Forge DevCon is a two-day conference with 40+ classes that cover a wide variety of topics.

Right now we are in the middle of Call for Proposals and are accepting applications with class ideas until June 11.

This year we are focusing on architecture, engineering, construction, design, and manufacturing. New this year, we're focusing on more general web programming, getting started with Forge, and case studies covering an integration or application.

To get you inspired to submit your class idea, we wanted to share 12 popular classes from 2017 that will hopefully get you motivated to submit that idea you've been thinking of.  And if you have any questions at any time reach out to the Forge DevCon Speaker Management team.
