More than a conference

We stand by values like these to create experiences that redefine developer events—and keep our community coming back for more.

People > pitches

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

Passion > consensus

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

People > technology

Our events tell the stories of the individuals behind the tools, not just the tools themselves.

Most developer events are very transactional, but GitHub events aren’t at all. The aesthetic is intentional, the conversations are meaningful, and all of our customers are happy to be there.

GitHub events are more like magical productions than conferences – like Disneyland except with an octocat instead of Mickey. The GitHub Team considers every detail and makes it easy for sponsors to plug into it all. We couldn’t have been happier with the experience.

We know we can count on having real conversations with people at GitHub events, and that attendees aren’t just​ ​visiting booths to get free stuff. GitHub​ ​strives to build an interactive environment for both sponsors and attendees, which creates real value.
