Before the main stream press get hold of this info I thought I’d share it with you fellow Web AddiCT(s); Google is planning a 2-day program themed Growing Local, Going Global with G-South Africa to be held in Camps Bay at The bay Hotel on the 8th and 9th of November 2010.
Day 1 – 8 November 2010 will be focused on Computer Science students wrt using Google developer tools to push the boundaries of web applications. Google engineers and web development leaders will guide you through a full day of in-depth sessions, including hands-on code labs dedicated to cutting edge web and mobile technologies.
The day is also about building community. We’ve scheduled plenty of time for guests to meet other developers, discuss ideas, and share what you’ve been working on.
The day will be divided into two tracks: a green track for junior developers, and a blue track for those with more experience. They’ve also created a special yellow track for university professors and faculty, which will consist of breakout sessions throughout the day.View the full agenda.
