About this event

In 2023 we are visiting some of our partners. For each visit, we bring one or two of our usual tech talks to the party, but we also want to hear from our partners. Who are they, what moves them, which challenges are they facing, and how can we as GDG community contribute?

Specno makes the start by hosting us in February.  If your company is interested in participating in an event later this year, please drop us a message at


0. Intro & Welcome

1. From Dev to Founder - Kalden Swart

Factors to consider to avoid failure transitioning from a developer to a founder

2.  Concurrency in Dart - Ugo Mmirikwe

The talk aims to highlight what concurrency is in programming, in general, and in Dart, in particular. It will attempt to explain why it matters to understand concurrency. And it'll ultimately show how to implement it in your next Dart/Flutter project.

3. #FlutterForward Trip Report - Sylvia Dieckmann

I will give a brief informal summary of my impressions attending Flutter Forward, Google's flagship Flutter event in Nairobi in January.

4. Networking & Social
