Google announces Sydney Developer Day event

Google Australia today extended an open invite to developers in Sydney to attend a day-long discussion about building Web applications and advancing the Web as a platform.

Scheduled to be held on 18 June, Google Developer Day will feature presentations from top Google engineers, including Lars Rasmussen, Ben Appleton, Mike Jones, Dmitri Abramov, David Day, and David Glazer.

Attendees also will receive a mix of hands-on advice for building Web applications, as well as opportunities to learn about emerging programming trends.

Sessions at the event will cover: AJAX and JavaScript technologies; APIs and Web tools; social applications of the Web; mobile devices and applications; and Google Maps.

The event follows what is said to have been a successful Google Developer Day at the Australian Technology Park last year, which brought together developers from across the nation.

"In the past year, the web has evolved to be a more open and collaborative platform, and Australian developers have pushed us to expect new and greater things from our experience on the web,” said Alan Noble, head of engineering for Google Australia and New Zealand.

“Our upcoming Developer Day is an opportunity for the Australian developer community to learn about these innovations, to place our Australian developments in a global context, and to continue building a web that is open and useful to developers and users alike," he said.

Google Developer Day will be held at Wharf 8, Sydney on Wednesday, June 18th 2008, and is free to attend. More information about the event is available from Google’s Developer Day 2008 Web site.
