DevFest 2020 brings together thousands of developers globally for community-led technical learning and a shared passion for technologies.
The magic of DevFest has always come from the people involved - developers from all different backgrounds and skill levels.

This global moment empowers developers to teach, learn, and connect when they may need it the most.
Whether it be through technical talks delivered in local languages, a keynote provided by Google Developers, or by simply meeting fellow local developers, DevFest attendees learn about how Google developer products can help them do what they do best - develop. Sessions cover a wide variety of technologies with speakers from Google, Google Developer Groups, Women Techmakers, Google Developer Experts, and more.
