We're very excited to announce that Generate – an international conference for web designers and developers, brought to you by net magazine – will be coming to Australia for the first time this year! net fans from Down Under can head to Sydney's Doltone House Hyde Park on 5 September for an awesome one-day, one-track event (opens in new tab).
What's more, all Generate Sydney ticketholders will become founding members, which means you'll get 50 per cent of all future Generate tickets, for life.
We've signed up a superb group of speakers to cover the latest practical techniques, cutting-edge ideas and inspirational stories. Here's who has been announced so far:
'Great-grandfather of RWD' John Allsopp (opens in new tab) will draw on his impressive credentials when it comes to predicting the next huge thing in the web world to show you how you too can predict the future.
Also doing a little future-gazing is Facebook's Nick Finck (opens in new tab), who believes we are on the cusp of a new era of communication and design. In his talk he will explore how the things we create today will change the way the human race operates for years to come.

Finally, Erika Hall (opens in new tab) will tackle the ever-growing amount of analytics and data available, and explain why 'what we can't count still counts'.
