TypeCon has always be known for providing a healthy dose of education, friendship, community, stories, and of course … type.

However, our humble conference is also known for something else … the amazing soundtrack that fits in between all of the regularly scheduled presentations.

For years, those playlists have been lovingly (and thematically) compiled by our production guru, JP Porter. Even though this year’s conference is virtual, the soundtrack was still part of the plan.

“… the order of these songs is the important factor of my playlists. It’s not random. I start at cut one and go in order to the end … a few deviations … but mostly it’s predesigned and thought out.” — JP Porter
