DeveloperWeek 2017 is the world’s largest developer expo and conference series with over 50 week-long events and dozens of city-wide partner events. The theme this year is, ‘The Industrial Revolution of Code’ – examining the ways in which code is revolutionizing the way we conduct business and ourselves.
