What is TX DevFest?

DevFest is a regional event for software developers organized by Google Developer Groups. This year the Austin, Dallas, and Houston GDG chapters are hosting a DevFest in Austin on July 12th & 13th.

TX DevFest is a two day conference with speakers from Google and the developer community. Each day is divided into 50 minute sessions containing either a single speaker or four ten-minute presentations. A demo/code-lab/lounge area is also provided.

The two major topic areas are Android and Web/JavaScript development. However, other Google related and open technologies such as Google Glass are also included. To paraphrase Larry Page near the end of the keynote at Google I/O: let's focus on interesting things.

Registration/ticket information

Registration opens on Friday, June 14th. Ticket prices are $10 per day. The price is low thanks to our sponsors and an all volunteer staff who want to support and grow the local developer community.


Attendees from Dallas, Houston, and other areas outside of Central Texas are welcome. Find out more about conference hotel rooms and car pools from Dallas in the travel section of this site.
