NOVA welcomes GDG DevFest Lisboa'19 + VOST DAY

6 December 2019 to 7 December 2019
NOVA's Rectorate, Campus de Campolide

Experts in Android, Web, Cloud, and Design come together later this week at NOVA for a day of lectures and workshops!

NOVA and Google are partners in GDG DevFest Lisboa'19 + VOST DAY, an event promoted by Google Developers Group, Women Techmakers Lisboa and VOST Portugal, which will take place on December 7th from 10 am at the Auditorium of the NOVA's Rectorate.

This Google conference is part of the DevFest Season, which is taking place in over 100 countries at the end of this year. However, each DevFest is unique - it adapts to the local or national community and has the most diverse formats. Intending to host 500 participants, this event will adopt the conference format - it will have a networking space, sweepstakes, and activities on various topics, with Google Developers Experts and national and international speakers, distributed in 3 tracks simultaneously:

  • Blue track - focused on development and programming
  • Green Track - dedicated to non-tech themes, everything that is complementary and essential, from business, user experience, design, ethics or product.
  • VOST.co.uk Red Track - dedicated to active citizenship with speakers from VOST Europe

DevFest'19 will also focus on issues such as diversity and inclusion in technology, seeking to be a gender equality event, as well as contributing to changing mindsets and making gender mainstreaming effective.

Some of the featured speakers include:

  • Alex Muramoto - Developer Advocate @ Google
  • Fellyph Cintra - Front End developer @ Deloitte, GDE
  • Iratxe Gómez Susaeta - Community Manager @ VOST.Europe
  • Caneco - Full-stack developer @ Medicare
  • Krzysztof Głuszczyk - Lead Android Developer @ Ryanair Labs Wrocław
  • Nuno Carneiro - Coordinator @ Politics For All

The tickets to the conference have a symbolic value, which will be entirely donated to the non-profit association.
