Developers rush to snap up tickets for highly anticipated Polkadot Sub0

Web3 engineers and developers are looking forward to a trip to Lisbon for Sub0, the Polkadot developer conference, after the two-day event prompted a stampede for tickets. Taking place at LX Factory in Lisbon on Nov. 28 and 29, the oversubscribed event will encourage new builders to explore getting the most out of the popular proof-of-stake network.

More experienced developers, meanwhile, will discover some of the latest updates on Substrate, the software development kit behind Polkadot and the growing number of parachains building on the decentralized Layer-0 protocol.

While highly successful, the last two editions of Sub0 had to be held virtually, so the community is particularly excited to welcome in-person attendees to the Portuguese capital.

The agenda for Sub0 2022 is now live, and features more than 50 speakers from across the global Polkadot developer ecosystem. The talks begin with a keynote address from Björn Wagner, who took over as CEO last month when founder Gavin Wood elected to step back and focus on technology.

Two distinct tracks at Sub0 2022 will cater for an even wider audience. The starters’ track introduces the mechanics of the Polkadot ecosystem to those who are new and curious, whereas the builders’ track dives deeper into the tech and brings developers together to discuss topics while building and conceptualizing future projects.


Interactivity and hands-on participation is a huge part of the Sub0 program. A packed agenda of breakout sessions and developer workshops feature alongside panel discussions and fireside chats. Community-organized side events will also be running on both days.

Following the success of Polkadot Decoded in June, which was aimed at a wider audience that included Web3 enthusiasts and thought leaders, the community will again welcome the ever-growing parachain teams to hear more about their journey from the developer’s point of view.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet these influential builders within the Substrate community and discover how they too can become a part of the Polkadot ecosystem.

With many of the parachains and other Polkadot projects actively recruiting, Sub0 is the ideal place for developers looking to launch or expand their Web3 careers.

Core Polkadot developers and team members will be present to host sessions, answer questions and talk about Polkadot’s roadmap.
