What we're about

We are a group of developers learning, sharing and discovering more about innovative technologies developed by Google as well as things adjacent or complementary. We cover topics such as Android, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Firebase, Material Design, Internet of Things (IoT) and everything in between. We meet once a month, focus on technical content, have expert speakers, and the group's activities are generally free and all are welcome. From time to time we offer codelabs & workshops.

Interested in giving a talk or sponsoring an event? Feel free to get hold of us on Meetup or Twitter, or email us at gdgcapetown@gmail.com . We would love to hear from you!
