A few months back, @saron announced that CodeLand is returning for its 5th year this fall as a virtual conference.
Since then, the CodeNewbie community has been hard at work submitting talks for CodeLand and videos for CodeLand Recess. They have also been asking great questions about this virtual gathering for early-career developers and their champions both on Twitter and right here on CodeNewbie Community.
Today, we're thrilled to share that the official lineup of CodeLand speakers is live — and you can now register to join us!
1. Sign up for an account on CodeNewbie Community if you don't already have one You'll need it to get the full CodeLand experience in September.
2. Register via codelandconf.com. We recognize that many early-career developers might not be in the position to pay for an event ticket right now. That's why CodeLand 2021 is pay-what-you-want. If you can't afford to pay anything right now, join us for free (just change the $15 “suggested price” to $0 when registering).
3. Spread the news! We want to make CodeLand available for as many newbie programmers and professional developers as possible. We'd love it if you could share the news with your network, so please tell your friends, mentors, and colleagues you'll be attending CodeLand. Don't forget to tag @codelandconf and @codenewbies and include the hashtag #codeland.
Are you ready to find out who you'll be hearing from at CodeLand? Great! We can't keep it to ourselves any longer 🎉
