Polyglot Unconference 2015

May 22nd-23rd

Vancouver, Canada


This is our 4th annual Polyglot Unconference and we promise it will be the biggest and best yet. This year over 300 software developers will leave language, platform and possibly even editor wars behind and come together for a spontaneously organized day of amazing talks, round-table discussions, panel sessions and coding.

If you've never been to an un-conference (or open-space) event before your owe it to yourself to make it to Polyglot 2015. It's an experience like no other.
