Garmin Developer Virtual Conference 2020
October 14th, 2020


Calling All Developers

Join us as we pioneer new territories in the digital landscape — and go “beyond.”

GDVC2020 is our first-ever virtual event entirely focused on you - our Garmin developer community. Learn about the latest updates and features for Connect IQ, the Garmin Connect Developer Program and ANT; become inspired to push boundaries; make cool things with the Garmin ecosystem; and most of all, stay safe by watching everything from the comfort of your home.

Live-streamed, this conference will be your Garmin source of major developer announcements and information for the year ahead. Listen to presentations, participate in virtual breakouts and engage with our Garmin team in Q&A.

Here’s what to expect

Five-hours of content designed for every level of developer from newbie to expert, we’ve got you covered.

Beyond a ‘State of the Union’

One-day only, tune in live as our Garmin team takes you beyond the depths of Connect IQ, ANT and the Garmin Connect Developer Programs. Explore how the latest updates and features can shape the future of our programs, products and users.
