DevCon aims to be a by-the-community for-the-community software development conference. The goal is to have a yearly event, supported by carefully picked companies that care for the quality of our craft and staying up-to-date with new web and mobile technologies, languages, patterns and libraries. DevCon is accessible to everyone, focusing on in-depth talks, held by proven professionals from domestic and international IT communities. A conference with an accepting environment that provides space for making friends instead of recruitment, marketing or sales event. A place in which you can learn and meet like-minded folks that love what they do. Everyone likes being around like-minded people!
