Join us for the annual developer festival of sessions, workshops, training, codelabs, and much more by awesome speakers. With over 2,000 developers from across the South West Region of Nigeria in 2018, more than 2,200 from #DevFestLagos 2019, and also our virtual DevFestLagos event in 2020, DevFest 2021 promises to be bigger and better and is going to feature physical, in-person audiences.

This event will take place on Saturday, November 27, 2021, and will feature sessions on Mental Health, Mobile, Design, Web, Cloud, DevOps, Machine Learning, and still more to come. The sessions are happening in parallel so you will get to choose and plan to attend the sessions that fit your profile or things you’d like to learn about.

In case you are wondering, DevFests are large-scale community-run events that can offer speaker sessions across Google product areas, workshops, codelabs, or hackathons. This DevFest is organized by fellow developers who are organizers of several Google Developer Groups.
