Devoxx UK 2020 is cancelled

For us, the 2nd week of May is usually filled by welcoming attendees, speakers and sponsors to London for Devoxx UK. Sadly this year, the week is all about the cancellation of this year’s event.

We originally postponed the conference to August in light of the global Coronavirus pandemic.

Our first consideration in the original postponement decision was ensuring the safety of everyone and maintaining the conference as a safe space for learning, development and enjoyment.

Over the last few months our world has changed so much. Being in the midst of such global and local uncertainty means we simply do not yet know when it will be safe to run an event of the Devoxx UK’s size and nature. So it’s with sadness that we announced today that Devoxx UK 2020 is cancelled

We are focusing our efforts now on trying to make Devoxx UK 2021 the best developer conference ever. 

The next Devoxx UK is scheduled for 12th – 14th May, 2021.

Please add the date to your calendars.
