BohConf is a 1-day, multi-track, unconf-inspired conference dedicated to learning about the latest technologies and practices in the web and mobile design/development worlds.

Professionals and enthusiasts of all backgrounds are encouraged to attend, participate, and most importantly: get engaged.

In supporting this mission BohConf is inexpensive and accessible to everyone.

Follow @bohconf for the latest news.


BohConf will take place at University of Baltimore's Thumel Business Center at 11 W Mt Royal Ave, Baltimore, MD 21201.

There are hotels in the area but we encourage you to stay for free with some locals. Tweet @bohconf and we'll help you out.

BohConf will take place on the Friday of Artscape. Plan accordingly, especially if you were considering driving. We encourage you to checkout Artscape after BohConf wraps up on Friday!

UB is conveniently located near Baltimore Penn Station, so it would be easy to take the MARC or Amtrak for the day. Read more information on getting to BohConf / Artscape.
