GDG DevFestW Mbale 2013

DevFestW  Mbale  community-led event that has technical sessions centered around Google Developer Technologies and platforms. This events is focused on bringing together women in local developer communities to teach, learn, code and network. They are organized with the community needs in mind which makes them the best for the targeted audience. It is a fact that women are not involved heavily in technology activities and sessions as men, so DevFestW Mbale is here to address this and also bridge the big gap between women and cutting edge technology participation.
DevFestW will take place on 30 March at Maisha Africa Hotel from 9:00am to 5:30pm. There will be a lot to learn, share and code.
