Developers Unite!

@ BronyCon logo in beautiful Museo SlabBronyCon

Developers are the folks who program and design your favorite games, apps, websites, and more. Working together, it's no secret the MLP fandom has spawned some amazing collaborative projects. At BronyCon 2016, the #ponydev community has put together a series of talks for anyone to enjoy - whether you're just curious about what it takes to build a game or a hardcore hacker.


Our Pony Developers & Coders Panel is on Sunday at 2:30pm. After the panel, you'll find links to slides, resources, and a video recording below.

Jump to Developer Panel: See the List of Talks & Video!

Here is where you can find the #ponydev team and friends during BronyCon 2016 (admission is required to attend panels):
