About this event

DevFest Canada @ UTM 2023 is a tech conference led by GDSC UTM for student developer audiences interested in learning about the latest trends in Google technology.


DevFest Canada stands as the largest collaboration of GDSCs in Canada's history. It's a union of passionate student developers from the Pacific to the Atlantic, embodying Google's mission of nurturing a strong and innovative tech community. DevFest Canada brings together thousands of students who are enthusiastic about Google's technology and products, empowering them to grow their knowledge, unite with like-minded peers, and impact their community by pushing the boundaries of what's possible. GDSC communities in Canada will have their independent DevFest to represent their unique communities, but together to build Canadian GDSC community better.
