Jean-René Roy started the DevTeach Conference back in 2003, and had a clear goal in mind. He wanted to host an event that was more than just a conference. The event was designed to have strong connections with the technical community, providing a platform for future speakers and a resource for user group leaders. DevTeach is a conference where attendees over time, are hoped to become speakers in future events.
