JUG-AFRICA at Googleplex in Mountain View !!

Last January I was invited by Google at Googleplex in Mountain View to meet with managers from Developer Relations Team to discuss about our annual event (JCertif 2011) and possible synergies between JUG-AFRICA and Google G-AFRICA. It was a great meeting with concrete collaboration agenda. Here is a summary :
Google Outreach ef
forts in Africa
  • University courses (we think Google should give this opportunity to local experts);
  • Local user groups;
  • Technology barcamps;
  • Competitions and coding challenges.
Working Together Possibilities (JUG-AFRICA - Google AFRICA)
  • work together on University talks;
  • Professional groups: look at joint meetings on Android, App Engine, GWT.
Concrete Next Steps (started!)
  • Share calendar of future JUG-Africa events (JUG-Meeting) with G-AFRICA manager;
  • Look for ways to collaborate on some of those events;
  • Identify key Java community members that we can get more involved;
  • Work together on University outreach.
We have conclude the day with a lunch that was disrupted a little bit by a fire alrme at the Googleplex' main cafeteria. Miam! miam!
Thanks Van Reper.
