AndConf is on hiatus for 2017. Read more about it on our blog.

What is AndConf?

AndConf (formerly &:conf) is a code retreat and unconference for programmers with an intersectional feminist perspective. Saturday’s code retreat is a day of pair programming on one kata where each hour we throw our code away and work with a new person. Sunday’s unconference has two tracks: yak and hack, where we'll talk about technologies, programming, careers, and culture. AndConf takes place in the beautiful redwoods of western Sonoma County, CA, at a 100-year old summer camp and retreat center.

AndConf takes place at St. Dorothy's Rest camp and retreat center.
