GDG Dublin (Google Developer Group) meets on the last Tuesday of the month in Google HQ in Dublin.
The typical meeting format is a 18:30 kick-off with some food, followed by talks and Q&A until around 21:00.
The group has a broad scope, covering issues from cloud to mobile and everything in between; while the group does have some bias towards the many innovative technologies developed by Google, the group is generally very open - this manifests in terms of interest in alternative and complementary technologies to those offered by Google, technologies which are not Google specific (eg HTML5) and engaging with other companies. The group also organises hackathons, codelabs & workshop from time to time.
The group's activities are generally free and all are welcome.
