Papers We Love Conf

We did it!

PWLConf 2022 was a great success thanks to the fantastic talks from our speakers and the high energy attendees who made it to St. Louis. All of the talks were recorded, and will be posted here once they are processed.

For a history of Papers We Love and why it was founded, Stack Overflow wrote up an interview with some of the founders.

It takes a lot of resources to put on a diverse program every year and we wouldn't be able to do it without our sponsors. If you or your company are interested in sponsoring Papers We Love Conf take a look at our prospectus.
