Being here gives me a lot of energy - and I’m sure a lot of other people too, to keep going. And I hope I can be here again in maybe 10, 20, 30 years!
I love coming to Develop:Brighton – it’s a great chance to network, tell people what you’re up to, have meetings, do business deals.. also finding some great talks and great information from some of the best speakers around. It’s a regular thing I come to every year and I can’t imagine not coming.
It’s not just about the great talks, but it’s about bringing together the whole community, it’s the networking – it’s just amazing, we love it!

The quality of the attendees is very high – lots of interesting folks asking some great questions and there are some sweet names who are presenting.

It’s key to have UK events like this that allow the coming together of developers, sharing of knowledge, networking, deals to be struck and fun to be had!
Operations Lead, Make Real
I think really it’s important for developers to get together at events like Develop, share war stories and learn from one another.
I know a lot of people who’ve come to Develop for the networking opportunities, to speak to each other and to give support to each other… just hearing other people’s ideas can help spark inspiration.

Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focused conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
We'd love to hear any suggestions you have for this year's Develop:Brighton - who you'd like to hear talk, ideas for sessions, anything at all you'd like to tell us that will make the event better for you!
