Around this time of year, students across the world are typically celebrating the closing of a chapter — whether that’s from grade school, college, grad school, or anything in between and beyond. It’s a time of pride, reflection, and camaraderie amongst fellow graduates as they take the next step of their journey.
Because the pandemic has led to mass-cancellations of in-person graduation ceremonies and showcases, we're teaming up with GitHub for a community-wide celebration! On Monday, June 15th, we’ll be featuring final projects from the Class of 2020 all over the DEV platform and throughout our social channels. Additionally, GitHub is organizing a Class of 2020 Year Book and hosting a livestream graduation ceremony at 9:00 AM PDT, where they’ll highlight some of your projects shared on DEV. All year book participants will also get swag delivered straight to their door!
To qualify for extra swag, we’re asking graduates to go the extra mile and share their final projects or thesis with the community.
- Use our graduation template to write your post.
- You’ll see some prompts that are meant to get your ideas going, so please feel free to write everything in your own style! Be sure to include the #devgrad2020 and #octograd2020 tags.
- PUBLISH YOUR POST! 😊
Once you’ve published your post, you’re ready to submit a PR to the Class of 2020 Year Book.

Swag has 🎉 shipped 🎉 !!
If you are located in the United States, you will likely receive something in the next week. International shipments will arrive in 2-3 weeks. If your country is not currently accepting international shipments, we will hold onto your swag until shipping restrictions have been lifted. Please be patient as shipping in many parts of the world is currently delayed. 🙌.
Feel free to flex your swag on Twitter and tag us!
