Everything you need to know about DeveloperWeek

Developers, do you know about DeveloperWeek? If not, it’s the world’s largest developer expo and conference series, and includes the Bay Area DeveloperWeek 2020 event coming to the Oakland Convention Center, Feb. 12-16, 2020. This multi-track, co-located conference with 200+ speakers attracts thousands of developers from all over the world, all of whom will discover the latest in developer technologies, languages, platforms and tools.

DeveloperWeek

DeveloperWeek 2020 isn’t your normal, every-day conference. It offers numerous co-conferences and tracks, such as Javascript Conference, AI Dev Conference, API Microservices, DevLead Conference, Cloud-Native Containers & Kubernetes Track, and more. Details on these conferences are available in the conference schedule. In addition to hearing best practices on the latest technologies, you’ll have the opportunity to connect and hear from companies such as Google, LinkedIn, IBM, and of course, Intuit. 

You’ll have the chance to team up with your fellow developers and compete against over 1,000 others in the nation’s largest challenge driven-hackathon. We’ve heard testimonials from many developers who said that this hackathon helped them develop friendships that led to future collaboration.

The conference sports the largest Dev Tech Expo in the United States with more than 100 booths. Intuit will be exhibiting. so please stop by and visit us at Booth #101. We’ll be focusing on our Open Source projects, sharing details about our platform for third-party developers, and looking to meet rock stars to join our technology teams.
