The organizers of a two-day developer conference titled Devs For Ukraine, starting Monday April 25, want to raise $100,000 to support NGOs and charities operating in the war-torn country.
Devs For Ukraine is the brainchild of developers at Remote, an international HR startup that offers global payroll, compliance and benefits management services for companies with far-flung employees. The event currently has 19 different sessions booked, nine scheduled for Monday and the remainder on the following day.
Speakers include developers from Google, Meta, Stripe and Shopify, as well as several from Remote itself. Dan Abramov, of Meta's React team, will give a Q&A on Monday, and Jessica Janiuk, of Google's Angular Team, will discuss RESTful APIs on the same day. Tuesday will see Shopify senior staff engineer Aaron Patterson speak, as well as events headed by Remote employees like Tobi Pfeiffer and Vittoria Bitton.
