DevFest Tour - Coming to a City Near You



Just last month we had Google I/O and although we had attendees from all over the world join us for the festivities, we know that most of you could not join us in San Francisco. To help make up for that, we decided to do a DevFest tour and recently announced that we were on our way to visit Australia (Sydney), Israel, and Southeast Asia (Manila, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur) in the next couple months. Then, there’s Spain (Madrid), Argentina (Buenos Aires), and Chile (Santiago) in October. Here’s your chance to hear about your favorite Google technologies and interact with the Googlers that work on them every day.

Today, we’ve updated the site to include the cities we’re visiting and topics we’d like to cover, along with registration links for the first round of events. Space is limited at each location and we cannot guarantee that everyone will be able to secure a spot so register early, check your email for confirmation and check back for any event updates.

For many of our international speakers, this is their first time visiting most of the cities on our tour, and they're incredibly excited to meet the local developer communities and learn what you're doing with our technologies - or what you're thinking of doing.

We hope to see you there!

  1. On the same vein, why not India? There is a massive developer population here, and you've got two (three?) offices here too :-/

  2. Looks like you're assuming that anyone in North America who wanted to go to I/O did. How about a DevFest tour of US and Canadian cities?

  3. Why events like this don't be in Turkey? There are a lot of developer and Google Fun. But google isn't thinking about Turkey.

  4. Well, I'm Italian and I would also like to see Google take into consideration Rome or Milan.

    But India and Brazil cannot really be skipped, given the dev power they have. China would be as important obviously, but they chose to be evil.

  5. Is it possible to request for an Android session? Perhaps Cloud-to-Device Messaging? It can be a good topic in relation to using App Engine.
    Thanks.

  6. This looks like this years equivalent of the old developer days, and they move around the world every year so if you had one in the past 2 years the chance of getting one this year is lower (which covers Brazil [2009], India [2008], Italy [2008])
