Full Stack Toronto

A conference focusing on all layers of web development

Nov 14 - 15, 2015
Toronto, Canada

Full Stack Toronto Conference hosts speakers from around the world and across the stack! We organize things a bit differently too, all of our sessions are workshop-style where you can expect to leave with actionable items to continue your career growth, we keep the sessions free of commercial content so you don’t feel like you have been pitched to, and we leave ample time for you to network with your peers to learn about how they approach similar problems.

Our Style

Speakers at Full Stack Toronto events are subject matter experts with extensive industry experience. Attendees will walk away having not only learned the why of what they're doing, but also how to execute on ideas.

Workshop-style sessions with a focus on all layers of web development—in a commercial free environment—is what really sets Full Stack Toronto events apart from all other development events.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to deliver an exceptional talk in front of 100 intermediate and senior web developers we would like to hear from you! We have identified a few key topics that we will be looking to cover at this years conference but are open to all topics of an intermediate to advanced level, introductory talks are welcome if they are about an intermediate or advanced development topic or practice.
