Your favorite indie event returns for a third time! Did you miss last year's exquisite low-level conference? Catch it all for free.
Fully-Hybrid Conference: November 11th & 12th
In 2019, we had a physical event with 300 guests. In 2020, we found incredible success online with 13,000 live viewers simulcasted on the website and Twitch. These were BIG wins for a tiny conference.
This year we go even bigger: 2-day event with both a physical track and an online track. That's right – visit the Seattle Center, or enjoy the show from home! We're expanding the physical venue to accommodate up to 400 guests.
Early-Bird Tickets: Saturday May 15th
On the main website we have activated the infamous countdown timer:
The standard prices for 2021 are:
- 100.00 USD - Physical Track
- 30.00 USD - Online Track
During this early period the first hundred sales get 20% off (applied to whichever track you picked.) Our speaker lineup won't be fleshed out during this time, but hopefully Handmade Seattle has earned your trust with its track record.
How to Contribute
The simplest way to tip us off on a low-level project or a good speaker is to e-mail us.
We are currently reaching out to speakers with fairly mature software projects. This year we will not be looking for lectures without a real-world project underpinning it.
Speaker slots are extremely limited. Demo slots less so. Last year's demos were among the most popular topics for discussion. If we can't offer you a speaker slot, please consider a demo.
Democratizing Conference Participation
1. The Chat Server and You
Q&A sessions will happen in the chat server no matter what. The speakers will use their smartphone to pick their favorite questions whether it was asked by someone in the building or from Japan.
2. Talking In Person versus Watching Demos
Between lectures we will have breaks. If you're there in person, this is a chance to enjoy the company of those around you. If you're an online track person, you might instead watch demos from creators who will be in the chat server.
These dynamics are not only interesting, but they democratize conference participation. Let's experiment together.
