Until next year...

First off, we'd like to thank everyone for coming to the first community-organized DevFest in the Philippines. We hope you had fun!

We're quite at a loss for words and did not expect awesomeness to happen --- turnout was much better than expected given the horrible weather, plus #DevFestPH trended on Google+ and Twitter!!! THANK YOU!!!

Attendees started to trickle in at around 8am...

... for the 9am hangout out with Christine Songco-Lau, Timothy Jordan and Stephanie Liu

Keynote by Nelson Mattos, Vice President of Product & Engineering for Europe and Emerging Markets

Here, developers will be able to interact with Google engineers and local developers who work on the products and ask them questions.The engineers will also talk about the latest and greatest from Google, with best practices on how to improve the quality of web and mobile apps.

Target audience for the Manila leg's DevFest are web and mobile developers of all skill levels building applications using Google technologies.
