Why Code

This year at Code Conference, co-hosts Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg focused on the current convergence of tech, media and politics. For starters, we’re coming out of a presidential election where two of the biggest issues centered around email-server management and hacking, and where Twitter and Facebook played central roles in messaging and news platforms. Tech is no longer siloed — it has infiltrated every aspect of our lives, including our democracy.

The annual invitation-only Code Conference brings 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 2017 featured more than 30 industry luminaries, including former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Andreessen Horowitz founder and general partner Marc Andreessen, Greylock partner and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings, and many more who stepped up to be interviewed onstage. Guest speakers offered fresh insights and perspectives on topics ranging from net neutrality, the relationship between content and distribution platforms, ethical design, biohacking and commercial drones. More than 650 C-suite executives attended, and 550 companies participated.
