We are interested in learning about technologies we use in our daily lives - Websites, Apps, Smart Things - Phones, Watches, Fitness Trackers, TVs, Speakers, Lights, Locks, Doorbells.
Some of us are also interested in technologies used by businesses, large and small alike - Cloud Computing, Data Science, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT).
And above all, we are interested in making it easier for under-represented groups (Women, Minorities) to join the technology world.
Our talks may feature Google technology (e.g. Android, Google Cloud Platform, Chrome , Android, Angular, Android Wear, Polymer, PWAs), but may also extend to competitive technologies, products and platforms.
It is the best time to be a programmer, a developer, a techie, a geek. "Geek" is the new "Cool"! There's a lot to learn. Let's learn together.
Come Join Us !
