the modern web, from beginners to seasoned veterans:
Laurel Ruma is a content director at O'Reilly Media. Laurel has chaired a number of O'Reilly conferences and workshops, including Next: Economy, Cultivate, Where 2.0, OSCON Java, and Gov 2.0 Expo.
Tammy Everts is chief experience officer at SpeedCurve, where she helps companies understand how visitors use their websites. She has spent the past two decades studying how people use the web. Since 2009, she's focused on the intersection between web performance, user experience, and business metrics. Tammy's book, Time Is Money: The Business Value of Web Performance (O'Reilly, 2016), is a distillation of much of this research (but there's always more to be learned). She cocurates (with Tim Kadlec) WPO Stats, a collection of performance case studies.
Thank you to our ambassadors, who have partnered with O’Reilly to raise awareness about the Velocity + Fluent conferences in their communities.
