The 2018 Code Conference concluded yesterday with our inaugural Code University, a series of talks on science, business and how to be a better leader. Attendees heard from Ben Thompson of Stratechery, directors from The Second City improv school and Carbon Robotics’ CEO on the future of robots. And they learned how to take a moonshot.
