Discover Pebblebed

Located in the heart of the Mission, Pebblebed is a former production studio. Today, it serves as a community space for artists, tinkerers, and builders. Its interior is one-of-a-kind in San Francisco and was the perfect location for CDE Universe. Alongside the main room with the conference stage, there were several breakout areas to mingle and have discussions.

Fun, food & drinks

CDE Universe is about meeting the DevX community and forging lasting connections. Next to the talks, we had time for connection and fun (did someone say there will be skateboards?). We offered dinner (Thursday), lunch (Friday) and snacks and refreshments throughout the conference. We closed out the first day with craft beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks.



CDE Universe is supported by ecosystem partners.
