About Us

Our Purpose

Maritime DevCon is a nonprofit, volunteer run group supporting the software development community. Our vision is to support a strong, inclusive software development community in and around the Canadian east coast with high quality in-person events and an active online discussion community.

We strive to be an attractant for practicing and aspiring software professionals to gather, learn, and connect. We value all experience levels from students and self-taught novices to industry veterans. We value gender, race, and age diversity. We do not tolerate chauvinism, discrimination, or harassment of any kind. We partner with reputable organizations who share these principles. 

Our anchor point and our raison d’être is a high quality in-person conference. We value knowledgeable and articulate presenters; comfortable and clean venues; good quality and quantity of food; a thoughtful schedule; and an emphasis on a positive experience for each attendee. We provide novice speakers with resources and support to be successful. 

We welcome discussions and presentations from all areas of software development. We embrace content on any language or technology with broad appeal. We encourage both introductory and deep dive sessions. We avoid sessions that are advertisements or recruiting stunts.
