DevFest Lahore 2023

We closed off the year 2023 with a bang, and now I want to share it with you all! ✨

I am thrilled to share the incredible success of DevFest Lahore 2023, the largest gathering of software engineers / developers in our region! As Google Developers Group (GDG Lahore), it’s truly heartening to witness the tech community come together for a day filled with technical learning, collaboration, and innovation on a WEEKEND!

This was our 7th edition of DevFest and I may be biased, but this was our BEST one yet! 🚀

🌐 Theme: “Gen AI for Everyone!”

This year, DevFest revolved around the theme “Gen AI for Everyone!”, featuring talks and workshops by Google engineers, Google Developer Experts along with other notable speakers on the topics of generative AI, machine learning, Gemini, TensorFlow, Android, ChromeOS and Flutter.

All the technical sessions are coming soon on our YouTube channel. The journey doesn’t end here, and I’m excited for the continued growth and collaboration within our tech and developer community.

It’s been over 11 years of running this community and cannot be more proud of what we have achieved in this time. All credits go to the AMAZING team that I work with and for everything you guys single-handedly managed: Muaaz Saeed, Salman Arif, Mughees Mb, Armghan Ahmad, Shahzaib Naseer, Saad Muzaffar, the entire GDSC clan (shiza asghar, Maaz Ajmal, Umair Farhat, Taskeen Fatima) and so many more! 🫡 This was all possible because of our dream team who put their BEST effort, energy and time to make this conference happen – the last 1 month wasn’t easy, I know 😂
