DevFest 2019 is a one-day hackathon where students get together with friends or new people to form a team, and create something, normally coding based, using a Google service or technology, such as Angular or Firebase. The event will be hosted at UW-Milwaukee's Lubar Entrepreneurship Center and is open to all university students. All participants will receive a t-shirt, lunch and will be entered into the random prize drawings.

This iteration of DevFest is sponsored by Northwestern Mutual, Refinitiv, Uline and Milwaukee Tool. The sponsoring organizations will have representatives at the event to talk with you, so make sure to bring your resume!

Available parking will be found on the streets just south of the venue (streets such as Cramer St., Murray Ave., Frederick Ave.). Another available form of transportation is using the MCTS, as there are many bus lines that have stops on UWM’s campus.

All attendees MUST bring an ID, and a laptop is highly recommended as this is primarily a programming-focused hackathon (no materials for other projects will be provided, though you may bring your own).
