About DevConf

DevConf.CZ 2022 is the 14th annual, free, Red Hat sponsored community conference for developers, admins, DevOps engineers, testers, documentation writers and other contributors to open source technologies. At DevConf.CZ, FLOSS communities sync, share, and hack on upstream projects together.

Doubleshot at DevConf.CZ 2022

Our attendees always tell us how important it is to grab a cup of coffee at and sit down in the hall for a chat with long-time friends and new acquaintances. We couldn't meet in Brno last year so we worked with our friends at doubleshot to put together a coffee tasting for you to enjoy during the conference. We're pleased to have worked with them again to bring this experience back in 2022!

Doubleshot has chosen three coffees to compliment your experience at the DevConf.CZ 2022 virtual conference. One coffee for each day (3 x 70 g) plus one bonus coffee for the day before or day after.

You can order your coffee on their website for 197 CZK (~7.5 EUR) plus shipping. Order deadlines vary by country, so order early. We look forward to seeing you online.
