The Developers Conference 2020 was scheduled to run from 2 - 4 April 2020 but alas, a pandemic caused (and is still causing) chaos around the world. Mauritius was not spared and being on "sanitary curfew" from mid-March till June there was no hope for running the conference in its usual format for obvious concerns about the safety of attendees, speakers and all other stakeholders.
Therefore, the DevCon Organizing Committee met online several times in the past months to discuss about what could be done, whether we run the conference post-lockdown or whether a virtual conference could be something worth a shot. After a lot of discussion about the technicalities and considering the suggestions & thoughts of our backers and sponsors, the decision was made to have a Virtual Developers Conference this year itself. 🤓

Our regular attendees know the drill. You got to start making noise on Facebook, Twitter or any other social media platform. 📢
