No presentations: just guided conversations and workshops on the hottest topics in software development amongst your peers.
Traditionally conferences feature a set of talks given by speakers, where you consume their thoughts and perhaps get a chance to ask a question at the end.
This conference will be different.
In small groups, we will have guided conversations around the latest topics of interest to software developers. We'll provide the guide, and you'll provide your thoughts. We will all learn from each other.
Join us on Friday 14th September 2018 for a day of conversations and workshops.
We need your help to make this happen! We need people who are familiar with a topic to guide a conversation.
Call for guides closes Tuesday 31st July!
All you need to do for then is let us know you are interested and an idea of a topic, if you are interested and struggling for a topic we can help just get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org).

A Guided Conversation is a meeting where a facilitator comes up with a starting set of questions around a single topic. The attendees then discuss each of those questions, with 8 minutes for each question.
You can find more information about Guided Conversations here.
We are currently working to choose which topics will be discussed.
The topics will be of interest to all developers regardless of experience or background. Topics we are currently considering include TDD, Microservices and Refactoring.
We are looking for people to facilitate the guided conversations, so please get in touch if you’d like to help.
CodeCraftConf is a proudly language-agnostic conference, where we want to share ideas with as diverse a group of developers as possible. Whether you're building websites for the latest start-up with Ruby, creating financial models for a large global bank in Java or writing a front-end app for an in-house client with .Net, we want to hear from you.
CodeCraft has a Code of Conduct which we require all attendees to adhere to for all events.
