The First Google Day Begins in Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh, Saturday November 29-30th, 2014: Hundreds of IT experts, business person, and students working and studying in the field of information technology come together today at ZAMAN University in the event of gDay & DevFest Cambodia 2014

Organized by local Google Developer and Google Business Groups, gDay (Google Day) is the first event to be held in Cambodia. However, in 2013 there was an event DevFest which was focused only on developer and IT Experts. 

In 2014, it is a bit difference since the two big events will be joined together in two days. gDay is leaded by Google Business Group Phnom Penh which will be focused on how to use Google technologies to maximize business while DevFest will be focused on training developers to new technology so that they can improve their skill to produce more applications.

The interesting thing is that according to Mr. Pich Viras, Community Manager of Google Business Group Phnom Penh, said “This time GBG will present how business can get more benefit and improve business online from Google technologies as well as how to make profit from it.”

Whereas, Google Developers Group will focus on a more participative event not just giving presentations and tech talks. “We will introduce the real first Hackhathon to this 2014 event” said Mr. Kong Somvannda, Community Co-manager. Added by Mr. Lonh Samdy, “Beside, Hackhathon, we will also have a CodeLab where participants need to complete a small program during 2-3 hours session.”


Based on Mr. Kong Somvannda and Mr. Lonh Samdy, both are Community Manager of Google Developer Group Phnom Penh, stressed that “We want Cambodia developers to be more practical by involving in coding session rather than sit still and listen to tech talks or presentations.”

So, What is really a hackathon?
Perwikipedia, “A hackathon (also known as a hack day,hackfest or codefest) is an event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers and project managers, collaborate intensively on software projects.”

Mr. Kong Somvannda who are responsible for PR and Communication for this event added that this year, we have big sponsors from Google, ZAMAN University, USAID’s Development Innovation, gGear - Official LG distributor, Online ISP, and MyTEB. LG will introduce SmartWatch and New Selfi Technology, and MyTEB will demonstrate affordable SmartPhone and Tablet.

gDay and DevFest Cambodia 2014 is a serious of world-wide community-lead events around the world that has technical and business sessions centered around Google Technologies and Platforms. It focuses on bringing together all passionate local developers, business persons, and students to share and to learn new technologies of code and network.
