Register for CodeLand 2021 β€” and See Who's Speaking!

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 β€” and you can now register to join us!

Here's how to claim a seat at CodeLand...

Hey @graciegregory16 do you know if the sessions will be recorded? I’d like to sign up but the time difference is literally night and day πŸ˜…. I plan on registering and watching replays once I’m awake if that’s possible.
