The TwitchCon Developer Day 2018 VODs Are Here!

Thanks to everyone who made our second annual TwitchCon Developer Day a success! Over 600 Twitch developers attended, which is 166 percent of last year. We even had over 24,000 concurrent viewers from the Twitch community at the height of our broadcast.

If you missed any of the action or want to relive any part of the day, the VODs and slides from the sessions are now available.


In the keynote, we looked back on the year with community achievements, product launches, and the lowdown on multiplayer entertainment — as well as gave you a sneak peek of the product roadmap and some big announcements around building, engaging, and monetizing on Twitch. We welcomed streamers to the stage for the second half of the keynote to share their thoughts on using Extensions and what they’d like to see in the future.
