WHAT IS PEERS CONFERENCE?

Level up your code game, then sit back and focus on your bottom line. Peers is a business conference for creative and technical professionals. Build skills you can use all year, then spend time working on your business, free from the distractions of your office. We bring together a community of comrades to share their knowledge and experiences, and have some fun, too.

WHO SHOULD COME?

Developers of all stripes. Shop owners. App builders. Designers. Those who want to make work better. Get unique perspectives from people in a similar space. Running a business can be exhausting and isolating, but you don't have to go it alone. Army of one? Solopreneur? We got you. Whether you're a pixel-pusher, an artisan or a maker, Peers is for you.

NOT JUST TALK

We've built time into each day's agenda to break out and connect with your peers. We'll split into groups focused on company size and pain point to focus on your issues. Got someone specific you want to meet? Looking to hire, outsource, or build connections? Let us know, and we'll make it happen.

We'll also have presentations, from folks walking the walk in our industry.

YES! SAVE MY SPOT

"One of the things that I love so dearly about Peers as a conference is that it’s an event that somehow manages to fuse learning and growing as a person with the gaining of support from your peers … who have been there, done that - maybe can warn you about something that you don’t see coming, or teach you after they’ve been through something. The event is the epitome of this type of supporting one another and it’s … right in the name Peers."

— Erik
