What we're about

Greetings,

GDG Boston Android is all about developing on the Android Platform. We are a group of developers that foster learning of Google’s developer technologies.

We are interesting in app development, learning about internals, exploring new designs, delving into implementation details, playing with tools, discussing architecture.

We are open to all. We love to share what we know. Likewise, we want you also share your knowledge with the community.

Our meetings take place at various locations in Cambridge and Boston. Occasionally, we will try to gather in the suburbs.

Contact any one of our organizers for an opportunity to share your expertise with the Android community in Boston Area.

Disclaimer: GDG Boston Android 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, visit https://developers.google.com/groups/

Informal Android Developer Meetup (Boston Edition)

Online event

Android developers get together for informal discussion of mobile technologies. Everyone is welcome, all interests and skill levels. Stop by to talk about the mobile industry, debug some Android code, or hang out with other techies and coders. (When things open and we add Face to Face interactions back into the City of Boston...) This is Jaho's newest Back Bay location. Find us in the private event room, behind the glass door near the entrance. The cafe has free WiFi along with food and a coffee and a wine bar. You can bring a laptop and work on code. I will have mine! See you there! If you are driving, there is an after hours $10 parking deal around the corner on Dartmouth Street in the Tent City lot. The location is easily reached on the Green line using the Copley Square or Hynes Convention Center stops.

From zero to app: live-coding Firebase & StackBlitz - Frank van Puffelen @Google

Hello Firebase enthusiasts, Puf will take you from zero to app... We are live-coding with Firebase and StackBlitz on the web. Getting started with web development has never been easier. In this talk Frank will live code two complete web apps from scratch, without copying/pasting any snippets. Both apps will be built on StackBlitz and will use Firebase for their back-end services. Frank (or Puf) is an engineer for Firebase at Google. He helps developers build extraordinary apps that use Firebase as their back-end. If you've ever asked a Firebase question on StackOverflow, you've probably met Frank already.
