Byron has been developing software since he was 9 years old, coding RPG's on his Commodore 64 and his best friend's Apple IIe.

The event includes workshops, seminars, panel discussions, open spaces, lightning talks and the Geek Jam Lunch where attendees participate in the Music City experience.

The Music City Code conference is organized by developer community leaders who have collectively formed a minority-led non-profit organization in Tennessee (TN Control 000822893) which is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) public charity. MCC organizers and crew members are volunteers, and all monies collected from sponsors go towards the conference and its related expenses.
