Yesterday I took a trip to Leeds to All Day Hey!, a one-day one-track conference on topics across the front-end ecosystem. Now in its second year, All Day Hey! has managed to attract some top speakers, and curated an interesting day of diverse topics.
Every talk had something of value, but I don’t have space to write them up and couldn’t do them justice in this format. Instead, I’m going to pick out some of my top take-aways from the day that I think you’d most like to know.
If you want to know more about any of the topics covered, or any of the talks I haven’t written up then let me know! I’d be happy to chew your ear off about them some time, or arrange a way to pass on anything learned.
So here’s a list of the talks, speakers and topics. After the jump, my top lessons.

- Building Resilient Frontend Systems – Ian Feather (Infrastructure, disaster recovery)
- What is the Web without the Browser? – Peter Gasston (Extended reality, future web)
- Idea to Execution, and Beyond – Ashley Baxter (Product development)
- Lightning Talks
- CSS — Past, Present and Future – Una Kravets (Modern CSS, Houdini)
