GitHub Universe 2024

Fort Mason Pavillion, San Francisco, CA and livestreamed on githubuniverse.com

Universe is a global, three-day event for builders and leaders alike who are taking their software development to new heights every day.

More than 100 million developers across the world use GitHub. Now in our 9th year, GitHub Universe is the developer event where brands meet their current and future customers to collaborate and shape the future. Universe 2023 will bring together thousands of attendees—both in-person and online—to explore the knowledge and tools needed to do more with less, innovate at scale, and enjoy work every day.

And we’re bringing even more magic to the attendee experience with an expo hall with our partners, more stages for our session types, interactive workshops, AI activations, and over 80 sessions on topics like AI, security, and developer experience.

This year’s themes


From chatbots to coding assistants and so much more, AI has transformed how developers work—coding faster than ever before, closing skill gaps more efficiently, and finding their work more satisfying. The next frontier in the development of AI is happening now. At Universe, we will focus on the impacts of AI on developers and organizations, issues of trust, and where AI is headed next.


Security is integral to every stage of the software development cycle. This means protecting software supply chains from dependency-based vulnerabilities, using AI-powered and proactive security features to prevent and fix vulnerabilities in code, and understanding the latest compliance standards, threats, and research.

Developer experience

What does developer experience mean? Less friction, more productivity? Finding more time for creativity, collaboration, and innovation? How to stay in the flow? How to leverage GitHub’s platform and features? This theme will focus on driving collaboration, simplifying tech stacks, reducing onboarding times, and prioritizing developer-first security for the betterment of teams, customers, careers, and communities.

Who you’ll reach

While we primarily design experiences for developers and GitHub customers, professionals from every part of the software industry come to GitHub Universe to find their next great idea. From Fortune 100 companies to start ups to open source contributors, attendees from all types of companies care about collaboration, productivity, and the tools that make their teams just a little more efficient—and they're waiting to hear from you.

Sponsor experience

Universe is all about the symbiotic relationship between our community of global developers and our ecosystem of partners. We ensure the right people are in the room, so every conversation you have is high value.

We believe that great attendee experiences lead to even greater outcomes for our partners, and we do that by creating moments that redefine developer events—and keep our community coming back for more.


You bring your brand vision, we’ll do the heavy lifting. With the help of our experiential design agency, we’ll bring your physical and digital presence to life.


We understand that no two sponsors are alike. We’ll work with you to customize your sponsorship so that you can get in front of the right people at the right time.

Beyond the booth

Let your dollars go further with a sponsorship that fosters high-quality conversations that drive impact––from surprise and delight add-ons to curated opportunities for connection.

More than a global conference

We stand by the values below to help us craft unparalleled experiences that fosters our community’s loyalty and desire for more year after year.

People > pitches

Our community wants to see products in action and have conversations about them, not get product pitches at every turn.

Passion > consensus

Universe aims to amplify the ideas that challenge us from a wide range of people and industries, not just the most popular ones.

People > technology

Universe tells the stories of the individuals behind the tools, not just the tools themselves
