DevFests are community-led, developer events hosted by GDG chapters around the globe focused on community building and learning about Google’s technologies. Each DevFest is inspired by and uniquely tailored to the needs of the developer community and region that hosts it.

DevFests at its core is powered by a shared belief that when developers come together to exchange ideas, amazing things can happen. This year's theme is geared around learning =) We will be having skills collection competition and the people with the most badges win! Most badges have workshops that you can attend on the day to help you with your collection =)
