Google Developer Group DevFests spread worldwide
One for Android developers. It was a couple of months ago that the annual developer conference Google I/O took place – in San Francisco – and now Google is taking things worldwide, with a series of GDG DevFest events.
GDGs, by the way, are Google Developer Groups, for developers who are interested in the search giant’s technology; “everything from the Android, App Engine, and Google Chrome platforms, to product APIs like the Maps API, YouTube API and Google Calendar API.”
Uttam Tripathi, of Google’s Developer Relations Team, has highlighted the series of events on the company’s Developer Blog.
Here’s how Google describes the Google Developer Groups:
Google Developer Groups (GDGs) are for developers who are interested in Google’s developer technology; everything from the Android, App Engine, and Google Chrome platforms, to product APIs like the Maps API, YouTube API and Google Calendar API.
“A GDG can take many forms,” says Google, “from just a few people getting together to watch our latest video, to large gatherings with demos and tech talks, to events like code sprints and hackathons. However, at the core, GDGs are focused on developers and technical content, and the core audience should be developers.”
