DevCon is sadly not happening in February. 😔
The Minister of Health and Wellness, Dr. K. Jagutpal, announced that sanitary restrictions due to COVID-19 have been extended until the 31ˢᵗ March 2022. The restrictions impose a limit of 50 persons maximum for gatherings. This directly impacts the conference as we expect attendees to be in hundreds.
The Developers Conference (DevCon) was due to happen on the 17ᵗʰ, 18ᵗʰ and 19ᵗʰ of February 2022 at the Caudan Arts Centre. We were hoping that restrictions would be eased before the DevCon day. Unfortunately, that did not happen. No new dates have not been announced as that would be pending negotiation with the conference venue owner and several other stakeholders.
Last year, there was no DevCon 2021 and the year before DevCon 2020 also was postponed until a virtual DevCon was done the same year. Sponsors for DevCon 2020 had their sponsorship tiers carried forwarded until a physical conference could be organised again.
It saddens to see the event being postponed again but we should be better safe than sorry. The sanitary restrictions are imposed for a reason and we should all act responsibly for the safety of everyone
Let's hope for a better tomorrow and that DevCon may happen this year. 🤞
