Welcome to the Google Developer Group for Hampshire and Surrey!
We're about all things Google: Chrome, Android, Polymer, AngularJS, App Engine, Firebase, Cast, AdWords/AdSense/AdMob, Android Pay and more. We're primarily a bunch of developers, so we like the view under the hood, and we're not too shy to take a look at code from time to time.
Anyone interested in any of these technologies is very welcome - whether a seasoned veteran, or if you've no experience whatsoever and are looking for a guiding hand. Often we get an early look at emerging Google technologies.
Typically we meet monthly, a cycle of talks/presentations one month and study jams the next. There's always free food and good chat.
We're the official GDG for the counties of Hampshire and Surrey including the M3 corridor running from Southampton to Staines. We meet at Innovation Centre, Basing View, Basingstoke.
Disclaimer: GDG Hants & Surrey is an independent group; our activities and the opinions expressed here should in no way be linked to Google, the corporation.
We welcome back Lewis Oaten from Razorsecure and Jules and Liam from Apps in the Sky for part five in our front/back end series where they will discuss their experiences and the tools that they have used in the respective businesses. So, come and join the us and be part of the growing tech community here in Basingstoke. All are welcome and we'll have free beer and pizza courtesy of our sponsors: University of Surrey, Desk Lodge and XL Communications. Here's what our speakers will cover this month:
