What we're about

GDG stands for Google Developers Groups and is a platform offered by Google Developers to support community-run developer groups.
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 consider following us on Twitter.
To multiply the impact, we partner with leaders in the local and regional business and technical communities, as well as Google Developers.
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 GDG program, please visit: https://developers.google.com/groups

RSVP https://gdg.community.dev/events/details/google-gdg-suncoast-presents-compose-camp-kick-off/

We are excited to announce that GDG SunCoast is going to host Compose Camp.

This is an event series for people who are new to Android development and want to learn how to build apps using Jetpack Compose, which is Android’s modern UI toolkit. By participating in Compose Camp, you’ll learn in a group setting with other people, to keep you motivated through the journey and to lean on each other for support. We will be working through a curriculum that is offered by Google on Android development. You’ll learn the basics of the Kotlin programming language and how to build a collection of basic Android apps that you can customize as you desire.

All you need to bring is your laptop computer and headphones. Having an Android device is optional, but if you do have one, bring that with a USB cable so you can learn to run your apps on your device.

No programming experience is needed! If you’ve been wanting to learn how to build apps, this is your chance. Invest the time in upskilling yourself to learn the foundations of building modern Android apps with the support of our community, and who knows where that will you lead you!

Hope to see you there!
