Early Bird sales are now open for DevConf, South Africa’s top forum for software developers. Now entering its fourth year, DevConf is again pioneering future thinking with an enhanced focus on inclusivity and exciting new opportunities for sponsors to make a big impact.
DevConf, a standing room only success since inception, will be staged at the River Club in Cape Town on 26 March 2019 and Vodacom World in Midrand on 28 March 2019. Delivering multiple tracks on the hottest global topics in enterprise software development, DevConf has become SA’s go-to event for staying on top of global development trends, tools and techniques.
As the key local developer ‘think forum’, DevConf is also set to pioneer new levels of inclusivity in 2019. To overcome a ‘cis white monoculture’ in presentations, DevConf used an anonymous paper selection process for 2019. The 2019 event will also offer a selection of pronoun stickers which delegates can attach to their name tags. “This follows advances by the likes of Microsoft and Google at international events. We hope this will start a larger dialogue in our industry in South Africa,” say organisers Robert MacLean and Candice Mesk.
In response to sponsor demand, DevConf 2019 will offer updated packages that allow sponsors to ‘stand out and shine’ with innovative displays and interactive spaces; as well as a range of live demos for practical, engaging learning.
DevConf traditionally attracts more than 700 delegates in Johannesburg and 500 in Cape Town, with tickets selling out quickly. Click here to book your seat now!
