Speaking to us as part of an extensive interview that will soon appear in net magazine, Frost tells us he plans to talk about the constant technical changes web workers face, and how, trying to keep pace with it, can leave you feeling utterly exhausted.
Sketching out his keynote, Frost says: "I want to talk about what it means to make a website in 2015 and what it means to call yourself a web designer... We're swimming in options, technologies, techniques, opinions. I want to say - coming from a none-programming background - that it's alright to not know everything."
Elsewhere, Frost is writing a unique book about web design. Called Atomic Design (opens in new tab), the book is being created live on GitHub and the community is invited to use, learn from, and also contribute to the document as it's being created.
