devcom is your year-round experience

We enjoyed every single devcom conference in the past years.
But we realized that coming together only once a year for just a few days to engage with our community simply doesn’t cut it.

This feeling eventually sparked the process of rethinking the concept behind devcom, making it rather a 365-day experience. A chance to grow and nurture our audience and make devcom a hub for the global game dev community to come together throughout the whole year.

So in 2020, we started to produce original content with live shows on Twitch, podcasts on audio platforms and community channels on Discord. Additionally, online master classes and digital summits dedicated to specific topics further expand our original conference concept.
