We always seek speakers for monthly meetups, Google events and other events. Please submit your talk here (DevFest 2023) if you have something extraordinary to share with the Burnaby/Lower Mainland tech community. We will contact you with further details if the topic excites our audience.


As a community-run event, event volunteers are critical to our success! We need volunteers to help us in the in-person event. If you want to volunteer, please reach out in discord and send us an intro and some insights on how you can add value to our community.


GDG Burnaby is a volunteer-driven group dedicated to providing people of all skill levels free and low-cost access to professional networking and the opportunity to learn new technology skills in various formats. We rely on sponsors to defray the costs of our events, such as speaker fees, educational material, catering, equipment rental, and advertising our events to reach more people in our community.
