That’s a wrap on the inaugural No Code Conf

As the sun, err fog, sets on another San Francisco autumn night, we sadly say goodbye to No Code Conf 2019.

Our first conference was a sold-out success thanks to our incredible speakers, sponsors, attendees, and community.

Here’s the run-down in case you couldn’t make it in person — and make sure to sign up for details on how to watch the talk recordings, access the slides to the workshops, and attend our remote-friendly No Code Conf Keynote Viewing Parties. 

We had 457 attendees who traveled to No Code Conf from 26 countries, 75 major cities, and 30 US states. 

The day started bright and early with a bagel bar and endless caffeine at the No Code Cafe.

Webflow CEO + Cofounder, Vlad Magdalin kicked off sessions with an inspiring keynote followed by a fireside chat discussing why No Code is important for the future of software with investors in the No Code movement.

And he even got a selfie from stage. 

The full two-day schedule represented a wide range of perspectives from all over the world. Our speakers traveled from Botswana, Mexico, Israel, Italy, England, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Wales, and all over the US. 48% of speakers identified as non-male and 52% non-white. 

Tlamelo Cindy Melemo, President at WoTech Botswana, commanded an audience and had all of us challenging ourselves how we can better serve marginalized communities with her incredibly powerful lightning talk. 

Camille Esposito, Senior Brand Designer at Getaround, and Micah Fenner, Product Designer at Asana, both crushed their first-ever conference talks with a dominating stage presence and poignant perspectives. 

The No Code Drive-In Demo Theater was consistently packed at every main stage break where attendees munched on popcorn and candy, learned about our sponsors, and bonded over the amazingness that is 1980’s computer commercials.

In between learning sessions, attendees interacted with art installations that provided insight into Webflow features and company culture. A giant kaleidoscope to climb inside and immerse yourself in provided a unique photo opportunity, as well as a creative way to watch the No Code video again. Because it’s just that good

An entire room made of aluminum composite represented how easy it is to design with visual development. Attendees were able to make their own creations with magnets designed in collaboration by the Webflow Brand Studio team and the official artist of No Code Conf, Nine & Eye


When a break from the crowds was necessary, an introvert sanctuary and an animation studio helped attendees recharge and get back in the networking-game. 


And if you needed help, the Webflow team was there to support. Everyone from product experts and support, to accessibility and social impact came out to meet No Code makers. 

The energy of the room was palpable from beginning to end. 

In short: our community is the best. We are so incredibly grateful to all of you for traveling far and wide to be with for the first-ever No Code Conf. We hope to see you in person again in 2020! Stay in the loop on all things community and events at Webflow. 

A special thanks to our sponsors
