Google has announced a worldwide event, Google Developer Day 2007.
There will be some good Ajax content around the various Google APIs and services (GWT, GData APIs, Gadgets, etc), but best of all, you will be able to mingle with other users and Google developers themselves. If you want to bug the guys who built Google Maps, just hunt them down :).
Google Developer Day will take place at Google offices and offsite locations in Mountain View, Sao Paulo, Madrid, London, Paris, Hamburg, Moscow, Beijing, Tokyo and Sydney. The proceedings will begin in Sydney on May 31, 9 a.m. AEST and end 27 hours later in Mountain View on May 31, 7 p.m. PDT.
Google engineers and product experts at each location will lead sessions in topic areas such as, “Developing with Geo: Google Maps, Google Earth and SketchUp,” “Tools for Better Web Development: The Google Web Toolkit, Open Source and Other Developer Initiatives” and “Mashups and More: AJAX, Google Gadgets and the Google Data APIs.”
Confirmed presenters include:
- Guido Van Rossum, Google software engineer and creator of the Python programming language (Beijing)
- Chris DiBona, Google open source programs manager (London)
- Mark Stahl, Google data APIs tech lead (Madrid)
- Bruce Johnson and Joel Webber, co-creators of the Google Web Toolkit (Mountain View)
