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. In 2015, the official DevFest Season runs from September 01st through November 30th.

We have a very exciting event coming up, with our friends from Google Cloud, they will be bringing a Cloud Spin rig to take some cool pictures and explain how do they work.

Followed by some lunch, and then by a workshop to get you started using Big Query.

We will have lots of google promotional materials, and some good surprises!


11 - 12 Google Cloud Spin

12 - 1 Lunch, take pictures and make new friends

1 - 4 Google Big Query workshop

4 - 5 Women TechMakers launch and Community presentations

Cloud Spin: Mark & Sandeep will walk through features of the Google Cloud Platform used in building the Google Cloud Spin demo shown at recent #GCPNext events. The demo uses an orchestrated set of smartphones to capture multi-angle views of the same event, upload them to the cloud and have them stitched together in real time to create a single 180-degree snapshot of that moment.

Demo: They will have a live demo setup that folks can stop by and participate in!

BigQuery Workshop: Data is great, but insights are better. Learn how you can use BigQuery to analyze terabytes of data in seconds using SQL, without ever setting up a cluster or learning a complicated new syntax. Sandeep and Mark will give an overview of BigQuery and the motivations behind data processing at Google, and then you can get your hands dirty writing your own queries!
