Google Developer Group is Open for all including students, newbies, developers and anyone for all who are interested in Google technologies. It is Gujarat, India based open group for people who are interested in Google’s developer technology; everything from the Android and App Engine platforms, to product APIs like the YouTube API and the Google Calendar API, to initiatives like OpenSocial.
They plan regular meetup/events to discuss, share experience, share and get knowledge amongst the group. Anyone can request for delivering the talk and for sharing their expertise, in particular, technology. I think this is very helpful to students as well technology persons to meet each other and get knowledge about trending technologies.

The event was so much wonderful because of GDGAhmedabad teams’ day night effort to organize the venue, calling speakers, website, invitations, gifts, banners, photography, sponsors, social media sharing and so much hard work which I can’t explain. But yes, their hard work and team tuning are amazing and fabulous.
In the team, I would like to say its GDG Ahmedabad family, is full of energetic persons. Paresh Mayani, Dhrumil Shah, Dhruva Shashtri, Vaibhavi Desai, Pratik Patel are backbone of it and without their hard work, this community can’t grow. I am feeling proud to say I am part of that family.
I remember when I first time met @Paresh Mayani, I found him very passionate about Android and I was really impressed by his knowledge regarding technology. He every time encourages me to participate and writing the blog. He gave me previously chance to speak on “Explore Marshmallow : Android App Permission” at the regular event at @LetsNurture. I am very much thankful to this community that they give me a chance to present myself on the stage of DevFest. My topic was “Demystify Android Permission” and delivered a speech in such a big and amazing event.
At last, I would like to say that just get participate in such grant event. You will get 3 benefits. First, you will get knowledge free of cost, you will meet awesome people and Third, you will get free food whole day :D.
