Why Code

Each year, Recode’s founders, Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, host the most prestigious event in tech and media — Code Conference. The invitation-only Code Conference was created to bring together a global community of the biggest names in the business, executive leaders and startups with bright futures for networking and in-depth conversations about the current and future impact of digital technology.

Over the span of three days, Code 2016 featured 30 industry luminaries, including Elon Musk, Sheryl Sandberg, Bill and Melinda Gates, Jeff Bezos and many more. Guest speakers offered fresh insights and perspectives on topics ranging from humans habitation on Mars to cognitive computing, tech and politics, and the coming product wars. More than 650 C-suite executives attended, and 550 companies took part. Check out our full event coverage here, including onstage interviews.
