GDG Berlin - December Reboot

Dear Google Developers,

A successful DevFest lies behind us and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. The 3 day event proved that Berlin has a very active community and there are a lot of people that can share interesting experiences.

More community!

As December is also the right time for reflecting on the past year we can say that we as organizers can and should do better in involving you, the community. Without you there is no group. In that spirit this upcoming meetup has no fixed agenda nor a venue yet because it's about your choice and your contributions.

We set the date and prepared a moderator for you to propose and vote on talks. Everyone is invited to participate. We got this idea from the +GDG Android in Berlin which has been doing this successfully for a few months now.

A few days before the meetup we'll close the voting and select the most wanted talks. The remaining proposals can of course reenter in a later meeting.

Your votes have been counted and we picked the 2 talks. Thanks for your contributions!

    i loved Polymer staff. Already trying to apply new knowledge =)
    Could we probably make this with Dart next time. I mean how to combine Polymer with Dart and probably Angular with Dart... what do you think?

    December 13, 2013

    • Stefan H.

      Search for AngularDart. It's almost ready for production.

      December 13, 2013

    • Yura S.

      yeah. i know =) i meant let's talk about this on Dart sessions.

    Hi, me again.

    Can you please check that your RSVP is current? We have to prepare name tags for the office and it's a pain to create them and then see half of them lying around after the meetup starts. Thanks!

      Will you join us on Thursday? I'd like to offer you another spot for your talk next year.

      December 10, 2013

    • Yura S.

      With a pleasure =)

  • Stefan H.

    Thank you for your votes and contributions. We'll hope to see this grow in the future.

    We picked two talks and updated the agenda. It's going to be an interesting evening.

    @the Dart proposal (Sorry, don't have your name): The interest was high but other were higher. So please get in touch with us so we can reschedule you for next time.

    So far 18 people have submitted 4 suggestions and cast 41 votes. That's a good start. Tomorrow we'll pick two talks so be sure to voice your opinion or propose a talk of your own!

  • Stefan H.

    Good news everyone. Google offered to host us again this time!

    But the participation in the new moderator http://www.google.com/moderator/#16/e=20c8e2 is too low as of now. Jerome and I would really enjoy seeing more talk proposals (even smaller ones) and more votes (click on the check mark on the right ✓ or X).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
