There's a new conference happening in November (in Indianapolis, Indiana) brought to you by the group behind PHPWomen and EngineYard - the CodeConnexx conference.
CodeConnexx is a two-day, one track conference that aims to bring together men and women of all ages, races, backgrounds, and skillsets interested in talking about code. As we know, choosing a career as a coder comes with its own sets of life challenges, and we want to talk about those too. In short, this conference is a different kind of conference, as it connects those two pieces of the puzzle together in one event.
It's a two-day event happening November 8th and 9th and registration is now open - tickets can be purchased for $99 USD. There's lots of great topics being covered over the two days including:
- "Getting Started Contributing to Open Source"
- "Mentoring Developers"
- "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Deployment but Were Afraid to Ask"
- "Grokking REST"
Additionally, they're doing something interesting for those that have children and want to attend - childcare will be provided on site.
