DevBeat — hosted by VentureBeat on November 12-13 in San Francisco — is the can’t-miss event for those bright, motivated, mid-career developers.

What to Expect:

  • Take ‘master classes’ on Node, Angular, Python, and more
  • Dive into workshops on security, design, and dev team leadership
  • Hear talks from hackers like DHH, Stallman, Lerdorf, and many others
  • Make decisions about what to learn, do, and be in the years to come
  • Hack hardware hands-on with your peers
  • Venture deeper into polyglot territory
  • Explore new career paths

The program is high-level but hands-on. It features two main tracks — one with focused ‘master classes’ and active participation, and one with lean-back learning in sessions with world-class guests and modern hacker heroes. Register here with code “Gizmo” and save 20%.
