Greetings, Ethereum builders and enthusiasts!
Devconnect Istanbul is just around the corner, with only two months to go! We’re here to remind you why we’re so excited about this event and to share some important updates and information.
Attend Devconnect to shape the future of Ethereum 🌍
Devconnect is a gathering for those eager to advance Ethereum. By participating you can:
Make progress happen: The events listed on the Devconnect schedule are deep dives into key Ethereum topics, designed to catalyze solutions. Join your fellow builders to discuss challenges and opportunities within the specific domains. Add your voice to shape the outcomes.
Spark collaborations: The Devconnect Cowork fosters community and enables productivity. Meeting rooms, tables, wifi, and comfy areas will provide opportunities for group discussions and networking. Take this chance to make connections, exchange ideas, and start collaborations.
Unlock the future of Ethereum: One part of our mission with Devconnect is to foster real-time idea exchanges and problem-solving. Attend Devconnect to be at the center of crucial conversations and help define the future of Ethereum.
Devconnect is by and for the Ethereum community. The events are hosted by many of the most passionate and knowledgeable teams, who know what we need to discuss for Ethereum to achieve the positive impact we all hope for. Ethereum is neither a company nor a single group, but an open source protocol, and if you are eager to contribute to Ethereum’s development, Devconnect is for you.

📅 Events with open ticket sales and applications
Each event during Devconnect week will be independently hosted and curated by the organizing teams. Ticketing will be handled by them (not the Devconnect team), so you’ll need to secure tickets for each event you want to attend. Keep in mind that Devconnect aims to be productive, which means smaller audiences and ticket applications for some events to target relevant audiences.
Below, you find a table with events that opened up ticket sales or applications. We’ll keep our schedule updated over at Devconnect.org, as further additions to the Devconnect schedule come together.
