For those of you who have experienced Devcon in the past and are looking forward to this year’s event, it should be the best one to date! This year, we have dedicated convention center space that accommodates close to double the capacity as last year as well as a second hall to allow for more presentations and formats.
The Foundation is pleased to continue to provide the main developers conference in the Ethereum space for a community that stands out for its shared vision, drive, enthusiasm, and involvement in both community driven open source projects as well as rapidly growing ones taking shape in many other sectors including business, trade, industry, government, education and more.
It is our hope more Ethereum community members will be able to join in Devcon, especially aspiring developers and others who may contribute to the growing and valuable pipeline for innovation and implementation.
As a developers conference, Devcon3 programming is designed to help inform, educate, update and address interests of the Ethereum R&D community, including those who are in learning about the technology to become developers or wish to know more about Ethereum development and projects supported by the Foundation as well Ethereum innovation and development being undertaken in the greater ecosystem. While the program is technical by nature, all who wish to attend are welcome!
Be sure to review the Devcon3 terms and conditions.
Tickets for Devcon3 were sold out on the last day of advance purchase pricing ($900 USD), which was extended to July 10. Regular pricing is $1200 USD if any tickets become available. Please note we are working to provide free live streaming of the main stage presentations. Many thanks to the Ethereum community worldwide for the great response and interest in our developers conference!

Note: the Mexican national holiday "El Día de los Muertos" (Day of the Dead), is observed on November 1 & 2 this year. As there is increased domestic travel to holiday destinations in Mexico, it is suggested Devcon3 attendees arrange for travel and accommodations well in advance.
It should be a fun and interesting time to be in the Yucatan Peninsula. Information and photos about the Day of the Dead can be easily found online such as on www.nationalgeographic.org/media/dia-de-los-muertos.
