DevFest Vienna 2012

We had DevFest Vienna this weekend as a joint event from us (GDG Vienna) and the Java Student User Group.

A total of 143 people checked-in on day 1 at the TU Wien for sessions on mobile and web, cloud and social. A total of eleven sessions offered something for everyone!

The afterparty at the Nelson's was a great opportunity for socializing, completing day 1.  We had small color-changing lights on the table which attendees were allowed to take home afterwards, free drinks, music, a C64 emulator installation, a raffle of some prizes like books, Raspberry Pi's or Arduino kits, ... - a great relaxing atmosphere for chatting and exchanging ideas.

For the hackathon in the Metalab we had to limit the number of tickets offered. We had a prize for every attendee: Nexus 7 as the main prize for the winning teams and then a Sphero ball, Raspberry Pi's, Arduinos, books, Android-shaped loudspeakers, ...

All sessions were recorded and we are in the process of uploading them to youtube, together with links to the session materials. Stay tuned!
