May 14, 2024 update: the call for speakers is now closed.

Imagine arriving at a conference and immediately feeling inspired: your agenda is packed with must-see GitHub Copilot sessions, booths are filled with experts from top tech companies, and you’re surrounded by thousands of fellow developers and leaders eager to connect.

That is the experience we’re curating for the 10th anniversary of our global developer event. This year, we’re going bigger and better with a stunning new venue as the foundation. We hope you’ll join us at the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture on the San Francisco Bay, from October 29-30, or virtually from anywhere in the world.
