“We must remember that, in the real world of technology, most people live and work under conditions that are not structured for their well-being.” – Ursula Franklin, The Real World of Technology (1989)
Over the first ten years of the Eyeo Festival, we’ve hosted a series of Code+ summits around topics that we’ve felt could benefit from longer and more intimate discussions than the main conference allows. With Code+Education, Code+Activism, Code+Resistance, Code+Climate and Code+Libraries, we brought Eyeo attendees and speakers together with outside experts and curious community members to ask new questions and come up with new models for collaboration and critical action.
For 2020, Eyeo’s 10th year, we’re convening the Code+ summit around a key concept that has threaded through each of the previous years’ events: Care. How does the work we do affect others, and how might we reduce potential harms? How can we act as individual practitioners and as a community to be more careful? How can we care more in the work that we do, and how can our work encourage others to care?
Structured as an ‘un-conference’, Code+Care summit provides a forum for every attendee to lead discussions, present work, teach workshops and devise new models for effective communication. This mini-conference will follow a ‘wiki’ format, meaning that the schedule for the event will be constructed and edited by the attendees themselves, based on their shared enthusiasms and interests.

Who Should Attend?
The Code+Care summit is open to coders & non-coders, technologists, activists and would-be-activists, organizers and those looking to be organized. We’re committed to assembling a diverse set of voices and skill sets, and to providing a safe space for conversation.
