About Us

Devhub is a community space for developers of all levels. Our mission is to engage the developer community and provide a hub where devs can come to work, learn, and exchange knowledge. We achieve our mission, in part, by putting on educational events for developers including Lunch&&Learns and Workshops.

Workshops for Developers

Half or full day hands-on Workshops aimed to expand the skill set of developers. These usually happen twice a month on Saturdays, and tickets for attendees are $100 each. Speakers will be paid for their time. Example here.

Devhub events are a great platform for current & aspiring speakers in the tech community to network, share their knowledge, and become part of a bigger initiative promoting lifelong learning. We collaborate with our speaker partners to build interest on a topic through our Lunch&&Learn series, then expand on these ideas in depth and through hands-on learning in a Workshop format. If you are approved for a Workshop, we will ask you to also give a Lunch&&Learn beforehand, though this is not mandatory.

These are educational events - while we welcome you to mention your company and their product/service if relevant, this should not be the main focus.
