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.
The invitation to host a GDG DevFest is being extended to active GDG chapters. And for this reason in Greece we decided to have a “mobile” DevFest, therefore to be able to reach all the cities in Greece that would like to host one and there engage with the community for creating their own GDG chapter. GDG DevFests can be organized year round and are community run events. Therefore, these events take the form desired by the community with minimal guidelines. In order to ensure these events are bigger than regular GDG meetups though, there are a few recommendations:
- Duration of the event should be at least 5 hours
- Ideally more than 1 track if organizing a speaker session based event
- Hackathon – Ideally somewhere between 24-48 hours
- Code lab – Ideally using one of the content bundles.
