A conference for developers, by developers.

Blue Conf will be Cardiff’s first full-stack conference. A joint effort between Cardiff-JS and PHP South Wales, aiming to bring developers together from either side of their technical stacks.

The conference is being run as a not-for-profit. All proceeds from the conference go to support the great work done by Code Club.


Our first conference is kindly being hosted by Cardiff University at their Computer Science & Informatics department.

Due to restrictions with the venue unfortunately we cannot supply any food. We welcome people to bring their own food and there will also be regular breaks to get food at the nearby shops, restaurants & cafe’s.
