Innofied @ Google Developers Group Kolkata DevFest 2015
A large GDG Fest just took place in Kolkata last week on 29th November at The Stadel. And Innofieders were a part of this 7 hours long Meetup. Yup! a great experience indeed.
GDG – Google Developers Group are a large community who run events across the globe offering speaker sessions on multiple Google products. One gets to be a part of all day long hackathons to code labs learning about products like Android, App Engine, Google Chrome to API products such as Maps API, YouTube API and Google Calendar API. In 2015, the official DevFest Season ran from September 01st through November 30th.
The GDG Fests are inspirational to Google enthusiasts as it uniquely tailors the needs of the developers community that hosts it.
