    GDG DevFest Kathmandu

    GDG DevFests are large scale community-run events that can offer speaker sessions across Google product areas, all-day hack-a-thons or both. DevFest Kathmandu is inspired by and uniquely tailored to the needs of our developer community. We are planning to cover Android, Google App Engine, Google Drive, Google Maps, GWT during devfest. Also, we are beginning "GDG Kathmandu - Barcamp" from this devfest which will continue as separate event afterwards. GDG DevFest at its core are powered by a shared belief that when developers come together to exchange ideas, amazing things can happen.
