GDG Devfest Barcelona 2013 Roundup

GDG Devfest Barcelona 2013

First I need to say the GDG Defvest Barcelona 2013 was a great event, with really great speakers and amazing technologies.

I think it is best if I go one by one on the conferences I assisted.

Customer Development with Google Tools

It was a nice talk oriented to new startups. They showed a nice use of Google technologies to be able to achieve a product – market fit. There was a tool for every step along the lean methodology. Among the different free or relatively inexpensive tools available from Google, they showed us a good way to use trends or customer Survey for the discovery part to research the market and to use Google Analytics and Google AdWords for market validations. Essentially max out the power of the tools Google has made available for start ups.

All in all it was a good talk: it gave a hands-on point of view about one of the best ways to create and develop a product-market fit, how there was a specific tool to advance in each area and some of the traps you can find along the way. A good way to start the GDG Defvest Barcelona 2013.

 

Liquid Galaxy

I was really amazed by this technology. I didn’t know anything about this before coming so first I had no expectations and second it was a positive surprise. Liquid galaxy creates an immersive sensation by using Google maps and Google earth among multiple huge displays. We were able to see the technology that was behind such great product and also some of the multiple possible applications of this technology.… Read the rest of “GDG Devfest Barcelona 2013 Roundup”

GDG Devfest Barcelona 2013

GDG Devfest Barcelona 2013

Tomorrow October 11th is the GDG ( Google Developers Group) Devfest Barcelona 2013, the biggest event for developers dedicated to Google technologies in Spain. It takes place at the UPC, the Polytechnic University Of Barcelona and also at the  the Mobile World Centre, the central building of the Mobile World Capital.

 

The event will bring together more than 600 expert developers interested in Google technologies. The ticket assistance count is actually around 900 people.

 

It will be a Full Day event with a lot of appealing conferences and seminars. Topics are very interesting and they cover a wide range of themes, from Startup and entrepreneurial oriented talks to a Google Glass hands on.

 

I am particularly interested in the conference about Customer Development with Google tools by a Google Developer program manager in Madrid, the Google Glass hands on and an entrepreneurial seminar about starting a company at San Francisco and Barcelona.

 

I was looking forward to get an entrance that included the evening event at the Mobile world center, where there will be a conference about App marketing and media communications, but unfortunately I was only able to get a day pass (not bad at all though ;-) )

 

If you want more information about the event, you can access the GDG Barcelona website. I hope I see some familiar faces tomorrow at the event.
