The Official Umbraco Conference
What is Codegarden?
“Learning while having a blast with the coolest crowd in the world. What could be better?!”
“I recommend Codegarden to everyone interested in Umbraco. The things you learn, people you meet and all-round awesome experience make it worth it.”
“This was my first Codegarden and I absolutely loved it.”
That is some of the feedback we received after our last Codegarden, and we couldn't agree more! Keep it in mind as we *officially* introduce you "the conference like no other" 😉
Codegarden is the biggest international Umbraco conference in the world. It is also the only Umbraco conference that’s organized by Umbraco HQ - the company behind Umbraco CMS.
While we call it Umbraco Developer Conference, Codegarden is relevant to anyone working with Umbraco. We want Codegarden to be a great experience for developers, creatives and business owners alike, and the conference agenda is catered to have valuable talks, panels, and fun sessions for all of them.
When and where is Codegarden 2021?
Codegarden 2021 is set to take place on June 9 - June 11, 2021, and it's going to be virtual for the very first time!
That's right - you'll be able to join the exciting sessions from anywhere in the world and to feel the unique Umbraco community vibe from the comfort of your own home/office 🎉 We've now opened registration, so go ahead and register for free!
What's it like being a newbie?
A lot of seasoned Umbracians will return to Codegarden, and they all remember what it was like to be new once! That's what makes it a very friendly place for first-timers, too. In fact, we throw in all the ingredients to create the perfect introduction to everything Umbraco is and stands for.
Each year we plan special initiatives to make Codegarden even friendlier for newbies. In 2019, for example, we introduced a buddy system called uBuddy where returning Codegardeners were paired up with first-timers. It was so successful, we might just bring it back for Codegarden 2021. This means that you'll still be able to network with talented and like-minded folks, even though the setting will be virtual 🤝
Don't just take our word for it 🙌
Codegarden is an unmissable experience whether you've been there before or not. But don't just take our word for it.
Emma Burstow, a long-time .NET developer and dedicated community member who recently joined Umbraco HQ, has been to Codegarden multiple times before. And she can’t wait for this year’s virtual Codegarden.
So, what is Codegarden to Emma? And why is she so excited about this year?
''Codegarden is a number of things for me. It's the coming together of like-minded people to share everything they have learned across the last 12 months but it's also a place to see the people behind the code they write. It's a chance to make new friends and catch up with old friends. For the first-timers, it's a springboard to becoming a part of the friendliest tech community you'll meet. And we can’t wait to meet you.
This last year has been all kinds of challenging and the Umbraco community has found new ways to stay together while we're apart. Our first virtual Codegarden will be a celebration of all we've achieved in the last year and we want everyone to be there. This is the first year you won't need to hop on a plane or a train to be with your people - it's free and it's open and accessible to all.''
Emmanuel Tissera, a valuable Umbraco MVP and active community member, lives in Australia, and he’s never got the chance to join Codegarden. But this year, he’ll be able to join our virtual conference without having to travel all the way to Denmark 📺
''I've never attended Codegarden but always wanted to. Peeps who attend our Melbourne and Sydney meetups as well as the Umbraco Down Under Festival talk very highly of Codegarden, the camaraderie and the inclusivity of first-timers. The connections made and the knowledge they bring back from this event is immeasurable. I want to be one of them.''
See you in June? 😉
We sure hope so!
Because we can’t wait to give you the best virtual Umbraco experience ever 🎉 So get rolling and mark your calendars for June 9th - 11th 2021!
