"Organizing Independent Conferences" with Abner Coimbre
Show Notes

I talk with my good friend Abner Coimbre about his work putting on high quality tech conferences with no sponsor influence.

We cover: why Abner does the work that he does, how Abner manages the ticket prices while delivering a high quality event, Abner's day to day work, how he curates talks for a conference, the "programming language ban" at his 2022 conference, his new Handmade Cities initiative, and more.
