Why Attend DevReach

From hallway conversations to adventures around Boston, cocktail hours to engaging dev sessions with industry leaders, we can’t wait to open our doors to you—in person!

There are so many reasons to join us live in Boston for DevReach! Here are four. The rest you’ll need to experience for yourself.

Hone Your Craft

This incredible developer event will have more than 40 sessions dedicated to everything from Blazor, Angular and React, to the future of .NET, the democratization of apps through accessibility and design as well as testing, debugging, mocking and more. Gain actionable knowledge and meaningful insight into trends from some of the smartest folks in our space.

Connect with People

DevReach offers big conference caliber speakers and events at a local conference price. It will provide ample opportunity to chat with the folks in your community, engage with industry experts and meet with Progress leaders.Attending in-person provides an immersive experience that’s hard to match.

Community Time

Even if you go into a physical office to work, your bubble of people can feel isolating, even more so if you’ve fully embraced work-from-home. Many returning to in-person conferences leave refreshed and revitalized, and we know it can do the same for you. Time spent with fellow developers is never time wasted. The networking and idea sharing is truly invaluable.

Learn Hard, Play Hard

Step away from your desk monitors and home offices and forge human connections in a lively venue designed to stimulate and inspire. DevReach offers opportunities to swap stories with like-minded peers and thought leaders in a way you can’t accomplish online. Explore Fun Things to Do on DevReach

And Even More Things to Do and Visit…

Boston North End

This Italian neighborhood, Boston’s oldest, is known for its wonderful restaurants and historic sights. Walk the cobblestone streets, take in the aromas of delicious food and visit Paul Revere’s house while you’re in the neighborhood.

Museum of Fine Arts

Explore more than 100 galleries of art, from ancient to contemporary, at the MFA or visit the unique Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the home to the largest property theft in the world.

Boston Public Garden

Take a walk through the Public Gardens areas. You’ll see the bench where Robin Williams sat during Goodwill Hunting, beautiful gardens and swan boats across the water. After you walk the Gardens the Boston Common, stroll down Newbury Street, a famous shopping and dining district in Boston.

Harvard Square

If you have the time, Harvard Square is a good take - roughly 20 minutes from Seaport. You can walk Harvard’s campus, check out their book store, dine in the local restaurants and cafes and stop in a handful of shops.

Harpoon Brewery

Located in Seaport and home to New England’s original IPA, you can take a tour of the brewery or simply take a seat in the beer hall (be sure to order their famous pretzels).


A near-continuous, 43-mile linear park along Boston’s shoreline, the Harborwalk connects Boston’s waterfront neighborhoods to Boston Harbor and each other. And lucky for you, the Seaport stretch of the Harbor has the most beautiful views and great bars and restaurants nearby.

Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Built in 1742 and now a stop on the Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall has had a long and important history in Massachusetts politics. Samuel Adams once stood here to push for resistance against the British, and abolitionists and suffragists have stood on their soapboxes here.
