Codegarden is a pretty casual affair - think jeans, tee and a hoodie. The weather is generally pretty mild, though it can get a little chilly and rainy - but we often see the sun too!
- Hawaiian shirt, for the pre-party
- warm jacket, just in case!
- waterproof jacket
- sun hat
- hoodie/jacket/sweater, in case the venue is a little chilly or you're out late
- tops and t-shirts (Umbraco swag, if you have them!)
- jeans/casual trousers
- dresses/skirts, but keep it casual
- comfortable shoes/trainers
- flip-flops (if you ask Discord, that is!)
Codegarden offers a few sporting opportunities, if you're so inclined. 🏓🚲🧘🏃🏊
- sportswear for paddel, if you want to join the tournament on Tuesday morning
- cycling kit and bike, if you want to join the ride on Tuesday morning
- running kit, if you want to join the CG Runners each morning - #cgRunners
- clothes you're comfortable in for yoga (mats are provided, and you'll be fine wearing your conference clothes)
- swimming kit and towel (some years there's been a cohort of people swimming each morning - keep an eye on Twitter #cgSwimmers)
It's a tech conference after all!
- power bank (planes generally restrict to <100Wh)
- charge cables
- USB wall charger
- laptop, for workshops
- laptop charger (I'm looking at you, Jason!)
- EU adaptor, if your plug pins are an odd shape!
- headphones (vital for the journey!)
It's not virtual this year and we like to hug!
- other toiletries and grooming kit
- check what else you need if you're staying in an Airbnb! (Towel, shampoo, etc)
- passport (check the validity!)
- visa (if required)
- health insurance card, if your country has one (e.g. EHIC, GHIC) - this still includes UK residents post-brexit
- travel insurance documentation, if not travelling with work or you don't have a health insurance card
- flight/train tickets (remember to check in!)
- hotel reservation details
- train reservation details (it can be cheaper and easier to prebook!)
- fee-free payment card (Revolut*, Monzo* and Starling* are popular options in the UK, register now to save money next time)
- Danish Kroner (optional, almost everywhere in Denmark accepts card and some places will refuse cash)
- backpack/bag - handy for lugging your stuff around the venues
- water bottle - remember to empty before airport security, but you can usually fill it up again before the flight!
- reusable coffee cup (free coffee, but make it eco!)
- sun cream (you never know!)
- sun glasses
- notebook & pen
- snacks for the journey
- entertainment for the journey - offline games, podcasts, movies, audiobooks and/or ebooks (or an analogue book if you're so inclined)
Presenting? Or pitching for a lightning talk?

- laser pointer
So grab your laptops, charge up your brain cells, and get ready to embark on a wild journey where coding meets camaraderie, where networking knows no bounds, and where the exchange of knowledge is only rivaled by the exchange of witty tech puns. 🤓
I'll see you there!
