Fortunately, One of the beautiful Atlantic Provinces in Canada, New Brunswick has lots of great genius folks and Geeks in Information Technology, Cloud, IoT, SAAS, Machine Learning, Software Testing, Web/mobile Development ... etc! But unfortunately, we don't know each other well, we don't meet regularly and we don't have a chance to communicate and share our knowledge and experience through study Jams, Hackathons or Technical meetups and big tech events!

We always hear about big technical events happening here and there far away from NB, in bigger cities or more crowded provinces, some of us just decide to move there to be with the community he/she loves, others just take a trip to attend these events, others try to find live streams for it to be up to date, and others just give up and stay with no community and be outdated!

SO, THIS IS THE FIRECRACKER !!!!!!!!

This group is for anyone who is looking for this chance to spread his/her knowledge with others and extend his/her network, for those having an interest in mobile, web, cloud, and AI, for those having a passion to learn about the latest technologies, and for sure for those living in the lovely New Brunswick, Canada.

GDG Cloud Fredericton chapter is a local group of developers who are specifically interested in Google products and APIs (https://developers.google.com/products/). We will host a variety of technical activities for developers - from just a few people getting together to watch Googles' latest videos (https://www.youtube.com/user/GoogleDevelopers), to large gatherings with demos and tech talks, to hackathons.

We are recognized by Google Developers (https://developers.google.com) as an official GDG chapter in Fredericton and we are considered the first chapter in New Brunswick, will be so excited to have more chapters in St.John and Moncton !!

Google supports us but it doesn’t own or manage us! So, the success of this chapter and of the other New Brunswick chapters will depend on you New Brunswickers Folks!

Let's put New Brunswick on FIRE !!!!!

Atlantic DEVFEST Hackathon in partnership with CAA Atlantic PitchFest

The CAA Atlantic Virtual Hackathon will take place over two days on a video conference platform, where participants can team up to build innovative solutions to challenges that currently exist in Atlantic Canada’s travel industry. We have had to come to the difficult decision to postpone the Hackathon this weekend. While we did have a lot of spoken interest, the paid registrations haven’t been enough to make it a fair competition. We believe there were a few factors that led to the low registration, including: a) lack of an in-person social gathering which Hackathons have been known for b) students being overwhelmed with back to school procedures c) the extended time commitment We still strongly believe that the subject matter, mentors, prizes and especially judges were a compelling story. Therefore we would like to transform the Hackathon rather than cancel it outright. Our plan is to pivot the event to become a Pitch Fest. Rather than participants dedicating their full weekend, you will simply bring your business concepts or technologies to “pitch” at the final judging session. We understand that you have busy schedules, so we wish we could provide as much notice as possible. We are looking at Sunday, Nov-22nd for the final event. We can send more details over once we've finalized the event format. In CAA PitchFest & GDG Atlantic Devfest, expert mentors from the travel industry along with business professionals will guide and educate attendees on the successful creation of a business model or technical solution. Throughout the Hackathon, participants have the opportunity to innovate the future of travel, virtually network and collaborate with like-minded people, develop new skills, and win prizes!
