Why Attend GitHub Universe?
GitHub Universe is a three-day conference, complete with in-depth training and a benefit concert like you've never experienced.
You’ll be surrounded by thoughtful software experts who will learn from your experiences while you’re inspired by theirs. You’ll leave Universe with fresh ideas on how to build the software and teams that’ll solve tomorrow’s challenges. For more ideas of what to expect from Universe, check out videos from Universe 2015.

What you’ll do
Advance your skills
More than half of the sessions at Universe are dedicated to education and training on GitHub and its integration ecosystem. The keynotes and sessions at Universe go beyond product announcements to make sure you leave with actionable ways to build better software.
Build your community
Universe is designed to make sure you have plenty of opportunities to connect with developers who share your passions. From student meet-ups to open source social hours to roundtable discussions on GitHub for work, opportunities to build your community are central to the conference.
Get new ideas
Immerse yourself in two full days of presentations and discussions on the trends that are transforming how people build software. From open source to text editors to security, you’ll hear examples and advice from the developers and technologists who are leading the way.
Meet ecosystem partners
Partners and sponsors don’t attend Universe to make a sales pitch. They come to meet developers, hear your challenges, and help you discover new integrations and workflows to improve the way you build software. This year’s event will include more than 15 sponsors and partners, and comfortable, pressure-free ways to connect.
Universe is every bit as much about the developer community as it is about GitHub. Whether you have an interesting topic to discuss, want to throw your support behind the event, or just want to schedule some time to meet with sales or our training team, we want you to make this event your own.
At Universe you’ll hear from organizations that demonstrate the impact software can have on our world and come away with specific, practical ways to get involved in a social impact initiative. Plus, a portion of your registration is used to fund The Big Bang, the GitHub Universe after party and concert supporting Black Girls Code.
