GDG DevFests are large, community-run events that can offer speaker sessions across multiple product areas, all-day hack-a-thons, code labs, and more.
We have two seasons for DevFest this year:
- 13th Sep - 29th Sep
- 18th Oct - 10th Nov
Excited? Find a DevFest near you and join the fun!
Each GDG DevFest will be inspired by and uniquely tailored to the needs of the developer community that hosts it. While no two events will be exactly alike, each GDG DevFest will, at its core, be powered by a shared belief that when developers come together to exchange ideas, amazing things can happen.
The invitation to host a GDG DevFest is being extended to active GDG chapters. In case someone wants to organize a GDG DevFest in a city with no GDG chapter, then the first step would be to start a GDG chapter in that city. In addition to the GDG chapters, we are inviting chapters who have decided to stay with the GTUG branding to also plan and organize GTUG DevFests.
GDG DevFests can be organized year round and are community run events. Therefore, these events take the form desired by the community with minimal guidelines. In order to ensure these events are bigger than regular GDG meetups though, there are a few recommendations:
- Duration of the event should be at least 4 hours
- More than 1 track if organizing a speaker session based event
- Hackathon (Single or Multi Product) - Ideally somewhere between 24-48 hours
