Welcome software engineers, programmers, developers, designers, architects! This is an independent developer user group covering various technologies. This group was founded in 2009 by Robert Hancock and Dario Laverde. It is an independent not-for-profit volunteer run organization first known as the NYC GTUG (Google Technology User Group). It became the NYC GDG (Google Developer Group) focusing on but not exclusive to Google technologies. It is not directly affiliated with Google or run by Google.
This group has been 'rebooted' to return to its roots but this time without exclusively focusing on a single company's technologies (hence the name change) although of course many Google technologies will continue to be covered. This meetup will widen the scope of outreach to other technologies and groups for developers in the NYC tech community. There will be panels, joint meetups and activities focusing on technical content and information benefiting the NYC developer community. For those who wish to continue with the officially listed Google affiliated Google Developer Group for NYC (which will continue in the fine hands of Nitya Narasimhan and Ralph Yozzo) you can join http://meetup.com/gdgnyc
