What we're about

Do you use Google technologies in your work, studies or personal projects? Are you interested in learning more about them? Want to connect with other developers in person? Then GDG (Google Developer Group) Los Angeles welcomes you to attend one of our upcoming meetings! We're working on a roster of monthly events, including LA's first-ever Google I/O Extended viewing event, where you can watch live sessions from Google I/O with other developers right here in Southern California. Our regular meetings will feature talks and guest speakers discussing APIs and platforms such as Android, Chrome, Google Maps and Earth, Google TV, App Engine, the Google Prediction API, Dart, Google Web Toolkit and Google+. And sometimes we'll throw in other developer-oriented demos, interaction, special guests or games just for fun. Whatever the topic, it will be a great opportunity to meet, talk and make friends with LA-area developers who are using Google technologies to create interesting and innovative projects. Please note: GDG Los Angeles is a group of developers in the Los Angeles area that is independently organized by individuals, and is not a part of Google, Inc.

Networking Happy Hour!

Needs a location

Let's get together and discuss what we've all been up to. We want to know what technology you're interested in and what's new with everyone.

This is the second one, the first one was great. Join us if you can!

This is cross posted to multiple LA GDG Chapters.
