May 2014 Events

GDG Philippines was a part of the 1st Philippine Techcamp: Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience Building (May 5-6) and the 1st Philippine Techcamp Hackathon (May 9-10). GDG Philippines helped invite technologists and mentors.

We also supported the Open Data's Readysaster: Hack for Resilience Briefing (May 2) and the actual Readysaster Hackathon (May 10-11). During the briefing and the hackathon, GDG Philippines had a talk about Google Maps APIs that they can use in developing their apps. We also had a few hours of consultation wherein participants asked about various Google technologies they are using or are planning to use.

GDG Philippines also organized Google Cloud Platform Days this month. On May 17, participants learned more about Google App Engine and Cloud Datastore while on May 24, the topics were Google Compute Engine and Cloud SQL. There were talks in the morning and workshops in the afternoon.

Next month, GDG Philippines is organizing another Google I/O Extended Manila event. Details about this event (like exact venue and registration) will be announced in the coming days in the Google+ events page and on our Google+ page .
