I received an invitation from Google in the mail today. No, not for an interview, but for a new event they are sponsoring called "Google Developer Day". It will be held simultaneously in 10 cities around the globe. Here's a copy:

In recent months, many of us on Google's developer teams have spent a lot of time pondering how we can bring our teams and the developer community closer together.  We wanted to share our knowledge as well as learn from all of you who are out there expanding the boundaries of web development.

Our conclusion was simple: get everyone in one room. But in our expanding and ever-more global community, there's no one single place or time zone that could hold us all. So we're pleased today to invite you to join us on May 31st, 2007 for a Google Developer Day that will take place in ten locations around the world: 
  • Mountain View, California
  • Sao Paulo, Brazil
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Paris, France
  • Madrid, Spain
  • Hamburg, Germany
  • Moscow, Russia
  • Tokyo, Japan
  • Sydney, Australia
  • Beijing, China
You can learn more about the event, and RSVP, here:

There are a limited number of spots available, so please let us know soon if you'll be able to make it. We're looking forward to meeting all of you.

Sincerely,
Google Developer Day Team
The agenda looks slightly different at each site but in general you can expect some good sessions on Google Maps, GData, Gadgets, the Google Web Toolkit, and other developer initiatives.

  • Good idea. They know they need devs to survive.

    I blogged on this today http://notaprguy.wordpress.com/ but the short version is that Google has some big advantages in software services but some big weaknesses in that they don't have a client or server side platform. Other companies like Adobe (Flash/Flex) and Microsoft (Windows/.NET) do have those platforms and they are bigger assets that most think. Google wins in a pure SaaS world but do we really want that world? I don't. It'll be interesting to see how developers use Google. Will they incorproate Google services into their Windows, Mac and Web apps build on other platforms?
