Different communities and companies host tech events every year to help developers become better in their respective fields. Due to this, finding the right event to attend can be a bit tasky.

To help you find the right event to attend in April, I compiled the top 10 developer-focused conferences/events happening in April 2021 for you. 👇🏽

1. React Summit

React Summit

React Summit is the biggest React conference online! Each day will feature talks from different amazing speakers across the world. Besides the talks and hands-on React workshops, you can expect excellent MCs, virtual networking rooms focusing on tech topics, interactive entertainment, engaging challenges for all participants, and more! You don't want to miss this conference if you are a React developer.

3. Vue Conference

Vue Conference

This year's VueJS Conference will be happening virtually because of the pandemic. But that doesn't mean it won't still be amazing!

4. DevTernity


DevTernity is one of the top 3 international software development conferences in Europe.

Unlike other conferences, DevTernity focuses on the core skills paramount to your success – coding, architecture, and leadership.

Attending this conference will give you an uncompetitive advantage as you start your journey towards becoming a Software Architect, Engineering Lead, or CTO. The tickets are very limited so grab one now!

5. Developer Week Europe - Online DevOps, Cloud, and API conference

Europe Online

This virtual event is set to be one of the biggest in Europe. It will cover talks ranging from DevOps, cloud, APIs, and more. The lineup of speakers is fantastic. PS: You don't have to be in Europe to attend this event because it is virtual. So, register, attend and thank me later. 😉

6. Strapi Conf


Strapi is the next-gen headless Open Source CMS enabling content-rich experiences to be created, managed, and exposed to any digital device. The team is hosting its first-ever conference this year in April. Do check it out if you are a Strapi.js developer or enthusiast.

8. Serverless Architecture Conference

Serverless Architecture Conference

This conference will help you master Cloud-Native architectures, the Kubernetes Ecosystem, and Functions. The speakers, topics, and organizers are top-notch. The Serverless ecosystem keeps growing tremendously, and I think this is a great event for anyone interested in all things Serverless.

9. AzureLive


AzureLive is a brand new, single-day event that will feature some of the best speakers and content the Azure community has to offer. The speakers will speak on Architecture, DevOps, Governance, Security, Serverless, AKS, AI, and many more will be discussed on that day.
