WeAreDevelopers World Congress 2018

Austria Center Vienna

16 - 18 May

The Woodstock of Developers

Behind every amazing tech innovation today are developers - these unique creatures that are able to turn coffee into software, using code as their primary instrument. Since 2015, once a year, on a (hopefully) sunny day, the global community meets at WeAreDevelopers, an event dubbed by many as the “Woodstock of Developers”.

WeAreDevelopers World Congress 2018 will bring together 8,000 techies from 70 countries for 72-hours of pure dev-fun, with more than 150 of the brightest minds in tech and the largest playground for developers in Europe.

Masters of Doom Book

We’ve all had that one hero, that one person whose life story inspired us beyond anything else to achieve greatness. For many gamers, that person was John Romero, one of the world’s best game designers whose products have won over a hundred awards to prove it.

Masters of Doom is the amazing true story of the Lennon and McCartney of video games: John Romero and John Carmack. Together, they ruled big business. They transformed popular culture. And they provoked a national controversy.

Pre-order the book here and pick up your custom-signed copy by John Romero himself at the 17th of May from 13:30 to 14:30 at the WeAreDevelopers booth!
