"It is the largest online technology event. Not for those who consume but for people who create and build the internet. For people who not only use technology but imagine, create and develop it and bring it to hundreds of thousands of users" he said Freddy Vega, CEO of Platzi.

As every year, PlatziConf will also be the space for the final of Platzi DemoDay 2021, which chooses the most promising startup in the region and will receive 50 thousand dollars of investment from Codestream and Platzi.
