2022’s Top Conferences for Programming & Software Development (2022)

Staying up to date with the latest developments is vital in any technology field, but especially when it comes to software development and programming. One of the fastest—also the most enjoyable—ways to do this is to attend a conference, but with thousands available, where do you start?

Like every year, we put together this directory of the top programming and software development conferences that are most beneficial to you, the programmers and developers. Although some conferences will still be held virtually this year, many have moved back to a hybrid model, with options for professionals to attend in-person or online.

This directory will be updated as more conferences announce details, so check back regularly. To add a programming or software development conference to this directory, contact us at blogs@bmc.com with details of the event, including the conference name, dates, location, and a link to the event’s website.

There are benefits of either serverless or serverful solutions.. There is a common rule in software development — don’t reinvent the wheel.. The way languages evolve is getting more and more independent of the systems we work on, and with.. Thanks to the growth of DevOps, the language selection becomes less and less important.. It takes over the complexity, since we can divide the system into smaller and simpler parts.. Application code gets more independent of the platform.. Think of it this way, how many development teams have you seen go through all the Scrum rituals but not actually working in an agile way?. We cannot simply “leave it for later.” Checking apps for security issues has to be integrated into the DevOps process, and into the development process itself from day one.. As the three main cloud providers enjoy virtually no competition, and differences in services they provide are (more or less) arbitrary.. Due to the growth of the importance of cloud providers and serverless approach, every piece of software can be done as a Service.. Thanks to the multiple extensions and customization tools, VS Code becomes the most popular IDE among developers.
