Code Love - Philadelphia's LOVE monument reimagined for coders


March 7-10, 2016

Watch the livestream

The conference for people who code for libraries.

An annual gathering of technologists from around the world, who largely work for and with libraries, archives, and museums and have a commitment to open technologies.

What are people saying?

I keep coming back to Code4lib primarily because of the people I’ve gotten to know. Sure, the presentations are great, but what’s even better is knowing I can grab someone in the hallway, or in IRC, or even an email months later, to ask them about something they’re working on; to get advice and feedback.

Dear Code4Lib, you modeled fallibility all week; fallibility and sharing and kindness and humanity. You brought your code to your life, and your life to your code, and I’m stronger for it, and I hope you are stronger with me. My six-year-old daughter is distressed that I didn’t go to a Valentine’s party yesterday, but really, I think I did.

This community has been a source of strength to me, a place where I have made wonderful friends and developed my own skills far beyond what I once thought I was capable of.

Code4Lib's connecting idea: the core of a tech community isn’t code; it’s relationships. Healthy relationships build healthy communities, and healthy communities are open, communicative, and inclusive.

Code4Lib is *the* place to become better by humbly exposing your limitations to those around you. Thank you *all*. #c4l13

The work that people in the code4lib community do, the ways that we’re working to be more inclusive community, and the things that we accomplish when we work together give me hope.

Welcome to Philadelphia

Philadelphia is well known for its important role in US history, but it is also dynamic and modern city, with a vibrant art scene, incredible food, and great public transit, as well as hundreds of libraries, museums and universities. The New York Times recently ranked Philly as the #3 place in the world to visit, and we couldn't agree with them more. Plus Philly packs it all into a fairly small and compact Center City that is easy to walk around. So many of us are a part of the code4lib community — we're excited to be able to host the national code4lib conference!
