Software is eating the world. Our lives have billions of problems - or billions of opportunities, based on how you look at it. Software solutions drive much of modern economies and developers have a huge opportunity to shape the quality of human lives. While cloud computing fabric and artificial intelligence may shape our tomorrow, the onus will be on developers to craft humane solutions that enrich lives.

Developers learn best from each other and need to stay on top of the latest technologies. Sharing success and failures is how we learn to architect elegant software solutions. Towards this bigger goal of developer education, we're proud to announce DevReach 2018.

The Why

We're planning on making DevReach 2018 an event for you to remember - the best software developer conference in Central & Eastern Europe. Why, you may ask? 2018 marks the 10 year anniversary of DevReach. We've been putting on DevReach conference for a decade now and yes, that is a big deal. DevReach 2018 promises top notch content, networking amongst the best minds and whole lot of fun. Come join us - you won't want to miss this.


The What

Ok, let's break down the promise of DevReach 2018 - here it is in a nutshell:

  • 3 workshops
  • 3 inspiring keynotes
  • 42+ technical sessions
  • 1 awesome attendee party

DevReach begins this year with a pre-conference day - so you get more out of the time you invest in joining us. Two veterans of our industry - Jim Holmes and David Neal, will host a leadership workshop. This is your opportunity to explore your potential and get hands-on experience that will help you take the next step in your career.

We all need to make our tech industry as welcoming as possible for everyone - and a big part of that entails empowering women. We'll be hosting two hands-on workshops driven by wonderful smart developers - VueVixens and ngGirls. Come join us to code your imagination and let sky be the limit.

Each of the two main conference days at DevReach will kick off with future-facing keynotes, with Richard Campbell and Patricia Realini sharing their tech vision. Then starts the amazing lineup of high quality technical sessions from our stellar speaker lineup - throughout the day to immerse our heads in hardcore software solutions. Here's a smattering of what to expect:

  • The latest developer trends across web/mobile/desktop
  • .NET ecosystem updates
  • AR/VR with .NET
  • The state & future of JavaScript for web & mobile
  • The latest tooling in the web stack
  • Serverless computing
  • AI/ML, Bots & IoT
  • UX best practices

And this year, we'll close out DevReach with a bang - an inpiring closing keynote by David Neal.

We would not be able to pull off DevReach without the support of our wonderful sponsors - a big thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Did we mention cool swag, yummy food and gourmet coffee to power your days at DevReach? DevReach promises to provide a welcoming environment for all and respect for diversity - in both humans and technologies. Bottom line - come learn, network and have fun with some of the smartest developers, designers and thinkers from all over the world.
