🧑🏽‍💻 Developer Day Helps Developers Build the Future of Identity

What is #DeveloperDay? Developer Advocate Ben Dechrai explores the lineup and shares his thoughts from a delegate's perspective.

You’ve probably heard by now that Okta and Auth0 have joined forces. As a developer advocate for Auth0, I’m really excited to see how we can combine our forces to make identity even better for the developer community.

You might not be aware that I’m a huge fan of creating events that directly address the needs of developer communities. From the first conference I ran in 2004 to the user group meetings that are still going to this day, you can imagine my excitement when I heard we (Auth0 and Okta) were going to run an online event together!

This time, members of my team are taking the lead, so I'll be in the same boat as many of you experiencing Developer Day as it happens, so I thought it might be helpful to share my thoughts on the event and what I’m looking forward to the most.

Hit up the community forum if I miss something that’s important to you — there’s so much for everyone, I’m sure you’ll help others out too.

What Is Developer Day?

Developer Day creates a space for all developers to discover how the identity space is evolving, learn best practices in privacy and security, and gain insights from developer experiences. It brings speakers from across these sectors right to your desktop, and best of all — it’s free!

Speaking of free, did you know you can also sign up for a free Auth0 account at any time? Why not try it out today?

More specifically, it’s a one-day, single-track, virtual event, and while I’m proud to see some of my colleagues’ names in the speaker list, the lineup also features the likes of Cassidy Williams (Director of Developer Experience at Netlify), Alyssa Miller (Hacker, Researcher, and Security Advocate), and Kapehe (Developer Relations at, and yes, you might remember she used to work at Auth0 too).
