About

This year, WebCamp will take place on April 22, 2017 at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science in Ljubljana. You can expect a day full of diverse talks, chocolate, coffee, and fun - it’s a Saturday and you can bring your kids too!

Learn new things, meet new friends or get a massage! In the meantime, your kids can play together with Minecraft under responsible adult supervision. There will also be some cool VR and IoT experiences for all of us to play with.

WebCamp is an event organized by the community for the community. All talks are in English and we expect 300 attendees from all over the region. It’s free to attend, but you’ll need a ticket*.

Check out some highlights from the previous year below — but keep in mind that this year’s WebCamp is going to be even more special!

See how much fun we had in 2015 & 2016

Call for proposals

Submissions are now closed. Thank you for the amazing response.

We believe that happy and satisfied people come up with nicer solutions and write better code, so this year we will turn our attention to the wellbeing of our community.

What we do as developers is hard; fixing browser specific bugs, making our web app run faster, figuring out why visitors don’t click where we want them to, learning the latest JS framework. Web development is funny like that, isn’t it? Sometimes it feels like we are losing ourselves in trying to learn all the new technology and also be good at it. So this year we also want to talk about life outside of code.

What makes you get out of bed in the morning? How do you cope with the stress of ever shorter deadlines? What is your favorite productivity hack? And how do you keep up with all the frameworks?
What do you want to share with the community? What is the story you want to be heard?

Whether it’s a technical talk or not, we want to hear from every kind of person. And that is you! You might be an expert or someone just getting started, a conference veteran or a first-time attendee, a programmer, a designer, a social media expert; whoever you are, we believe you have something valuable to share.

Share your stories, tips & tricks with us, submit your talk proposal today!

If you feel you’re not experienced or interesting enough to be selected, we encourage you to try anyway. You might surprise yourself! You're the person we want to hear from! And if you need some help, we are always happy to give you some feedback on your proposal or your talk idea. Simply ask us over email before submitting.

This small and friendly community driven conference has got your back!
