Tauranga Local Showcase

A showcase of awesome projects from our talented and innovative local developers.

What's it all about?

Join us to kick off TechWeek19 with a showcase of awesome development happening in the area, to show how our talented local developers are innovating for the good of the world.

We're planning an exciting evening where we'll hear from talented local developers and innovators on their projects - whether personal or professional (or both!) This is a tech talk, not a product marketing spin, so expect to dive into the tech, hear about the challenges and obstacles of creating, and to be inspired!

<<< Want to show off an awesome project you've been working on? Submit a request to speak by emailing us at juniordevtga@gmail.com! Each talk will be allocated up to 20 minutes with part of that being Q&A, but it's up to the speakers to decide how much time they want and how they'll use it. >>>
