It is Thursday, October 25, 2018 from 9am to 8pm PT. Check your invitation for detailed location information if you are joining us in person.
How do I experience this awesomeness if I don’t have a ticket?
A lot of Developer Day will be live streamed at www.twitch.tv/twitchdev.

Live Stream Schedule
What’s going on during the day?
Keynote: Join Emmett Shear, Twitch CEO, and Amir Shevat, VP of Developer Experience, to hear our vision, how Twitch builds for developers and shared success, a look back at our product launches, and what’s coming up.
Streamer Panel: A candid discussion — where streamers discuss a range of Extension-related topics to help developers grow and optimize current Extensions or be inspired to create new ones — is immediately following the Keynote and will be moderated by Ethan Evans, EVP of Commerce and Developers at Twitch.
Sessions: Developer Day features 12 sessions on two tracks. The Grow track showcases new product launches, product benefits, and industry Q&A sessions. The Build track is more technical and features deep dives into products and features.
Showcases: Six showcase pods offer you the opportunity to get to know more about our products and offerings. Come see how you can use Drops, Extensions, Mods, the Twitch API, Insights, and Amazon Game Tech to amp up your games.
Roadmap Feedback Board: Give us feedback on our roadmap. Get creative with stickers, post-its, and more as you engage with Twitch Developers staff on features you’d like to see in the future.
Is anybody else excited?
You bet. Here’s proof!
“This will be my first Developer Day at TwitchCon. I’m super excited to meet the Twitch team and developers in person and learn from them about their Twitch development experiences, especially everything about Twitch Extensions. Also, I can’t wait to see all new products and improvements Twitch will announce for their developers.”
— James van Eden (Altoar), Developer of Sound Alerts
Join Altoar and Jeff Chow, Product Manager of Monetization @ Twitch for their session: Monetize your Extension One Bit at a Time
“The second Developer Day is coming! Last year I attended, met, and spoke with my fellow developers. This year, I get to speak and share my knowledge and experience with them. If last year is anything to go by, it’s going to be an exciting day exchanging thoughts and ideas, and hopefully planing some collaborations with my fellow third-party Twitch developers. Furthermore, I’m looking forward to seeing what Twitch has coming for us in the coming year, and how I can improve the viewer experience for the broadcasters I work with! And, I hope my live coding does not go wrong!”
