It's fun

Joy of coding is all about the love for programming. Learn about new and emerging technologies from companies and academia. Get inspired by renowned international speakers. Pair with fellow passionate developers in one of the workshops.

It's affordable

Joy of Coding is a non-profit event. With the help of our sponsors we aimed to keep registration fees low to provide the best value-for-money conference of 2016. Our very-early bird tickets sell at only EUR 128, just like our previous editions!

It's by dev, for devs

Joy of Coding is organised by a bunch of developers. There is no commercial agenda, the schedule is purely based on stuff that developers, like us, love to see. Expert speakers but no talking heads. A place where we can all get together and talk about code.

Code of conduct

We are dedicated to providing an enjoyable, respectful and harassment-free event experience for everyone regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion. — full version
