About

Our History

The Chicago Coder Conference is entering its fourth year. The 2014 conference started as a 1-day event with two tracks and grew in 2016 to a 3-day event with 11 tracks. As in past years, members of Illinois and Chicago area user groups will team up to deliver excellent presentations of high value.

Our Mission

To Help Support and Promote the Chicagoland Tech Community

Chicago Coder Conference - 2014

Chicago Coder Conference – 2015

CCC helps support and promote the Chicagoland area’s technology community, recognizing that Chicago has become a major nexus for technology. CCC speakers are the same people you would see speaking at JavaOne, NFJS, GoogleIO, SpringOne, Amazon Invent, Microsoft Ignite, OWAS Infosec and other national events. With over 100 sessions to choose from, participating in the Chicago Coder Conference is a great opportunity for developers and architects to learn new skills through hands on interaction.

The Chicago Coder Conference is an event that delivers higher value to participants than the normal tech conference because it is run on a break even basis. The Chicago Coder Conference is also focused on the real needs of developers and managers. CCC Track selections are delivered by a range of knowledgeable and experienced User Group volunteers, and CCC speakers provide advice based on their unbiased experience. The Chicago Coder Conference provides an opportunity for attendees to interact with peers and exchange ideas about approaches, techniques, and things to avoid for better productivity solutions and solving problems.

To Provide a Rich Educational and Thought Provoking Experience

Chicago Coder Conference - 2016

Chicago Coder Conference – 2016

CCC is focused on the real needs of developers and managers. With over 50 sessions to choose from, participating in the Chicago Coder Conference is a great opportunity to learn new skills. The Chicago Coder Conference track selections are delivered by a range of knowledgeable and experienced User Group volunteers, not sales people, not sponsors.

Our speakers provide advice based on their unbiased experience. CCC helps provide companies with the tools needed to avoid over-engineering, aide in simplification and provide strategies that will boost productivity.

User Groups at the Chicago Coder Conference help determine what topics and presenters to feature in their track. Chicago Coder Conference speakers are authors, project leaders, industry leaders, experienced trainers, and subject matter experts. Our 2017 Track topics may include Agile, Architecture/Integration, Big Data, Cloud, DevOps, .Net, Java, Mobile, IoT, Robotics, Security, Tech Leadership and UX/Front End Dev.

To Cross Pollinate Advanced Ideas and Concepts

A primary objective of the Chicago Coder Conference is to drive content selection and attendance from the local technology community while benefiting companies who provide financial sponsorship.
