Google Developer Group (GDG) Fresno strives to bring technology to the Central Valley. We want to build a network of developers and technology enthusiast. With an emphasis on Google and Open Source technologies, GDG Fresno's goals are to teach those interested, how to develop web and mobile applications. GDG Fresno also works with local area high schools, community colleges and universities to push computer science education to new levels. Disclaimer: GDG Fresno is an independent group; our activities and the opinions expressed on this +Page should in no way be linked to Google, the corporation.
We're ready to announce this year's theme and reveal the logo! This meeting will be to get people up to date and spread the word about one of the biggest tech events of the year.
There will be food and drinks and swag!
We organize a Google Plex / Mountain View Tour this year as well. One difference is that we'll go on Friday, so the Google Shop will be open.
This meetup event will gauge the interest for the tour.
We are still in the process of gathering sponsors for the event, but the worst case scenario is $36.50, we expect to push that down significantly, at least by 50%. 3 buses will leave again with 20 person each which 60 headcount cap overall.
You don't need to have any technical proficiency for this event. All ages are welcome. We'll see all the famous buildings and features of the main campus. We'll have Google employee a tour guide, we'll visit the Google Visitor center as well.
The second half of the day we'll visit the Computer History Museum this year the discounted museum ticket price will be built into the Eventbrite ticket price to streamline museum entrance.
The Eventbrite fee contains the lunch (we are planning pizza and we'll consume it on the lawn of the park at the Google Plex), but it does not contain snacks. We'll have opportunity to get snacks at the Museum, at the rest stops at Case de Frutta. Please bring your snacks accordingly. The weather seems to be nice, please bring enough water though.
