GitHub Universe

November 13-14, 2019

San Francisco, CA

GitHub Universe is a two-day community and product conference dedicated to the people who push technology forward.

GitHub Universe

Universe brings together thousands of attendees from all areas of the software community to explore the future of development and the tools that can help us get there.

The full program offers attendees two days of discovery with executive keynotes, speakers from prominent software companies, workshops, an after party, and lots of opportunities to network in between.

1800 Attendees

40 Sponsors

2 Days + Workshops

Aaron Upright
We like getting leads, but we care a lot more about having quality conversations. The developers we meet as sponsors are genuinely interested in a two-way conversation about our products, so we end up getting so much more out of GitHub events than your typical conferences.
