CodeFreeze is an unconference taking place in Finland that defines itself as a “time and place for software craftspeople to meet”. It is part of the international group of SoCraTes conferences that are focused on software craftsmanship.
The CodeFreeze Finland conference follows the open space format for conferences. Open space is a simple methodology for self-organizing conference tracks. It relies on participation by people who have a passion for the topics to be discussed. There is no preplanned list of topics, only time slots and a space in the main meeting room where interested participants propose topics and pick time slots. While the core conference days are from Monday to Wednesday, participants typically spend a full week in Kiilopää to enjoy the amazing winter nature and amazing activities.
