    What we're about

    We are software developers, designers, educators and students with an interest in learning about emergent technologies in areas including mobile, web, wearables, cloud-native computing, education technology, data sciences and smart homes.

    GDG Capital Region events will be a mixture of tech talks/demos that explore, for example, concepts and best practices, and hands-on hacking sessions that involve coding and collaboration. We also host flagship 'Extended' and 'DevFest' events. Please see the highlights of our 2016 DevFest here ( Also, follow us on Twitter (

    To multiply the impact, we partner with leaders in the local and regional business and technical communities, including Apprenda, StartFast Code, Informz, Hudson Valley Community College, Odd Networks, Albany Can Code, etc.

    Our talks may feature Google-developed technology but will also extend to other technologies, products and platforms as well. Focus is on collaborative communities and exciting technology that our developers can get their hands dirty with.

    The overall primary goals of GDG Capital Region are to create networking, collaboration and entrepreneurial connections for technology enthusiasts in Albany, Troy, Saratoga, Schenectady and the entire Capital Region. If this fits, come check us out.

    GDG Capital Region is an independent group; our activities and the opinions expressed here should in no way be linked to Google, the corporation. To learn more about the GGDG program, please visit:
