Codeland is an interactive, two-day conference filled with talks, panels, and workshops with the most supportive community of programmers and people learning to code.

I can’t help but feel that I was a part of something really special. I believe Codeland is the first in a movement to change what a tech conference is and can be.

3 reasons to come to codeland

  1. Inclusive Community

    We're the kindest, most inclusive, most supportive community of programmers and people learning to code. We've got dance breaks, the most delicious food, and plenty of breaks to make new coding friends.

  2. Inspiring Talks

    Hear inspiring stories from speakers of all backgrounds and skill levels. We spend an average of 4hrs with each speaker to make sure they're ready for the big day, and you get to hear high-quality talks.

  3. Designed For Newbies

    If you're early in your coding journey, this conference is designed especially for you. Each talk comes with a cheatsheet, so you never feel lost. Talks are accessible to all skill levels and coding interests. Hands-on workshops let you build new skills in a safe space.


Each ticket includes access to both days of the conference, breakfast, lunch, and snacks throughout the day. Get yours while you can!

Not Your Average Conference

From dance breaks to delicious food, we want every minute you spend with us to be magical.

My Codeland experience was inspirational and overwhelming. I feel recharged. I feel re-energized. I’m more excited than ever to be a developer. And I can’t imagine a better conference to give your first talk.

High Quality Content

Each speaker received 4+ hours of personal coaching. We worked together to craft each talk, combining technical insights with powerful storytelling to create the best tech talks you’ve ever seen.

I’ve gone to dozens of tech conferences, and presented at several, and I’ve never experienced this level of individual coaching from anyone involved—let alone the event organizer herself.

Everyone was welcoming, encouraging, and genuinely interested in what you had to say. There was Bolly- wood dancing. People literally clapped when you left both days.

I hope other conferences pay attention. Tech is already diverse, let’s just make it inclusive.
