About Generate

Generate conferences are presented by net magazine – the world’s leading print and digital publication for web designers and frontend developers. Established in 1994, net magazine has been at the heart of web industry for over two decades, and boasts an unparalleled list of contributors and supporters. 

In 2013 we brought the magazine to life and our industry closer together when we hosted our first conference in London. It was so successful that now, in 2016, Generate takes place in five locations across the globe. A source of inspiration, education and networking opportunities, our shows are packed with top advice from world-class speakers. They feature the same practical, real-world tips you've come to expect from net magazine over the years.
