It’s the 12th annual Philly Tech Week presented by Comcast, and that means the return of the Developers Conference — with a new twist on how it’s been done in the past.

With the move toward in-person events again, we wanted to apply lessons from the last two years and create a unique hybrid experience blending the best elements of virtual and IRL programming.

On Tuesday, May 10, over 150 local technologists gathered at Perpay’s gorgeous office overlooking the Schuylkill River for a series of focused huddle group discussions, and before the event, we shared pre-recorded talks on a sampling of the latest tech trends and challenges.

We’re making those videos public now, so if you couldn’t make it to Dev Conf this year, check out the videos below and click here for the full playlist.
