About

What is Chrome Dev Summit 2021?Show

Chrome Dev Summit is an annual conference where developers can learn about the latest tools and updates coming to the Google Chrome browser. You’ll hear from Chrome product and engineering teams, industry leaders, and developers about building the future of the web. We’ll share platform updates, architectural guidance, developer tooling, case studies, and opportunities for increased reach and engagement.

When and where is Chrome Dev Summit 2021?Show

This year, Chrome Dev Summit is an online-only event. We’ll kick things off with an exciting keynote to share the latest news and updates on the Chrome browser, and over the next few weeks, you’ll have the opportunity to attend office hours, learning lounges, and workshops with product managers, developers, and engineers.

The workshops, office hours, and learning lounges will be held in three time zones so you can join whenever works best for you: US Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), and Indian Standard Time (IST).

Are there any in-person aspects to the event?Show

Given the current times, we’ve decided to have a virtual-only conference. No doubt that the event will feel different this year, but we’re excited by the idea of making the event accessible to everyone, globally, barring timezone barriers.

Is there a code of conduct for the event?Show

Even though the event is online, we want to make sure any interactions with Googlers and others from the community follow our code of conduct. We encourage everyone to review our Community Guidelines to ensure Chrome Dev Summit 2021 is a harassment-free and inclusive event experience for everyone.

We take our Community Guidelines seriously at Chrome Dev Summit, and the audience, speakers, and everyone involved with the event are required to agree to these guidelines. If you have any questions, contact chrome-dev-summit-community@google.com.

Registration

Do I need to register to view the sessions?Show

Our keynote and live AMA will be available to everyone — no registration required — so make sure you tune in during the livestream to ask your burning questions and interact directly with the Chrome Leadership Team. The keynote and AMA will run live on November 3, 2021, starting at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time. We expect a run time of two hours.

However, space is limited for our workshops, learning lounges, and one-on-one office hours, so don’t wait to request your invite and register.

If the event is online and available to everyone, why do I need to request an invite or register?Show

Although the keynote and live Q&A will be accessible to everyone on the event website, our workshops, learning lounges, and office hours — which give you direct access to developers and industry experts — have limited capacity.

If I can no longer attend a workshop or office hours, can I transfer my spot to someone else?Show

If you'd like to transfer your spot to a colleague, send a request to chrome-dev-summit@google.com and CC your colleague on the email. Your colleague will need to complete the registration form before we can transfer your spot.
