We Unpacked Email Together
Over 700 members of the email community registered to attend two days of live coding, career development panels, and the latest walkthroughs of how to build an email design system of your own. We celebrated industry accomplishments, and joked about rubber ducking. We can’t wait for Parcel Unpacked 2.0!
Parcel Unpacked will kickoff with a note of community gratitude from Avi for not only the speakers that are contributing to the wealth of emailgeek knowledge but also the audience for coming together in support of this two-day event.

Why is interactive email important? How does interactive email work? How do I implement interactive email? In this talk, we’ll go over the reasons why interactive email performs better than normal emails, and we’ll even have a live coding example to build one together!
Email development is hard. Snap your emails into place by creating the building blocks you need for success as we dive into the technical aspects of creating a powerful email design system in Parcel. Join us to learn how to leverage components, contexts, and JSON to dynamically change visual branding, copy, and more.
The accomplishments of 2022 shouldn't go unnoticed. Join us for Day Two's kickoff, including a recap of major email milestones that we encountered in 2022. The launch of the Email Markup Consortium, greater BIIMI support, and salary transparency within the emailgeeks community have contributed to positive strides forward for both developers and the emails we send!

The path to email dev success isn’t a linear one. How, as developers, did we get here, and where will this career take us? Hear from a panel of email experts on their own career journeys and words of wisdom towards navigating your own.
