DevLearn 2019 DemoFest Recap

DemoFest has been a part of DevLean for almost as long as DevLearn itself. This year thousands of DevLearn attendees flood the ballroom to see over 110 demonstrators sharing their work in areas such as soft skills training, video, simulations, and game-based solutions. This year DemoFest hosted 10 unique categories and our best of show for vendors and non-vendors.
