Be an agent of chaos
There must be a creation process. There must be change.

We, the IT crowd, recognize the need to reinvent our ways every year, learning new formulas to do old things. We don't relax believing that what was best practice last year will remain unchanged, unaffected by time. That's how Cobol was born. We don't do that.

We are agents of change. We recognize the need to destroy in order to build. We go, and get together, and learn. Then we get back to our places of work, and break things.

That's what we do.

+1,900 Attendees
With more than 1,900 software enthusiasts, Codemotion is the biggest IT event in Spain.

+30 Communities
Codemotion is possible because of all the communities that are behind it, contributing with their support and curiosity.

+130 Talks & Workshops
Quality is important to us. That's why we go through all flavors of pain to filter the best talks and workshops.
