Why are you attending CodeLand this year?

Hey there, CodeNewbie Community! With CodeLand 2022 coming up NEXT week (June 16 & 17, 2022 — right here on CodeNewbie Community), o...

I had a great time attending CodeLand last year.
I connected with some early career devs and learned a lot from the speakers! 💜

I hope this year I will meet more early career devs and learn much more from the awesome talks! 🤩
I also need some motivation boost which I believe I will get from attending CodeLand 😄

Hi Ayu, weird question but can I ask how you went about connecting with other dev learners at the conference last year? I'm new to coding and conferences this and would really love to build my community of other dev learners so we can encourage each other, but not quite sure how 😃 Also - thanks for sharing your posts and resources 🙏🏻

Hey Kat, thanks for reading my articles 🙏🏻😄

How did I do that last year, exactly as what you do here! 😃
Codenewbie will create threads before and more during the conference. We can drop comments and interact with each other, just like what we're doing right now 😊

I still communicate with some other devs through comment in our posts and Twitter 😃

You can always try to gather people to learn together. Maybe create a #discuss post here on CodeNewbie to throw the idea of learning together and goes from there 😊

Hi Ayu, thanks for the reply and all the detailed advice, it's really appreciated and a #discuss post sounds like a great idea 🙏🏻 😃 Oh, it's good to know I'm not totally off the mark here 🤣 That's nice you're in touch with other devs from here!

CodeLand always has lots of great talks. The talks on the program this year are going to be great and are going to be diving into important topics new developers will be interested in and dealing with as they continue coding. I am also excited to connect with other developers and see what other surprises CodeLand might have in store.

Hi Sarah 👋🏼 "Inclusive Web Development" looks interesting (actually all the topics do!). But as a newbie I think it would be good if I could learn inclusive and accessible practices early on - as an essential dev toolkit rather than an addon.

I would like to connect with other webdev learners too 😃 It looks like you're much more experienced than me, but let's encourage and follow each other on here and Twitter if you like!

Okay so I'm thinking Inclusive Web Design Friday 4.21am

And 3.54am our time 😱 the Teaching through Code review one looks interesting.

I also like the sound of -

Building Your “Accomplishment Journal”: the What, the Why, the How - Sat morn our time 6.22am

Accessibility is not a Mystery - Playing Live at 3:43 AM Fri & On Demand at 2:40 AM Saturday (but the times 😱)

They all sound very beginner friendly. The timing is crazy though, I'll have to set my alarm. Do you know how do we join the talks?

I think it's on this link: community.codenewbie.org/codeland

And if you join the Discord you can chat, it's in a recent email

Yup, talk about an early alarm ☕️ ☕️ 🫣

I'm attending this year because I have broken into tech but only a little hap-hazardly. I have skills, but they're not refined, they have no focus and I need to direct my attention fully to an area that I'm interested in. I'm currently shifting from my current role to web development and maybe some web3. I'm looking forward to hearing everyone's stories and where they've come from in transitioning to tech!

I am eager to learn from others and already last year there were many great speakers, talks I felt related to. CodeLand is the perfect event for early career developers (and more experienced ones) to see other perspectives, listen to other stories, learn from each other and connect <3

There are so many whys, it would be easier to ask why not!

I just started learning how to code a few months ago! I am attending the conference because the CodeNewbie podcast was the first coding podcast I started listening to and I found it so useful and it has kept me motivated to continue this coding journey. My favorite podcast was What are some common mistakes people make when learning to code with Ceora Ford.

Why 🌈CodeLand 2022

The world 🌏 I'm dealing with, is a lot different from other fields.
The technologies currently using would get changed rapidly📈 like within one minute since the great developers found new things👩‍🔬.

🌈So the CodeLand is one of the best place to share their👩‍💻 new experiments, findings and all. And I'm here to listen them😁.

🌈And also it could be the best place/platform to get to know with career developers to hear their advices and team up with to design/develop an innovative ideas💡.

🌈Also, this time CodeLand 2022 talk line up is more interested which makes me to participate😍.

I am in my final year of my university and want to learn as much as possible and make the connections I can with others in the industry. This also seems to be a unique type of conference that caters the content to newer developers. That is greatly appreciated because it is difficult to find communities that are not inclusive of emerging developers. Lastly, I also appreciate the pay-what-you-want model allowing those on a limited income to attend without paying.

I'm a complete coding noob but from what I understand conferences are an important way for developers to learn new skills and connect with others. So this seemed like a great opportunity to start getting into the habit and meet others who are early on in their coding journeys!

My Codeland would be similar to how it is now. Allowing many CodeNewbies or even curious people who are unsure of what coding is and want to learn more of what Software Development is to join. I would say the cherry on top would be to get some really high up CEO's or Technolgy Influencers to join and give insight on what they feel would be the best way to break into tech from their perspective.

I've been building websites for a few years (still consider myself a junior level programmer), and I work for a local art school to establish a digital arts center. My main interest for attending here is that I've been interested in accessibility questions for a long time already and keep finding myself building websites that aren't very accessible. Pulling off responsive is something I already celebrate LOL but that's so not the end goal. Why do my websites not talk more or have buttons to optimize readability etc? It bothers me.

I'll reply to myself as there's no edit option (...-button doesn't respond to my mouse clicks on Win10, Version 102.0.5005.115 (Official Build) (64-bit))

Another thing I'm interested in is ways to engage audiences without a strong STEM background or other "disabilities", kids, elderly, etc.

Basically though art and experimentation - getting people into a mindset of "I can break this can open and play with the settings and observe effects"... The environment of an art school allows me to take the technical aspect less seriously (good for impostor s.!) and focus more on the "let's mess around with it!"
