The fifth edition of DevRelCon London is just a couple of weeks away. Here’s a preview of what to expect.
For the first time DevRelCon London this year will take place over three full days:
If you want to dive deep on dev rel topics, then the training day will be ideal for you. We have a limited number of places left to hear from experts including:
Each session lasts half a day, so you’ll be able to take part in two sessions across the training day.
On the main conference days we’re going bigger than ever before. We’ll be back at the QEII Centre, in Westminster, with three concurrent tracks! Alongside our usual dev rel and DX tracks we’ll also have dedicated documentation and community tracks this year:

In total, we’ll have more than 50 sessions, with speakers such as the founder of Techladies, Elisha Tan, Google’s Head of Global Programs (DevRel Ecosystem), Uttam Tripathi, MongoDB’s Head of Engineering Communications, Avery Rosen, Mozilla’s Jessica Rose, and many more.
As is now becoming customary for DevRelCon, we’ll end the whole thing with a karaoke after-party sponsored by Bose. You’re not obliged to sing, or even be near the singers!
On the Monday evening, the London DevRel meet-up group will be hosting a social get together. Tuesday sees the official DevRelCon reception, sponsored by Google, and there’ll also by a Community Managers meet-up nearby.
DevRelCon has always been an event by dev rel practitioners for dev rel practitioners. Tickets are available now and, if you’re from an under-represented group, you can apply for a diversity ticket funded by Google’s Open Source Programs Office. If you feel you don’t belong to an under-represented group but you can’t afford to buy a ticket at the standard price, get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.
The entire DevRelCon event series is possible only thanks to the support of our amazing sponsors. This year, we’re proud to be working with:
As organisers, we at the developer relations consultancy Hoopy are excited to meet the hundreds of dev rel, DX, community, docs, and other professionals from around the world who will be joining us in London this December!
Indeed has seen a huge uptick in Hacktoberfest participation from their engineering team. Hear how they did it.
People were organising communities long before developer relations. So what can we learn from those that went before?
