Can you believe it - the year isn't over yet, and conferences are already sending save-the-date emails!

But before the year officially draws to a close, there is DevFest season! DevFest is an annual distributed tech conference hosted by the Google Developer Groups (GDG) community, and they are open to anyone - you don't need to be a die-hard Android fanboy or fangirl to attend these!

Case in point, I think it's no secret that I'm a big fan of Apple's operating systems and platforms, and I have the honour to be speaking at DevFest Hamburg (November 3rd / 4th) and DevFest Berlin (November 25th). I will also be at Copenhagen Swift & Cocoa on December 6th (at the Google office in Copenhagen!).

My talks will be about an app that I have been working on for the past couple of weeks - a personal knowledge base powered by Firebase, Cloud SQL, PaLM, LangChain, and .... Siri! Oh, and of course the frontend is built with SwiftUI. So, if you're interested in learning how you can use Firebase to build AI-enabled apps, come to one of these events!

And don't be shy to say hi and tell me you're a subscriber - it's always great to meet people IRL that you've only known online before!

Thanks for reading, and see you soon!
