This first event will be a small conference so that MaidSafe can hear feedback from developers and begin to map out its long-term strategy for supporting this key stakeholder group. Attendees will be able to meet the MaidSafe team, who will explain why the SAFE Network has very low infrastructure costs and how it will enable highly scalable applications with built-in revenue streams. Developers interested in attending can apply by submitting their names directly to (including the individual’s safenetforum I.D. if they have one). Depending on the number of respondents MaidSafe will select names randomly to attend. The successful individuals must be able to fund their travel to Scotland, but MaidSafe will pay for accommodation for two nights.

“We are delighted to be launching our first developer event on home soil and look forward to this becoming an annual event,” said David Irvine, founder and CEO, MaidSafe. “The developers who attend will have the opportunity to meet key individuals involved in the development of the SAFE Network, understand the underlying technology in detail, discuss the APIs and the future roadmap. There will also be opportunities for best practice workshops with fellow developers and training sessions provided by the MaidSafe development team.”

The full agenda will be finalised in the next few weeks and updates will be provided on the SAFE Network Forum ( MaidSafe will also livestream the event for those unable to attend in person and will publish any technical materials produced to support the conference.
