Hello, dear CodeNewbie Community!
As you might know, CodeLand. -our annual conference for early-career software developers (and their champions)- is coming up on June 16 & 17, 2022. We couldn't be more excited to bring you what's sure to be two days of virtual inspiration, motivation, and learning!
Over the years, CodeLand has evolved a great deal and each chapter in its history was carefully designed to fit the needs of our growing community at the time. For 2022, you'll see in the program that there's a particular focus on web accessibility — because that's what the CodeNewbie and DEV communities asked for! We aim to please 🌈
There's so much to get excited about at CodeLand this year that it's hard to pick a "most exciting" feature, but one thing we keep hearing is particularly awesome is that the event will be pay-what-you-want again — starting at $0. We believe it's important to deliver a conference that's accessible in every way for our global audience of folks just starting out in their careers. Being at that stage can mean that money is often tight, and we want to meet you all where you're at.
CodeLand would be nothing without our highly curated talks from prominent figures in the industry and our inspiring community members alike.
This year, you'll get to hear from keynoters Angie Jones (advocate for developers at every level and IBM Master Inventor), Kelsey Hightower (influential cloud computing and open source leader), and Tracy Chou (a pioneer for and advocate of online safety and anti-harassment tooling, not to mention a Time Magazine 2022 Women of the Year award winner). You'll also hear from 15 amazing individuals from the CodeNewbie Community who have relevant stories and guidance to share with you.
In order to join us at CodeLand and get the full virtual experience, be eligible for prizes and giveaways, and participate in activities, you'll need to register.
We look forward to seeing your name on our "guest list" and your presence at this year's event 💜
