This year I'm one of the organisers of the Joy of Coding conference. It's a small conference in Rotterdam to celebrate, as the title says, the joy of coding. We have invited 8 great speakers to talk about their passion. This conference is for all developers, regardless of the language they program in.
There is a call for papers for a session that we'll fill with lightning talks to help out new speakers to get some practice in. So if you're quick you can still submit! There will also be speedmeeting sessions to get to know some of the other people at the conference. AND there is a somewhat alternative workshop that you can try out at any time during the day! (The subject of which is still a bit of a secret, but there is a hidden hint that can be found on the website.)
Tickets are still available, there is even a special student discount!
