You love it, hate it, debug it, dream about it, obsess over it, test it, throw it away… because you don’t just write code.
#DevTO, a place for all, regardless of age, experience or sex to gather and collaborate on the problems we face while developing applications. You may not be a developer, but even if you have written a bit of HTML you should come out.
These problems are as broad as our job descriptions, can’t figure out how to get that interface to look good in Chrome and Safari? Not sure how to deploy code to multiple servers with no downtime? What is the best way integrate social media into your projects? I’m sure at some point you’ve all run into something like one of the problems above, so why not share it and benefit from the experience of others.
DevTO has had a mixture of attendees ranging from developers, architects, designers and CIOs, to PR, marketing and recruiters. It is a laid back environment for everybody involved in development projects; small or big, to chat, network and learn from each other. Each month we get around 100 people to come out and learn from 2 presentations from different people in the industry and then mingle with the crowd the rest of the evening.
#DevTO happens on the last Monday of every month in Toronto. The event is free but has limited spots and we sell out fast! Tickets are released in blocks so if you miss the first block you can try for the next. Pizza is provided to attendees so don’t worry about dinner that night, just show up and be ready for a great time!
How do I learn more?
We make announcements on this website and on @devto Twitter account. Follow us there for event announcements and updates.

How can I present?
Email your topic to email@example.com and we will get you scheduled in an upcoming event. The talks are typically 15-20min long followed by Q&A. Each month we pick two presentations; a non-technical one, and a technical one. Because the talks are short they are intended to be more of an overview of that topic to spur conversations about it during the rest of the evening.
