With CodeLand 2022 coming up in a little less than two weeks, we wanted to stop by with a quick reminder about how and why you should register for this two-day virtual conference from CodeNewbie and DEV 🌈
CodeLand is taking place virtually on CodeNewbie Community this year — a space built on Forem that exists to champion, connect, and spotlight early-career programmers and people learning to code. In order to get the most out of CodeLand and to register, you'll need a free account on CodeNewbie Community.
While CodeLand isn't free for the CodeNewbie and DEV communities to host, we do everything we can to make this event accessible to those across all stages of their careers. We know that students and entry-level professionals don't always have extra money lying around, so it was important for us to allow our attendees to choose the cost off their ticket. Yes, that includes $0!
With that said, we greatly appreciate those of you who do opt to pay for your ticket. The proceeds from our ticket sales goo towards paying speakers and activity hosts and making the event as memorable as possible.
CodeLand is taking place on June 16 & 17 and both days will be jam-packed with inspiring talks from the community. We're also thrilled to have three headlining speakers joining us: Angie Jones, Kelsey Hightower, and Tracy Chou.
We're also excited to share that there will be two additional features of this year's event that will break up the format of the day, get your brain working in a different way, and be a lot of fun.
Towards the end of day one, we'll be featuring a yoga wellness break to help you pause and encourage mindfulness. Immediately afterward, we'll close out the day with a fun digital scavenger hunt complete with multiple opportunities to win some amazing prizes. Then at the start of day 2, we'll announce our lucky winners.
We hope to see you at this year's event! In closing, here's some actual footage of us racing towards CodeLand 2022:
