World Congress 2019

6th-7th June

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 brought 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.
