WeAreDevelopers World Congress rescheduled to 28-29th June 2021

August 11th, 2020

Dear community & friends,

We hope that you and your close ones are healthy and safe. 

Today we have some exciting news for you. We know that you are as excited to meet all together face-to-face next year in Berlin at the WeAreDevelopers World Congress as we are. 

You might know how crucial your support and your feedback is for us. After receiving a lot of feedback from our attendees, speakers and partners, we want to make your next experience as great and as safe as possible. Therefore we decided together with the congress venue, Messe Berlin, to shift the date towards summer. So we’re very happy to see you all on June 28-29, 2021, with a lot of insightful sessions, world-class speakers, like-minded peers and lots of fun for the whole WeAreDevelopers family. If you have any questions, please refer to the FAQs for more information.

Moreover, we promised to provide you with new experiences powered by WeAreDevelopers – and so we did. After successfully introducing the WeAreDevelopers Live format, last May the first edition of the WeAreDevelopers Live Week took place and exceeded our expectations. Thanks to 12,000+ developers, 40+ speakers, and our partners who participated in our free virtual event loaded with educational and inspirational dev talks about trends, technologies, and challenges of tomorrow in software development. 

The second edition of the WeAreDevelopers Live Week is already in the making and will take off on 5-9th October, 2020. Participation is free again for you – join us! Also, check out our ongoing Live sessions for developers! 

Thank you so much for your trust and support!

Stay safe and healthy,
Your WeAreDevelopers team

The Covid-19 pandemic has fully hit event organizers in 2020. As a young and small organization we generate most of our income from major events such as the WeAreDevelopers World Congress and rely on this revenue in order to serve the developer community and sustain our organization. This is secured by our employees, the driving force behind WeAreDevelopers, who work tirelessly to provide you with our events, platform and content throughout the year. Therefore we are not refunding purchased tickets at this time, but we are making sure you won’t lose your booked services. However, based on the event voucher solution (Article 240-5 EGBG), which has been introduced by the German legislation in the light of Covid-19 pandemic, we will still issue you a refund at a later point if you booked your ticket before March 31st and elect to cancel your ticket or if you don’t redeem one of the above listed options until December 31, 2021. So, in any case you will either experience the full benefits as a ticket holder, make use of one of the above listed options or receive a refund at a later stage. Therefore you are on the safe side and won’t lose your funds or booked services.

In the meanwhile we have already used the time to further improve the experience at the World Congress and created additional benefits for all participants. We have also introduced exciting new online formats (go to WeAreDevelopers Live) which you can join free of charge. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us at [email protected].
