The most welcoming conference for early-career coders and their champions. Produced by CodeNewbie and DEV, two software communities built on Forem.

Taking place virtually from

CodeLand is the community-first conference designed to level up programmers and people learning to code – from home!

Motivating talks, rewarding activities, and connection with other code-obsessed people like you.

  • Why attend?

    Whether you’re researching coding bootcamps or celebrating your tenth year as a software developer, CodeLand is for you.
    Together, we’ll discuss big ideas in tech, empower lifelong learning, and energize one another to keep coding as whole people.

    Come for the code, stay for the community.


CodeLand 2021 is an entirely remote two-day conference. Each day will be six hours long (9am-3pm PT / 12-6pm ET / 4-10pm UTC) and will consist of a mix of live keynotes, pre-recorded talks, and live speaker panels on both days.

Stay tuned for more information on the details and structure of the event!
