When you join a Google Developer Group, you'll have the opportunity to meet local developers with similar interests in technology. A GDG meetup event includes talks on a wide range of technical topics where you can learn new skills through hands-on workshops. The community prides itself on being an inclusive environment where everyone and anyone interested in tech - from beginner developers to experienced professionals - all are welcome to join.
In 2019, powerful conversations on how to solve climate change took place all over the world. In that spirit, the DevFest community recently joined the discussion by looking at how tech can change how we approach the environment. For our new readers, DevFests are community-led developer events, hosted by Google Developer Groups, that take place all around the world and are focused on building community around Google's technologies.
After Aaron Ma, an 11-year-old DevFest speaker, recently gave his tips on coding, people kept asking us, "so what are the other kids of DevFest working on?" In response, we want to show you how these incredible kids, or DevKids as we call them, are spreading their ideas at DevFest events around the world.
As over 400 community-led DevFest events continue to take place around the world, something is becoming clear: kids are taking over. We're not kidding. Many young students are taking the stage this season to speak on topics ranging from machine learning to robotics, and people are loving it.
