Terranea Resort | 100 Terranea Way | Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275 | 1.310.265.2800

The second edition of Code Conference was held at the picturesque Terranea Resort, located on a breathtaking stretch of Pacific coastline in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, just 30 miles south of Los Angeles.

Previously the home of Marineland of the Pacific, a seaside animal theme park, and subsequently used as a set location for various major motion pictures and television productions, these 102 beautifully landscaped acres house an exquisite Mediterranean-style resort, with a host of fine dining options, a world-class spa, a nine-hole golf course and stunning ocean views.

Driving Directions

For driving directions to the Terranea Resort, please click here.


The southern California Pacific Coast enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate with over 300 days of sunshine per year. Summers are dry due to a semi-permanent high-pressure system that sits in the Pacific Ocean and holds storm tracks well to the north. Warm air moving over the cool ocean in summer creates fog that moves in during the evening and early morning hours but almost always dissipates by midday.

The average year-round high temperature is 65°F (19°C). The average temperatures in late May and early June range from the low 70’s during the day to the high 50’s at night.

Media, Recording & Photography Policy

Code Conference stage is on the record for journalistic and editorial purposes. Journalists may quote anything the speakers and Executive Producers say onstage in stories or blog posts. Interviews that occur offstage in the hallways or at social gatherings are subject to whatever ground rules are agreed upon between parties at the time of the interview.

Still photos, taken from your seats, are OK. We ask that you do not use flash so as not to distract or annoy the speakers or others in attendance. Do not stand or crouch in the aisles or near the stage, as this interferes with our official show photographer, whose photos will be posted online for use by members of the media.

Finally, video and audio recordings are strictly prohibited, as we consider the audio and video content of our stage to be copyrighted. Similarly, while we respect fair-use reprinting of short text quotes, we do consider full transcripts of the conference to be our intellectual property.

This policy applies to all conference attendees.
