ANZ Coders is an interactive, online, virtual conference, running for two hours each night, for a whole week. Being virtual means you won't need to ask the boss for time off work; you won't need to pay a conference fee; and you can even show up in your pyjamas, pants optional. We won't tell anyone!

Attending is easy! Just click to Register. That's it! You won't be asked to install any third party software or browser plug-ins. It's just you, a browser, a cool drink, a comfy seat, and us. Sweet!

Each night will feature three 30-minute sessions, with a 15-minute break between them. That'll give you time between sessions to collect your thoughts, check the tweets, take a bio-break, refill your drink, put the kids to bed, take the bins out, and whatever else you need to do.

Each session will have a live chat room and a Q&A area. You'll be able to shoot the breeze with other attendees, ask the presenter questions as they go, or just do some friendly heckling just like an in-person conference. How great is that‽

Where is it?

It's virtual. It's online. It's wherever you are at the time. No need to worry about transport or parking for this conference.

What's the cost?

It's free! Zero. Nada. Nothing. Squat.
Why? Because we love you. Awww. #hugs

Will dinner be provided?

No, but feel free to buy yourself a pizza and drop bits all over the floor at home if you want that full conference experience.

When is registration open?

Now! Go register!

How does voting work?

All the abstracts are up on UserVoice. The community (that's you!) will have a week to vote on the topics they most want to see. The top community voted submissions will then be asked to present, and we'll work out the schedule after that.

I want to speak!

Wonderful! Sad to say, session proposals are now closed. If only you'd been a little more organised or heard about us earlier. #sigh

I want to help!

Great! Get in touch with us at
P.S. If you've got some graphical skills and want to spruce the site up, we'd love it. You can even submit a pull request. It's all open source

I want to sponsor ANZ Coders

We'd love you to. We do have some costs to cover so hit us up at and we can talk about options.

Is there a hashtag?

Of course there is. Use #anzcoders

Will recordings be available?

Absoutely. We'll have all the links for you right here, once the conference is done.

Do I have to behave?

Yes, you do. Be nice, OK? That means no spamming, harassment, discrimination, racism or abuse. This includes speakers.
