We currently have our Call for Speakers open until January 6th, 2017. For CoderCruise we are looking for submissions covering a wide range of web technology topics including coding, design, content, and more. Given the scope of this conference, emphasis will be given to talks that appeal to all web technologists regardless of their programming language of choice (or lack thereof). We also welcome non-technical proposals that will appeal to a tech audience, and most importantly of all, we would love to have family-friendly sessions designed to teach kids to code or use related technologies.
