What is You Got This From Your Couch?

You Got This From Your Couch is an online event which replaces our in-person UK-based event in January 2021. It is an online community conference, which focuses on the non-technical core skills for a happy, healthy work life. In the past we've had talks about ethics in tech, self-care, and learning.

This edition will run over two days - workshops will take place on on Friday 15th January 2021, and conference talks will be streamed online (for free!) on Saturday 16th January 2021. Calendar reminder for event.

Tickets will be available on Sunday 1st November 2020. Calendar reminder for tickets.
