MORE THAN JUST A MEETUP

We are the Melbourne chapter of the global Google Developer Group (GDG) program

The main event

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. It also includes time to talk and networking opportunities, a summary of new software and hardware releases from local experts, and time to announce anything new you have shipped this month.

Drinks, cold beer, and pizza are provided!

Hack nights

Want to hack on code with your fellow geeks?  Together with the Cocoaheads iOS meetup we are running a series of hack nights.  Get help and mentor others.  Bring your laptop with something to work on.

The hack nights are an all ages, alchol free event run in a professional enviroment.  Dinner is provided.

Conferences

After something bigger?  Each year we run an affordable day long devfest conference!  We pull in intersate and international experts to present.  Its like our meetups, but supersized!

We typically have multiple streams of content covering Google related topics such as Android, Cloud, IOT, and Web, plus community related topics.

Special events

We also hold special events, such as a Google IO recap, free training session, Christmas parties, etc.

Community

We provide a home for likeminded people to grow.  Its all about the community: finding people that speak your language, who are excited to learn.  Apart from the networking opportunities at events we maintain a vibrant slack channel.

If you are just writing your first line of code, or if you have been hacking Android since 1.0, we are the place for you.
