GitKon 2022: Tech Conference Turned TikTok
GitKraken, the world's leader in premier Git tools, announces unique virtual developer conference
Last year's inaugural GitKon attracted over 4,000 global registrants, featuring 25 sessions on a variety of Git topics presented by experts from GitHub, GitLab, CircleCI, and more.
GitKon 2022 is all about Creating a Collaborative Future, as the theme states, and the GitKraken team says they plan to iterate on the content and format to serve the ever-changing needs, preferences, and interests of its audience.
"GitKon will be a TikTok style format that keeps speakers focused and developers engaged. Time is a developer's most precious resource. We want to educate and energize, not leave our audience feeling burnt out," says Dwayne McDaniel, GitKraken Developer Evangelist.
As the pandemic wanes, many events are transitioning back to a paid, in-person format. GitKraken is disrupting the status-quo and staying committed to making GitKon content accessible to a global audience in an easily consumable format, free of charge. Each day will be 3 hours long with 12 sessions lasting 15 minutes each. All sessions will be available on-demand afterward.
"Bellwether Microsoft also piloted a TikTok style format for VS Code Day 2022, and we believe this format will continue to gain traction after GitKon," says Sara Stamas, VP of Marketing at GitKraken, "with over 1 billion users in 2021, with similar demographics to our audience, we're taking a note out of TikTok's playbook."
