About

Over the two days, Chrome product and engineering teams as well as the wider community come together to envision and build the future of the web. The audience will hear about platform updates, architectural guidance, developer tooling, case studies, and opportunities for increased reach and engagement on the web.


When and Where is Chrome Dev Summit?

Chrome Dev Summit 2020 will be held 9-10 December, 2020 and will be online-only. The summit will be hosted on this website.


Are there any in-person aspects to the event?

Given the current times, we’ve decided to have a virtual-only conference. No doubt that the event would feel fairly 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?

Even though the event will occur online, we want to ensure that any interactions with Googlers and others from the community follows our code of conduct. We encourage everyone to review our Community Guidelines to ensure that Chrome Dev Summit 2020 is a harassment-free and inclusive event experience for everyone. At Chrome Dev Summit, we take our Community Guidelines seriously, and the audience, speakers, and all involved with the event are required to agree to these guidelines. If you have any questions, please contact chrome-dev-summit-community@google.com.


How can I stay informed?

For the latest information about sessions, speakers, and activities, please keep an eye on this site, follow us on Twitter, or sign up for event and other web updates.

You can also follow and join the social conversation about the event using the official #ChromeDevSummit hashtag. In addition, we'll be emailing important information to all accepted applicants for Workshops and Office Hours as mentioned before.

Registration

Do I need to register to view the sessions?

Registration is not required to watch the sessions. All sessions and content will be publicly available. The sessions will run live on 9-10 Dec, 2020 starting from 10 am Pacific Time (expected run time c. 3 hours). After the event we'll post the sessions to the Chrome Developers YouTube Channel; however, we encourage developers to join us during the livestream to get a chance to interact with Googlers live and ask their burning questions.


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

While all sessions, live Q&A and other learning experiences such as Codelabs, etc (more details to follow) will be accessible to all on our event website, we have a few programs such as Workshops & Office Hours that have limited capacity. To ensure we’re able to allocate the available slots to those who are interested we’re encouraging the community to request their invite beforehand. If you’re selected, we’ll get in touch for next steps.


If I’m selected for Workshops or Office Hours, can I transfer my spot to someone else?

If you'd like to transfer your Workshops or Office Hours spot to a colleague, please send a request to chrome-dev-summit@google.com with your colleague cc'd. Your colleague will be required to complete the registration form before we can transfer your spot.

What to expect

An opportunity to hear directly from Chrome leadership, product & engineering teams about the latest innovations and updates through technical sessions, office hours, workshops and more.

Sessions: Over the two days, we’ll bring a single track of byte sized sessions across multiple topics while being available online to answer your questions through YouTube live chat. Day 1 sessions will focus on building strong foundations for the modern web while Day 2 sessions will show how you can focus on building incredible experiences on top of the solid foundations.

Live Chat Q&A: While we can’t replicate the experience of bumping into your favourite Google experts to ask them your burning questions or to just have a chat, we’ll ensure that they are on stand by via live chat on YouTube until the sessions last.

Workshops: Conducted by experts from the community (non-Googlers), these workshops will bring exclusive content to a limited number of developers. The limit is purely due to technical constraints in order to make the workshops interactive. Workshops will be focused on beginner-intermediate level, on topics ranging from PWA to CSS. Look out for updates on our event site and request an invite if you’re interested!

Office Hours: We’ll also have representatives from various teams joining us to meet with you in a 1:1 setting and discuss challenges and opportunities for your web experience. Due to limited capacity, we encourage everyone to request their invite for this opportunity well in advance.

And more: In these ever changing times, we’re working hard to bring as much flavour of past events as possible. We’ll be sharing more on what’s in store on this website and through our social channels so look out for more updates as we finalize more fun activities for Chrome Dev Summit 2020!


Where can I find agenda details?

All details will be published on this website as we figure things out. By requesting an invite, we can also ensure that you’re kept up to date with all event updates or you can choose to simply follow us on Twitter or on YouTube for event updates.

  • Simplified Chinese
  • Japanese
  • Bahasa
  • French
