Less than two weeks before Barcamp Saigon, Google Devfest (Google Hackathon) will be held at the University of Technology campus from 1-10PM on November 4. This event will also mark Google’s official presence in Vietnam.
If you are a local developer, you are highly encouraged to participate in this event. Registration is free, plus everything is covered by Google, from food, drinks, to T-shirts. If you are a press person, please help spread the words out, it’s important for local IT people to present at such international-quality event. If you own a software company, or work for one, you should go too. All you need to do is head to http://code.google.com/events/hackathons/devfest/devfest-saigon.html, fill out the form, and bingo, you are in!
Google Devfest Vietnam is a part of Google efforts to organize the event around South East Asia. They expect around 150-200 Vietnamese hard-core developers to show up so this is a great opportunity for you to come in contact with like-minded people and who knows if you are noticed and hired by Google, right?
We’re also announcing Barcamp Saigon at the event. See you there on Nov 4!
