As a tech conference with zero sponsors, it's impossible to survive without tickets or donations. Lend us a hand!
Boston in the summer, seattle in the fall
We are the largest indie conferences for systems programmers. This is your portal to meet with folks into graphics, game engines, kernels, compilers, and more!
Inspired by Handmade Hero
Like Handmade Hero by Molly Rocket we believe in breaking software down to the bare bones and building back an understanding of how it all really works. We are not affiliated with Molly Rocket, Inc.
Two Cities, Two UNIQUE EVENTs
Handmade Boston is the Mentorship Conference. Handmade Seattle is our Celebration Conference. Will you attend both?
100% indie. We’re a small business that’s sponsor-free: speakers can criticize any software or company.
Fully hybrid. We offer a physical track or an online track—your choice!
Dive deeper. The mission is to encourage a deep understanding of computers to build better software.
