Finally! The talk I gave at +DevFest Berlin 2014 is online. It’s about Code Generation in Go (and how you can use THAT instead of generics).

It’s also a little out-dated by now since we got `go generate` in Go 1.4.

10/10 would orga again.

Seriously, though: Can’t describe how much these guys rock; how much work they did when I couldn’t manage to do mine and how unbelievably uncomplicated and relaxed the #DevFest  itself was with them. Looking forward to next year already.

Day 3 of #DevFestBerlin  ended in a wave of projects

Now THIS was an end worthy of the awesomeness of this weekend. After a day of hacking we saw 16 project demos using a wide range of technologies. We encouraged everyone to share their creation as open source on +GitHub and we'll fork them under our account here https://github.com/devfest-berlin/

There were a lot of entertaining projects but the winner by public vote by far was #WairGuitar , an Air Guitar App for your #AndroidWear  device. The picture shows the making of the accords app that accompanies the "air guitar gesture recognition" wear app.

Again, everyone seemed to be very happy with the event and we organizers enjoyed it so much.

There will be a summary post on the DevFest as a whole later this week and we'll be back next year.

Travis Reeder, CTO at Iron.io, seems to be checking out goptions. It’s one of my oldest still actively maintained projects for advanced command-line flag parsing.

Feel free to check it out yourself!

I just announced the next +GDG Berlin Golang meetup on January 29th, when +Francesc Campoy Flores will be visiting us. Go RSVP now!

In the description, I also casually announced that I have been hired by Google and will be starting to work in London in early March as a Developer Programs Engineer alongside my old colleague +Benjamin Weiss. The consequences are manifold: I will not be eligible to be a GDE, I can’t work for my Co-Organzier and long-time boss +David Lehmann but most crucial of all: I can’t continue to be a proper organizer of the +GDG Berlin Golang. #sadpanda  

However, this is a huge opportunity for me personally and I hope I can use it to do great things one way or another. Maybe, at some point, I can share some of the metaphorical cake with the Berlin community, that, if I’m being honest, is the sole reason I got this far in the first place.

#DevFestBerlin 2014 in pictures

A picture can tell a 1000 words but being actually part of such an event can't be expressed in 1000 pictures. Still, for everyone who couldn't take part in our great event last week here are a few action shots.

We had much fun this year and we hope to welcome you next year, too.

A proper summary post is in the works but enjoy the pictures for now.

Day 2 of #DevFestBerlin successfully ended

With 238 people checked in at the event, 15 speakers in 3 parallel tracks and countless liters of coffee and Club Mate this was our most busy day yet.

Each of the tracks on Android, Web and Cloud was well received and blessed with a number of great speakers from our local community as well as dear friends from the London community. Especially we were happy to welcome long time co-organizer +Benjamin Weiss​ back in his old home town, this time as a speaker from Google.

Following our last year's model each of the tracks concluded the day with a fireside chat of all speakers of the track, making some room for an open discussion on previous talks or more general thoughts on the topic.

We as organizers enjoyed the day ourselves which is a very good sign but we also received overwhelmingly good feedback. Every negative feedback, which was really rare to begin with, is recorded and tried to be fixed in 2015. Keep it coming, both positive and negative feedback.

Thank you already, Berlin community. It was so much fun. We are looking forward to tomorrow to the hackathon in which YOU build great things and leave us with an open mouth.

Can confirm. Internet was broken 😄
 
Day 1 of #DevFestBerlin was awesome

Wow, what a day that was. When we planned our workshops we weren't sure how many people will show up and which of the three courses will be the most interesting to our attendees.

But we were overwhelmed by the interest in all of them. More than 130 people showed up to take part in these self guided trainings featuring #Go, #Android and #Polymer - as part of the #itshackadamic series.

Running at full capacity, or even a bit over that, we managed to break the WiFi (again) and slow it down significantly. But that didn't break our spirit so with the help of flash drives and local servers we could bring the courses to a success.

A big, big thanks to ImmobilienScout24, our gracious sponsor and host, all the coaches and all helping hands. It was a blast already and we are so excited for tomorrow's conference day!

Agenda updated and crossing 200 tickets today

Just 11 days until we kick-off our weekend of awesome. We just informed another batch of speakers that their talk got accepted and updated the agenda accordingly. 

http://devfest-berlin.de/#/2014/agenda

We are very happy to see the range of submissions by the community.

On a very personal note we are happy to announce that our long term community member +Benjamin Weiss is joining us this year as a Googler (or dare we say Noogler?) to update us on the bag of features that #AndroidLollipop  is.

As far as projections go we will cross the 200 ticket mark today and hope to top our last years attendees by large. Help us, spread the word!
GDG DevFests are large, community-run events that can offer speaker sessions across multiple product areas, all-day hack-a-thons, code labs, and more. And Berlin got it's own!
