Why we do it?
For us tretton37 knowledge and knowledge sharing has always been of utmost importance. Our business model hinges on sharing knowledge, not only with our clients but also with the community and each other. Sharing knowledge with everyone around us is our primary way of creating additional value in our world.
When we work with our clients we share what we know on a daily basis. Not only through the work we do but also through seminars, code-camps, retrospects, and workshops. It is important for us to let our clients have access to our collective knowledge.
Amongst each other we have a solid autonomous knowledge sharing strategy that is built on each individual's responsibility. In practice this means we put a little piece of the organization's resources in everyone's hands so that they themselves can decide what and how to learn. This is facilitated by meet-ups called Knowledge Tribes. In addition to this we have Knowabunga days (full days devoted to knowledge sharing with our fellow colleagues), our Dojo intranet, and Leetspeak, our own conference. We also run a Strategy day where everyone (yes, every single person in the company!) has a chance to directly influence the development of the company.
We give back to our community through knowledge tribes, discussion forums, Leetspeak (the conference created out of desire to whip up inspiring, hardcore technical content), code retreats, numerous other events and our blog.

From October 1-31 we will run as much as we can to benefit a charity of our choice. For each 1337 meters we run, tretton37 will donate 50 SEK to the organization Girls in Tech.By Madeleine Schönemann at 2016-09-29
The idea of Leetspeak goes beyond a conference, it is a concept built on the love for knowledge. It is a gathering for hungry developers and a place for the community to meet and interact.
We started Leetspeak in 2012 and it is aimed at developers who are eager to stay at the forefront of the knowledge game. We want to bring inspiring, hardcore technical content to those who need (and want) to know.
Community has always been a cornerstone for us and Leetspeak is yet another way by which we are able to reach out to fellow developers.
