Last year was the first time the Google Developer Group (GDG) community hosted a series of DevFests globally, and what an awesome DevFest season it was! There were 77 DevFests across 41 countries reaching over 14,000 developers.
    
Inspired by the success of last year's DevFests, we are working with GDGs around the world to enable an even larger set of events this year.

GDG DevFest 2013 will consist of two seasons:
  • 13th Sep. - 29th Sep.
  • 18th Oct. - 10th Nov.

Across both seasons, GDGs plan to host more than 160 DevFests spread over 63 countries that are expected to reach over 30,000 developers. More than 20 countries will have their first-ever DevFest this year!

Each GDG DevFest will be inspired by and uniquely tailored to the needs of the developer community that hosts it. While no two events will be exactly alike, each GDG DevFest will at its core be powered by a shared belief that when developers come together to exchange ideas, amazing things can happen.

Check out the global DevFest event map and join the GDG community as they celebrate DevFest in your region.
