Devfest Düsseldorf in the making

A Developer Conference

Some of you who stop by here from time to time may know/remember that I am part of the organiser team for #GDGDUS - GDG Düsseldorf (more about it here) and Women Techmakers Düsseldorf. 

We are a part of a bigger community, Google Developers across the globe. While GDG != Google we do have a connection to Google and we are supported by Google - but most of all, GDG across the globe and across the DACH region cooperate in various formats. We could not do this without the members and we wouldn't be so strong if we didn't cooperate with GDG:s in the rest of the DACH region - sharing ideas, discussing approaches, speaking at each others event, meeting up on a regular basis, online or face to face - at the Firebase Devsummit, for example. 

Many GDG:s run events at the same time, the next big one coming up is Google I/O Extended which we of course do here in Düsseldorf as well. 

But the really big thing coming up is coming up in the autumn - Devfest season! Devfest - Developer Fest - is a conference series and GDG:s across the globe organise developer conferences across the globe, developer conferences covering different topics in the tech field - from Cloud to Android, from hardcore code to design, usability, accessibility.

What happened to all the travel posts?

Where are the photos and everything else from travel?

There was a time when I posted much more, and there was a time when  there were a lot more travel posts.


There was also a time when there was another blog, more anonymous,  with quite a  bit of travel tips - that blog is long gone, I deactivated it and stopped writing when I had started to move to Taiwan.


There used to be an artblog as well but that has been gone even longer, and it wasn't up and running very long either - took a lot of time to do all the research I felt it needed.

With the travel tips and ideas: Well, the blog turned more into a blog about tech, sustainability, events and so on.

However there is another forum, a little blog where I post very little text but I post photos now and then - the photoblog. Feel free to visit me there! With the photos there are little stories as well so it might be interesting.

Today I was dreaming about San Jose in California and I posted a photo from there.
