What is DevSpace

DevSpace is an annual developer’s conference that takes place in Huntsville, Alabama. Fueled by extensive space and missile research and a vibrant, emerging start-up culture, Huntsville is a market poised and ready to burst onto the national stage.

Technological interests run the gamut of every language. As such, DevSpace aims to cater to this entire atmosphere. DevSpace wants to offer talks on a variety of languages, offering attendees the ability to improve their skills within their daily technology of choice and the ability to become familiar with new technologies. Combine this with talks on soft skills and processes, DevSpace will provide an outstanding value to the attendees.

DevSpace operates on a Friday and Saturday. We think this schedule will encourage employers to send their employees to the conference. The schedule is based on the idea of “Give a day, take a day.” Employers are more likely to give their staff a day from work, knowing the employee with give a day of their own, doubling their return on investment.

Looking Ahead

We're beginning to look ahead to DevSpace 2018. I wanted to update everyone on a few things.

Ticket Prices

First, let's get the bad news out of the way. With a heavy heart, we have decided to raise the prices of tickets for this year. The new pricing structure will be as follows:

Super Early Bird Tickets $100 Available until June 1st
Early Bird Tickets $125 Available until July 1st
Standard Tickets $150 Available until October 1st
Late Tickets $200 Available until October 13th

We hope the increase in ticket prices will help us not lose thousands of dollars this year. We should have the ticket sales open soon.

Call for Speakers

Our call for speakers will begin on May 15th. It will run through June 22nd at 11:59 PM CST. Of course, as always, 11:59 PM CST means until whenever I wake up on June 23rd to flip the switch.

Our goal is to select session and notify speakers no later than July 2nd. Then, we hope to release the list of session no later than July 8th.

Session Lengths

Speakers will be allowed to submit either 30 or 60 minute sessions. The number of each picked will be a function of the number of each type submitted. Ideally, we would like to have a track of 30 minutes sessions running both days. This would give us roughly 44 60-minute talks and 20 30-minute talks.
