Frequently Asked Questions
What is Codemotion?
Codemotion is one of the biggest tech conferences in Europe with an international network of 30.000 developers and 350 speakers and further partner conferences in Milan, Rome, Amsterdam, Dublin, Dubai, Tel-Aviv, Madrid and Berlin (check out Codemotionworld).
This year you have the chance to attend the very first edition of Codemotion Warsaw which will happen on September 15th & 16th at Atlantic Cinema. We are preparing the place for up to 600 visitors from each corner of the world.
What is the structure of the event?
Codemotion Warsaw 2016 will contain 4 conference stages with loads of tech talks.
What are the main subject areas of the conference?
Codemotions are generally open to all languages and technologies. We are looking for Call for Papers submissions in the following areas of interest:

- Open Source
- Front-end & Back-end
- Game Dev
- Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery
- Quality Assurance
- and more…
However, we are aware that we cannot fit all of those into one 4-track agenda. We will do our best to choose matching set of talks and to deliver an interesting timetable to a particular group of developers. Out of all Call for Paper’s submissions we’ll select the best ones from few IT areas.
What is your target audience?
The main target groups are developers, product managers and CTO’s. We will be able to specify more approximate target group after we evaluate Call for Papers submissions and create the agenda draft for the first time.
