WHAT is DEVFEST?

**Please note** - the new event date is now Saturday, January 29, 2022

DevFest is one of the larger scale community-driven tech conferences in the UK & Ireland, carefully crafted for you by the Google Developer Group (GDG) community!  GDG is a group of developers passionate about Google technologies with a strong focus on knowledge exchange and networking.

This year's DevFest UK & Ireland will be a hybrid one (in-person and virtual), with the in-person part being held and hosted by King's College London.

Learn about Mobile, Web, Cloud, AI, Machine Learning, Hot Tech and more from world experts.  We also have a track dedicated solely on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

All in-person attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative lateral flow test taken within the last 48 hours of the event starting.

Everyone will be required to wear a mask (unless you have a previous proof of exemption) for the duration of the event when inside and not eating or drinking.
