Ah, it’s this time of the year 🤩 Codegarden 2020 is approaching and numerous clever Umbracians have already secured their spot to the biggest and greatest Umbraco conference in the world (and probably the best of all times? 😉).
The ticket sale is at full blast - and until February 21st, you can buy your ''golden pass'' for only €600 (saving €150!).
Should you join? What will you get out of it? And what is Codegarden anyway? 🤔 If you haven’t made up your mind yet and have questions like these, this blog post is for you!

What is Codegarden? 

Codegarden is an exclusive, one-of-a-kind experience. It’s the biggest Umbraco conference in the world, and also the only Umbraco conference that’s organized by Umbraco HQ (the company behind Umbraco). 

Last year, more than 700 friendly faces from all around the world showed up and joined the insightful sessions led by over 37 phenomenal keynote speakers, Umbraco community stars as well as Umbraco HQ members. And we’re expecting even more to join us at Codegarden 2020 😉 We’re thrilled about this. And we guess you are too!

At Codegarden, you’ll be updated on everything Umbraco - you’ll get to know all the breaking news about Umbraco and the industry in general, directly from the people who are working on it 😮 And you’ll upgrade your skills while having a blast with the coolest crowd. 

Speakers are already ticking in, and we have some great names on the speaker list already! Take a peek at the speaker line-up.

When, where and what 🤔

Codegarden 2020 will take place on the 📅 27th-29th of May, in our home city 📍 Odense, Denmark at DOKK 5000.

A friendly tip for your planning: registration starts at 08.00 CEST on the 27th of May and the conference ends at 15.00 CEST on the 29th of May. Odense is approx. 1.5 hours train ride from Copenhagen Airport (trains are quite frequent 😉).
