SnykWeek: Boston

We came, we secured, and we crowned a Best Hacker in Boston! On top of that, we also took over South Station, handed out gallons of free coffee, and heard from amazing Boston-based customers like DattoKyruus, and Manulife.

Taking a look back

SnykWeek was packed full of fun and learning, all centered around developer security. Thank you to all who joined us!

Developer Day

Local security-minded developers got hands-on with Snyk and learned how to build securely.

Party with Patch

We spent the evening connecting with the local Snyk community over cocktails and appetizers.

Cultivating Developer Security

Simon Maple (Field CTO, Snyk) led a rousing discussion on improving developer adoption of security practices.
