What is a GDG?

Google Developer Groups (GDGs) are for developers who are interested in Google's developer technology; everything from the AndroidApp Engine, and Google Chrome platforms, to product APIs like the Maps API,YouTube API and Google Calendar API.
A GDG can take many forms -- 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.

A GDG is

  • Run by passionate individuals in the developer community
  • A place to learn about Google Technologies and Tools for developers.
  • A place to see what local companies and developers are doing with these technologies
  • Focused on developers and educational technical content
  • Open to the public with a public membership
  • A place to meet cool and smart people in tech :)

A GDG is NOT...

  • Run by a corporation
  • A place to hear a very salesy pitch at any time
  • Focused on end users or consumer content
  • A closed group
