The annual gathering of South African software developers and professionals, DevConf, will be held for the fifth time in 2020 – on 31 March in Cape Town and on 2 April in Johannesburg.

DevConf host Robert MacLean says the conference and exhibition has become the most popular software engineering event in South Africa and is expected to draw some 1 300 participants next year.

“It targets professional software developers, from solo developers to anyone who works in mid- to large-sized organisations who develop systems of all sizes for enterprise companies," he says.

The conference will feature renowned international and local experts in the software development field, addressing a variety of topics that are relevant to the software development industry across the world such as languages and technology, diversity and inclusion, architecture and domain design and mental health in technology.  

“The programme will also offer practical advice from experts on how specific problems have been solved and on methodology to work together,” MacLean says.

DevConf organisers – the non-profit organisation The Developer Group   are currently reviewing papers received from potential speakers and the conference programme will be announced in November.
