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, July 25, with optional day-long workshops the day before, Friday, July 24.
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.
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 party at a local establishment with our speakers and VIPs.
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 into a party with our speakers, and VIPs, so why not go all in and register for that?

Don't miss out on the fun. Sign up right away to hold your spot for all the fun, learning, networking, and beer.
Tech conferences can be busy and overwhelming places to meet people, expecially if you feel like you don't fit in.
"By the Grace of Hops" is a diversity and inclusion mixer for Beer City Code attendees occuring the evening before the conference--and inspired by the indomitable Grace Hopper. We hope it provides people in under-represented groups in the tech industry a chance to get to know each other before the conference.
We'll provide the hors d'oeuvres and drinks; you provide the friendly face. We hope it provides everyone an opportunity to meet a few other friendly faces that they can look for at the conference the following day.
