Each year, 8,000+ developers, engineers, software architects, dev teams, managers and executives from 70+ countries gather in the SF Bay Area — the world’s epicenter of developer innovation — for DeveloperWeek (Feb 12-16, 2020) to discover the latest in developer technologies, languages, platforms, and tools.

DeveloperWeek 2020 is San Francisco’s largest developer conference & event series with dozens of week-long events including the DeveloperWeek 2020 Conference & Expo, 1,000+ attendee hackathon, 1000+ attendee tech hiring expo, and a series of workshops, open houses, drink-ups, and city-wide events across San Francisco!

Because DeveloperWeek covers all new technologies, our conference and workshops invite you to get intro lessons (or advanced tips and tricks) on technologies like VR Dev, Artificial Intelligence Dev, Blockchain Dev, IoT Dev, Serverless technology, Microservices technology, new JavaScript frameworks, and more.

New to DeveloperWeek is DevExec World, which is 2 days of roundtable talks, educational talks, and networking events for engineering managers, tech executives, and lead developers.

DeveloperWeek puts the spotlight on new technologies. Companies that participated in past DeveloperWeek events include Google, Facebook, Yelp, Rackspace, IBM, Cloudera, Red Hat, Optimizely, SendGrid, Blackberry, Microsoft, Neo Technology, Eventbrite, Klout,, Ripple, GNIP, Tagged, HackReactor, and 30+ more here!

When it comes to technology, there’s incremental change, and then there’s fundamental innovation. Developer technology, from blockchain and artificial intelligence to big data and quantum computing represents fundamental innovation that people can build on for years. We are in the DevTech Age, where developer technologies and tools are now the most disruptive and fundamental technology innovation in the marketplace. When you build tools for developers, you are not just implementing a small incremental use case, you are building platforms, frameworks, and APIs that will enable entirely new web, mobile, and IoT innovation.
