DevConf.US 2020 Goes Virtual!

In response to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to make DevConf.US 2020 a virtual event. While we are disappointed that we won’t be able to see you all in person, the well-being of our attendees required us to make this decision. We also recognize that we are making this decision, seemingly, very early. However, in order to shift to an awesome virtual event, we need a lot of lead time for the organizers, volunteers and speakers to produce an entirely different event.

Topics
  • Application Development with Serverless & Containerization

    Application Development has gone through a number of changes in recent years with sophisticated tools, remote development environments, AI support, etc. Not to mention new deployment methods like serverless/functions, containers, and cloud-native.
