Program / Overview



Devcon is geared toward Ethereum's builders, creators, and thinkers who wish to improve this world. Programming at Devcon takes a holistic approach and aims to engage all attendees through talks, panels, workshops, lightning talks, and freeform learning sessions.

Speaker Applications


This year's Devcon will be similar to those before it - expect to see amazing talks, panels, and participate in workshops and sessions. Some speakers will be invited to speak, while others will apply via the speaker application process.

Devcon Programming Values

    Devcon is an opportunity to share the Ethereum Foundations vision and values with the world.

  4. Building bridges with other communities

Track Playlists


  • What types of talks are there?

    Devcon makes a point of delivering a holistic learning experience through talks, workshops, panels, lightning sessions, and other freeform formats! Everyone learns in their own way, and we aim to accommodate as many styles as possible.

  • Who can be a speaker at Devcon?

    Devcon has a public application process. Applications for speakers are now closed.

  • Who decides on the speakers at Devcon?

    In recognition that the Devcon speaker application process has been very competitive in past years, we are doing our best to make the review process as fair, unbiased, and as open as possible for all. All speaker applications are reviewed by teams of community experts who analyze each application relevant to their area of expertise and collaborate together to make the final decision.

Ecosystem Supporters

This year, aligned teams will have the opportunity to contribute toward Ethereum-related public goods in a Devcon-specific effort to grow the Ethereum ecosystem, and further technologies that help us move forward together. In lieu of a traditional sponsorship program, team-based ticket allocations will be distributed to participating groups as a thank you to those who give back to the Ethereum community.
