GDG Melbourne is for anyone interested in developing and learning about Android and other exciting Google related technologies such as Kotlin, Java, Flutter, Firebase, Machine Learning, VR & AR, Google Assistant, Wearables and IOT
Regardless of your skill level or experience, it's a fun and open environment, so we'd love to have you come along!
• Monthly Meetups - We hold monthly meetups in the Melbourne CBD, on the last Wednesday of each month. We typically have two lightning talks coupled with a longer presentation. Each meetup also includes time to talk and network, a summary of new software and hardware releases, and a time for local developers who have shipped new products to introduce them to the community. Catering is provided.
• Hack Nights - Hack night is hosted in a professional environment to allow you to work on your own project. Experts, colleagues and peers are on hand to help you out with problems and to collaborate on projects.
• Special events - Typically one-off events such as a Google I/O Extended (a recap of the event and announcements), free training sessions, DevFests, Christmas parties, etc.

The March Meetup is a BIG one we have 4 talks! To fit in all the content we are going to open doors at 5:30 so don't be late. For this month we have:
• Main Talks:
Hong Yew – "Building your own Google assistant"
Mark Ng - "Live Data 2"
• Lightning Talks:
Troy Bebee – "Developing on the Pixelbook - a quick guide to being productive"
Amanda Woo – "The Dos and Don’ts of Data"
Doors open just before 5:30pm, and talks will kickoff at 6:00pm.
We are trying something different this month: we are not opening RSVPs until a week before the event. We are finding more than 60% of people who have RSVP'd are not turning up which means other people miss out! Hopefully with an RSVP closer to the date everyone will have a better idea of their plans!
RSVPs Open: Wednesday, March 20,[masked]:00 PM
If you RSVP Yes – Please arrive before 5:50pm, or your spot may be given to a waitlisted attendee.
If you are on the waitlist – We cannot guarantee you a spot, but if you are interested in attending we will let in people on the waitlist after 5:50 in limited numbers. Please be at the venue before 5:50.
Please note we have a hard cut off on the number of attendees due to venue capacity—get there early!
Doors close at 6:00pm.
