Google Developers Groups (GDGs) are for developers who are interested in Google's developer technology; everything from the Android, App Engine, and Google Chrome platforms, to product APIs like the Maps API, YouTube API and Google Calendar API.
A GDG can take many forms -- from just a few people getting together to watch Google's latest video, to large gatherings with demos and tech talks, to events like code sprints and hackathons. However, at the core, GDGs are focused on developers and technical content, and the core audience should be developers.
While helping the community we noticed an unfulfilled need for Android developers, both in knowledge and workforce. This need lead us to found the Israeli Android Association. Its main goal is to provide enough knowledge to everyone, from beginners to experts, as well as creating a common and familiar ground for start-ups to get good recommandations about Android developers.
I co-founded GDG Herzeliya and The Israeli Android Association in 2011. I produce medium scale events (±200 people) and hackathons, help share the knowledge in different technologies with the entire Israeli developers community and provide mentorship to many emerging start-ups and individuals.
