Halfway through November, GDG Madurai was getting ready to conduct the second edition of Devfest’16 in Madurai.

In this edition, students and developers got together to the latest cutting edge technologies like cloud computing, VR and VFX, big data analytics on IOT and Progressive web apps.

Cloud computing is one of most emerging skills today; this session was completely handled by Mr. Karthik Padmanabhan who is working in Google. He started his speech by telling, it’s all on the cloud!! His energy level was in full swing while answering the plenty of questions from student’s side, still now our participants are asking questions to him via twitter.
