The Silicon Valley Google Technology User Group meets on the first Wednesday of the month at the GooglePlex in Mountain View. The typical meeting format is registration and light dinner fare between 6:00 and 7:00pm. The meeting itself starts with general announcements at 7:00pm. A technical presentation or demonstration of one particular Google Technology from 7:15 to 8:15pm. We will end each meeting with breakout sessions from 8:30 to 9:30pm. The number of breakout sessions and the topics for each one will be determined by event attendees.
Our meetings will always be free and open to the general public. However, we may have to limit attendance based on interest and the size of our meeting space. In order to find out early about upcoming events, we recommend you join our Google Group which will be used primarily to announce our events. When an advance RSVP is required, this information will be part of the group announcements.
In addition, we maintain a calendar with the planned event dates for the next year called out. As topics and presenters are finalized, this calendar is updated accordingly. When the topic involves Java Technology, we will sometimes co-host a joint meeting with the Silicon Valley Web Developer JUG (Java User Group) like we did for our Google Web Toolkit inaugural meeting on January 15th, 2008.
