Why attend (dev)day?

(dev)day is a must-attend event for developers in the automotive space. In two action-packed days, you'll develop on the Fortellis platform, publish automotive APIs and solutions, and collaborate with other innovators in the community. Our lead developers will answer your questions, share innovations and provide an inside look into the platform’s roadmap.

Much like the famous Le Mans race in France, we’ll have 24 hours to complete the task at hand – INNOVATE!

Hear firsthand the exciting announcements being made at NADA and meet some of our newest “team members.”

Snacks, drinks, lunch and Wi-Fi are provided. Just bring your laptops, questions and bright ideas. Submit your automotive problem sets and ideas during registration or at the event.


(dev)day will take place at the recently renovated Park MGM in Las Vegas, just days before the automotive world converges for NADA.

If you’re a developer and you are building a DMS integration with traditional APIs, Fortellis is 100 times faster and 100 times easier to learn. It’s a dream come true for a developer.

Stephen M. | Developer

For a software developer, it’s been very difficult to scale in this industry. There have been so many technical roadblocks. We started from scratch and got published on Fortellis within 24 hours. It’s just incredible.

John Bullman | CTO, Spiffit
