If one thing is clear to us at after a decade of hosting technology events, it’s that learning is an important component — but not as important as meeting other smart people.

That’s why attendees of our annual Developers Conference are invited first and foremost for the professional development value, and there’s always a built-in networking component for those who want to boost their network.

This year’s conference will be held virtually on Tuesday, May 11, during Philly Tech Week 2021 presented by Comcast. For the first time, it’s free — and better yet, for the job seekers among us, there’s a hiring fair component. That means it’s a chance for professional moves, too.

Whether you’re looking for a new role or quite happy but curious, squeeze some time to go say hi to the growing tech teams that want to meet you, and who also help support’s independent journalism via their sponsorship. Here’s a preview of who you’ll be able to meet at the Developers Conference and lunchtime jobs fair:

The heart of the day, though, is a chance for genuine deep dives into a range of technical deployments. Expect eight presentations following three main themes: Experimentation, Growth and At Scale. Final session topics are being finalized but will feature real, learning-focused case studies from both big brands like Comcast, Vanguard and URBN and from growth-stage firms.

For a taste of what’s to come, check out presentations from last fall’s edition of the event. We’ll see you at the Developers Conference 2021 on Tuesday, May 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
