About the conference

Joy of Coding is a one-day conference that celebrates the art, craft, science but foremost the joy of software development. It is a day for talking and collaborating with like-minded coders. The conference is not targeted towards a particular language or platform: any software developer that wants to learn, share and improve is invited.
