For the past few years, Google has been hosting DevFest events in several cities all over the world. It’s a couple of days where developers, designers and other software professionals get together to hear the latest on google technologies and related topics, straight from the engineers who work on them.
On November 1st and 2nd, we had the second edition of the DevFest in Buenos Aires. Hexacta sent around five or six excited participants each day — I got to be there on day one.
Android and Internet computing caught the focus this year. The event featured a number of presentations on Android, Chrome and HTML5, Application Engine and GWT. Not all of them were purely technical: we also heard tips and guidelines on how to make the most of these products to build great applications (and hopefully sell them, too!). We will be writing all about it on our IT Blog.
