Byteconf is creating a developer community for everyone

Hey – Kristian from Byteconf here. I'm building a global community of developers around free tech conferences and events, available on Twitch and other streaming platforms!

As I've been planning Byteconf React since the beginning of this year, it's been amazing to see how many people around the world are interested in the idea of developer conferences that anyone and everyone can attend. Byteconf React was a great start, but there's a lot more work to be done. 

Most importantly, we want to continue to keep any new conferences and events free, and available for anyone to access.

The Byteconf Patreon helps us do a lot of stuff that we're really excited about. With your support, we're going to continue to put on new events, educate more developers, and build something awesome. Here's what your support will enable us to tackle next:

- Launch new events. Byteconf React is only the first conference in a planned series of events. We want to do things like Byteconf JavaScript, Byteconf Vue, and even one-off events like interviews, live pair programming sessions, and more. We also want to take input from our community in what events we should put on, whether it's in a new technology or with a particular set of speakers. The sky is the limit! 

- Build a platform. Long-term, we want to build a home for developers of all experience levels online. Whether you're a senior dev, a junior dev, or a first-day dev, we want to build a place where you can feel safe to ask any and all questions, and to learn from the best and brightest in the industry. This includes our shiny new Discord server (be sure to join!), but also a planned web app in the future where you can learn from other developers about what tools and techniques make for an incredible developer experience.

- Create great educational content with our speakers and our community. Between our growing Medium publication, our YouTube channel, and Twitch stream, we want to build a place where developers can constantly learn about new open-source tools, how to get started in the field, and how to build a sustainable career.

The support is appreciated, but we also want our patrons to get something out of it too. Signing up as a patron will give you all kinds of perks, like exclusive content, a view into the behind the scenes work for Byteconf, and shoutouts at future conferences and events. Be sure to check out the tiers for more details!



We have people in the community from places all around the world – but we want Byteconf to include people from every country. As we grow, your support will help us achieve that mission!

It's still early days for Byteconf, and for this Patreon. My hope is that this page and the patron model help supporters of the project feel connected to the future of Byteconf, and to their new future dev home online. Thank you!

Thank you to our sponsors for October, SanityHasura and DevLifts!
