Deconstruct returns for its fourth year in 2020. The fundamentals are the same as ever: we're a single-track, language- and technology-agnostic software development conference. We invite speakers based on their track record of giving excellent talks, letting them speak about whatever they like. Deconstruct talks are brisk (25 minutes), but often go unusually deep into technical topics, connect seemingly-unrelated ideas, or both.
In 2020, we return to a movie theater venue: Cinerama, which may actually be the "world's greatest movie theater". The seats are comfortable, the sound is perfect, and the screen is beautiful. But most importantly, this means the return of free unlimited popcorn! (Cinerama's chocolate popcorn is very good.)
Deconstruct is committed to making everyone feel safe and welcome. We stand behind our Code of Conduct. Like last year, we'll provide real-time captioning, gender-neutral restrooms, and free childcare across the street from the venue (provided by Big Time Kid Care). We also take privacy seriously: each attendee chooses what goes on their badge, and we won't publish photos or videos of attendees' faces without permission.
As always, Deconstruct 2020 has no sponsors and doesn't sell speaker slots. We're focused on bringing excellent speakers into an excellent venue.
