2017 Valley DevFest Preparations Underway
This will be the second year of Valley Devfest following the very successful Fresno DevFest over the previous 3 years. Nancy Mohamed will be the lead for the event. Last year over 300 attended and there is an effort to expand the space to improve the experience for the attendees. Four committees met last week to brainstorm what, where, when and how.
More information coming in May
Date: October 2017 Location: at Bitwise South Stadium
Fresno GDG is coordinating the event. Specifics about tracks and speakers are under development and expect it to be modeled like the 2016 event with great talks and speakers.
Google Developer Groups (GDGs) are for developers who are interested in Google's developer technology; everything from the Android, Chrome, Drive, and Google Cloud platforms, to product APIs like the Cast API, Maps API, and YouTube API.
A GDG can take many forms - from just a few people getting together to watch Google's latest video, to large gatherings with demos and tech talks, to events like code sprints and hackathons. However, at the core, GDGs are focused on developers and technical content, and the core audience should be developers.
GDG Fresno has regular tech talks the first Thursday of the month (see calendar) and has provided hackathons too. There has been some affiliated groups arise like an active local Women Techmaker (see calendar) which meets the third Sunday of the month and information about meeting is through our calendar link and Meetup.
