About Beer City Code

Beer City Code is an annual conference for software developers held in Grand Rapids, MI, also known as Beer City, USA. Software creators of all types are welcome, even those who don't care for beer.

The main conference is held Saturday, June 23, with optional day-long workshops the day before, Friday, June 22. You can attend the conference for just $40, or do the conference plus an all-day workshop on Friday for just $200. There's even a ticket that includes a VIP micro-brewery tour with our speakers and organizers. How cool is that?!

The Beer City Code conference grew our of the success of its predecessor, Grand Rapids DevDay, but was renamed in 2017 to embrace its much more broad appeal outside the Grand Rapids area.

Friday Workshops

With several day-long workshops to choose from focusing on many different exciting and cutting-edge technolgies, our workshop attendees will be able to get hands-on in a smaller classroom setting with our excellent instructors.

Buy a ticket for both a workshop and the conference day to get the most bang for your buck, and don't forget to upgrade to the VIP package and you can top off your weekend with a brewery tour of Beer City with our speakers and VIPs.

Saturday Conference

Saturday is the main event. Don't miss a moment of this exciting day packed full of top-tier speakers presenting on some very interesting, useful, and cutting-edge technologies and topics.

You won't go hungry, eiter! We'll feed you coffee, snacks, and a filling lunch to keep your brain fueled for all the learning it's going to do.

Be smart and combine your conference ticket with a Friday workshop ticket. You'll save money and learn one topic of your choice in much more detail in a hands-on classroom setting. The VIP package will also get you on a brewery tour with our speakers, and VIPs, so why not go all in and register for that?
