Google Developer Group (GDG) Dublin for Partnership

GDG Dublin is one of the many developer groups in Dublin. 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.

About Coding Grace

Coding Grace are a group of developers based in Ireland who love to code and do other geeky and not necessarily crafty activities. Some of us code full-time, or just for fun (or both). We have people who are part of other technical user groups such as Dublin ALT.NET, GameCraft, Python Ireland, Ruby Ireland and more…
We provide female-friendly workshops and events in an environment for developers and aspiring developers mentored by majority female instructors.
We aim to provide a support network for people from all backgrounds and hope our outreach will help bring those who are interested in code development together and learn from one another.
