What happens when Star Wars meets Tech? DevWars [A DevFest 2022 Event], a dope all-ages tech-equity summit!

Are you a Sith Lord living in the tech “darkside,” or are you ready to learn live the principles of a tech JEDI #Justice #Equity #Diversity #Inclusion and use THE FORCE to elevate tech in our community?!


DevFest is an annual decentralized world-wide tech conference hosted by Google Developer Groups. GDG and Women Techmakers Modesto are at it once again, disrupting your regularly scheduled program to create a space for tech in the Central Valley. There will be inspiring tech-equity talks for our community, career conversations for the young skywalkers interested in learning more and technical workshops for the Yodas in the room.

Our friends at Stanislaus County Office of Education’s Career Inspiration Center are bringing their lightsabers…errr we mean cool drones and 3D equipment, DJ El Super Fantastico will be spinning the vinyl and hopefully a stormtrooper or two will drop by.

In the wise words of a little green Yoda, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” #TECHJEDI
