Mark your calendars, Replay 2024 is now 100 days away! Replay, our premier conference focused on the latest platforms, practices, and trends in software engineering, is coming to Seattle from September 18-20, 2024. This year, we’re excited to bring together hundreds of innovative backend engineers to explore the future of software engineering and maximize the benefits of using Temporal.

Here are ten reasons why you can’t afford to miss Replay 2024:

10 - Meet some of the best thinkers and builders in backend software engineering

Join Temporal’s newly-minted CEO Samar Abbas and industry leaders from Netflix, Yum! Brands, SpiralScout, Instacart, and more, to learn how they’re innovating in their organizations and driving the future of software engineering. Come away with concrete ideas and strategies to improve the reliability and velocity of your software development.

9 - Help drive the future of the Temporal Project

We’ll share a keynote full of product announcements and have also added a product forum to the agenda where you can interact with our product team, learn more about new capabilities, and give us feedback and input on where the project should go in the future.

Bring your API questions, learn about the future of the SDKs, and chat about all things in your language with the people who help build Temporal.

8 - Day zero workshops

Kickstart your learning with live, hands-on-keyboard workshops designed to help you get up and running with Temporal in Go, Java, Typescript, and Python in our Developer Fundamentals courses. No prior Temporal experience? No problem. These sessions are designed to get you up to speed quickly.

Have you already mastered the fundamentals? Our intermediate/advanced level Beyond the Basics courses in Go, Java, and Typescript are a great way to level-up your understanding of more advanced concepts and design patterns. The content of this track is based on our Interacting with Workflows and Crafting an Error Handling Strategy courses.

7 - Connect with our sponsors!

This year’s Replay conference has FIVE sponsors. Bitovi, TechFabric, Apartment304, Google Cloud, and SpiralScout. Stop by our sponsor booths and connect with them and see how they can help you on your journey to Temporal Cloud! Is your company interested in sponsoring Replay? Email replay@temporal.io for more information.

6 - Can’t afford to attend? We got you!

In order to make Replay 2024 accessible to more people from all walks of life, we’re offering free or heavily-discounted tickets to people from underrepresented groups in the technology sector and/or communities who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend Replay. These groups include but are not limited to: women, LGBTQ folks, people of color, people affected by poverty, people affected by war, individuals with physical disabilities, and others.

Inclusivity Tickets are available now by filling out the form here. They are awarded based on a combination of need and impact. Awarded recipients will receive a complimentary ticket and/or travel and lodging to the event in September based on need.

5 - Community connection

This year’s event provides networking opportunities for both extroverts and introverts alike, offering attendees the chance to “Choose your own adventure” when it comes to interacting with like-minded developers. Meet with peers who are using Temporal at other forward-thinking organizations to swap tips and tricks, share ideas, and get inspired! This is also an excellent opportunity to help others by collaborating with your peers, solving problems, and getting inspiration.

4 - Oh the themed decor and swag!

This year’s theme, “Adventurers Wanted,” promises creative and exciting venue and stage decorations, along with unique swag. Keep an eye out for an email announcing our swag drop!

3 - Have a question? Ask an Expert!

New this year, our “The Guide Post” offers a chance to ask our experts any burning questions, participate in live demos, or just chat with Temporal team members that work to make our product amazing everyday. No question is too big or too small—our team is here to help.

2 - Share your own Temporal story

For the first time, we’re inviting community members to present 15-minute lightning talks on the Replay stage. If you missed our CFP or have a last-minute idea, this is your opportunity. Contact us at replay@temporal.io for more details.

1 - The official Replay party!

The official Replay party is on September 19th at The Forum Social House in Bellevue. Join Replay attendees and Temporal staff for a fun-filled evening with food and beverages, pool, ping pong, mini golf and a Top Golf Swing Suite!
