Provide a first class tech conference where passionate developers can network, hack, get inspired and learn throughout.


Devoxx is a conference by developers, for developers. It is offered at an affordable price so that every developer can enjoy the experience.


Devoxx UK is a community effort. The team is made up of senior developers, user group leaders and passionate experts.

Day 1: 9th May, 2018

Deep Dive Day

The Deep Dive Day is a chance to get heavily under the skin of a subject. There are 2 types of sessions running during the day, each running for 3 hours with a 30 minute break midway.


Deep Dive Sessions

These are intensive 3 hour sessions where an expert delves much more extensively into a subject than is possible during regular conference sessions. Deep Dives give attendees the chance to rapidly immerse themselves into a subject matter with an in-depth examination of a topic or technology. 


Hands-on Labs

Bring your own laptop and get coding in these practical hands-on sessions under the tutelage of an expert. These labs give you the chance to delve into a specific technology or methodology. You will need to bring your own laptop, and we will send you any required preparations and download instructions in advance so that you can be ready to go as soon as the session starts.

Labs are limited to 45 people, with advance registration a must. 


Days 2 & 3: 10th - 11th May, 2018
