Peers Conference Workshops
Peers is an inclusive and people-focused tech event for web and software developers. But more that that – we are a community – and our connection is deeper than our code. We aim to offer an opportunity to learn, grow, and share, with folks who do what you do. We’ve traded the velvet rope atmosphere of some conferences for a friendly hello, and often, a hug or two. We promise, you’ll feel the difference.
