The Missoula Google Developer Group (GDG) brings together people who are interested in technology and software in Missoula. If you are looking for employment, you can make connections to tech companies in the area and make a good impression. If you're looking to hire, you can get to know developers in person. Either way you get to hear about cool new technology and share some food and drinks with like minded people.
If you or someone you know might be interested in presenting or showing something that they built recently send a message to one of the organizers or bring it up and the next meeting.
