Learn the latest in edtech at DevCon

DevCon is for anyone who values the Tech in EdTech—developers and non-developers alike. Come share best practices, network with peers and subject matter experts, and push the boundaries of EdTech with us. Join the brightest minds from Blackboard and our clients—including developers, system administrators, and tech-savvy campus leaders.

What’s in it for me?

Get nerdy

Talk nerdy at DevCon with detailed technical conversations for system administrators, IT professionals and developers. Want to talk about integrations? We’ve got you covered. Want to learn about how Blackboard architecture is morphing to meet the demands of today’s high-demand technological age? This conference is for you.

Technical training

We heard the applause when we asked, “Should we make DevCon even more technical?” So get ready for it. DevCon has been reinvented to meet the needs and demands of our clients. Whether it’s hands-on administration or hardcore development, there will be sessions for you. If you are a beginner, we will help get you up to speed.

Tailored sessions

We will again be working with a group of DevCon attendees to select submissions from our Call For Presentations. We are also working closely with our Chief Product Officer and Product Architects to define a set of Blackboard-led sessions that will give you unprecedented access to the technical direction of our portfolio.

Not just for Learn anymore

Whether your institution uses Blackboard Learn, Collaborate, Analytics, or any other Blackboard product, DevCon has something for you. In the past, we focused on our flagship product, but as our portfolio grows, so does our desire to connect all of our clients!


We promise another round of can’t-miss sessions. We know that you also value the ability to sit down with peers and experts to make connections, especially at the DevCon Social event!
