Attending a new conference can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. That’s why we have a number of features and events that can help you feel at home, meet new people in our field, and get the most out of your DevLearn conference experience.
Our Morning Buzz orientation session, happening at 7:30a on the first day of the conference (October 25), gives you a quick overview of everything you need to know to get started, including how to find your way around the event space, what event features you’ll want to take time to check out, and tips on how to get the most value from your conference experience.
The DevLearn app is your most reliable source for up-to-date information about the event. It includes information about the full conference program, maps of the conference space, an activity feed to connect with fellow attendees, and more. You can also build your own personalized schedule. Full app functionality will be available closer to the event.

What Makes DevLearn Different From Other Conferences?
What makes DevLearn unique is the community that gathers at the event. It’s a unique group of learning professionals that share a passion for leveraging technology to enhance learning and push our field forward. People don’t just come to DevLearn to learn; they come to DevLearn to be a part of discussions that are shaping the future of the work we do.
This theme is present through all of the elements of the conference, from our keynotes to our sessions to the Expo and more. There are also a few things taking place that are exclusive to DevLearn that directly support this theme. Here are a few:
An attendee favorite, DemoFest is like an informal science fair for learning projects. You’ll get to see hands-on demos of projects and talk to the creators about the tools and techniques they used, the challenges they faced, and how the final project has performed since launch.
These sessions start early in the day, but they’re worth getting up for. Rather than formal presentations, Morning Buzz sessions are informal discussions where people come to talk, peer-to-peer, about a topic or trend in L&D.
