Google Technology User Group - Stockholm, Sweden




OK, so summer is over. The spring became a sprint for me with customer and voluntary projects crowding me from all sides, a little conference to arrange and a new major customer to get accustomed to.

In the middle of all this, I still tried to find some worthwhile monthly communal activity, maybe not so far-out as functional alcoholics, but still good fun.

So while I was gearing up this idea, trying to flesh it out, suddenly Google, of all people, sprung the excellent idea of starting Google Technology User Groups, GTUGs for short. I grabbed the Stockholm spot within minutes, naturally :)

If you're interested in GTUGs but happen to live far from Stockholm, Sweden, I've heard that there are some oher cities around the world, where GTUGs have ben known to form, go find one for yourself, or better yet, start your own.

Starting a GTUG doesn't mean that you have to becoma part of Google, or even know anyone who works there, it's basically a worldwide coders club, where we can share each others presentations, get some T-shirts or other schwag, if we're lucky, and teach each other about Google related APIs and other technologies.

Our first meeting will be the 3/9, graciously hosted at Ottoboni at Skanstull in Stockholm. The homepage for the GTUG is here, and we currently have speaker for OpenSocial and getting started on Android development.

If you are interested in coming, please comment on this post, so we know how many people to arrange for. Thx!!
[Update: There's now also a LinkedIn group for those of you who use it: http://events.linkedin.com/Google-Technology-User-Group-Stockholm/pub/105365]

I'll see you there :)

Cheers,
PS
