Dev Summit




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 on December 9-10, 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 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?

Even though the event will occur online, we want to ensure that any interactions with Googlers and others from the community follow 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

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.


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 Dec 9-10, 2020 starting from 9:30 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 everyone on our event website, we have a few programs such as Workshops and Office Hours that have limited capacity. Invite requests are now closed but we hope you’ll join us for the livestream on Dec 9-10, 2020.

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 with your colleague cc'd. Your colleague must complete the registration form before we can transfer your spot.

What to expect

An opportunity to hear directly from Chrome leadership, product and 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-to-intermediate level, on topics ranging from PWA to CSS. Invite requests for workshops are now closed. We hope you can still join us for the livestream on Dec 9-10, 2020.

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. Invite requests for office hours are now closed. We hope you can still join us for the livestream on Dec 9-10, 2020.

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 of what’s in store on this website and through our social channels so look for more updates as we finalize more fun activities for Chrome Dev Summit 2020!
