It's primarily a reference to Utrecht's signature landmark, the Dom Tower. It could also be read as misspelling of the Dutch "Domme Code", literally "Dumb Code". 😉
DomCode 2016 is a cross-language conference for web developers of all kinds. This makes a CFP very hard to manage for two main reasons:
Therefore we select our programme by invite-only, handpicking expert speakers to ensure that a wide range of groundbreaking topics is covered. We also include a community track, where local user groups select upcoming speakers to represent and share knowledge from their local community.
We want every developer to be able to join us at DomCode 2016 by lowering all barriers possible. Therefore we offer our high quality programme for low-cost tickets so anyone can afford to come. This low cost is possible because DomCode 2016 is a non-profit conference run by volunteers: ticket sales and sponsorships are used only to cover expenses for the conference.
Accessibility is a specific priority for DomCode 2016 to lower all barriers for attendance. We chose the Centraal Museum as our venue not only for its spacious halls and downtown location, but also wheelchair accessibility and support for the hard-of-hearing.
The Nicolai Church (main hall and entrance) is fully ground floor, therefore wheelchair accessible. It is also equipped with an induction loop for hearing aids. The Garden Hall (secondary) is a modern building next to the Nicolai Church with wheelchair accessible restrooms and an elevator to the upper floor. Unfortunately, there is no hearing aid support here.
We are currently looking into other ways to increase accessibility of our conference and will update this page once more is set in place.
Definitely! Just like last year's edition, we will be recording all of the talks and release them online for free viewing. We aim to fully transcribe all DomCode conference videos (work in progress).
