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

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 πŸ˜„

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 πŸ˜ƒ Also - thanks for sharing your posts and resources πŸ™πŸ»

Hey Kat, thanks for reading my articles πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜„

How did I do that last year, exactly as what you do here! πŸ˜ƒ
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 πŸ˜ƒ

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 πŸ™πŸ» πŸ˜ƒ 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 πŸ‘‹πŸΌ "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 πŸ˜ƒ 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!

This is my first time attending. I have seen the videos from last year Codeland. I would like to learn more about the currently tech community and careers in tech as I am starting a career as a software engineer. I also would like to inspire from leaders in tech and professionals participating in the event.

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'm a soon-to-be graduated Full Stack Dev so I'm hoping the talks will not only improve my knowledge, but inspire me too! Hoping to land my first job by the end of the year 😁

Hi! I haven't really checked the schedule yet and I'm only just starting to learn how to code, I'll attend whatever is relevant I guess.

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 β˜•οΈ β˜•οΈ 🫣
