Detroit Google Developers Group Pages

The Detroit GDG is an official Google recognized developer group. We have been meeting for the past year on a monthly basis at Quicken Loans’ offices in downtown Detroit. Our meetings typically attract between 20-30 developers. Our meetings typically involve one or more speakers presenting on a topic. Some of the topics we’ve had include the Google Maps Web API, Android Development and User Interface testing, as well as the popular Android Custom ROM – CyanogenMod.

The Detroit GDG currently maintains a group where members can register for meetings. The group can be found at and currently has 90 members.

Two Android application developers currently lead the group - Don Ward and Nathan Hughes.

Don Ward has been involved in the local software developer community for the past three years helping organize such events as 1DevDay Detroit 2011 and 2012, MobiDevDay 2010, and CloudDevDay 2010. He also led the Greater Detroit Cloud Computing Users Group for two years with a active membership of 60 people. Currently Don Ward is an avid Google technology enthusiast and enjoys developing Android applications for Quicken Loans during the day.

Nathan Hughes has been involved with the Detroit GDG for the past six months and has been instrumental in helping plan and organize each meeting. He also enjoys developing Android applications for Quicken Loans during the day.
