Calling all JavaScript developers: Hack the Day Away with Google

On Friday, February 29th, Google will be holding a developer hackathon to get you started on our JavaScript APIs. We will be doing short introductions of the APIs and then breaking up into groups for coding and camaraderie. There will be plenty of Google engineers present to ask questions and get help from. Food will be provided and there will be prizes.

The event is open to anyone in the community that wants to learn about some Google API's, do some coding, or ask some questions. So please bring your laptops and come hang out at Google.

We'll be covering the following APIs:
The event will be held in two sessions, the first from 2:00PM - 5:30PM and another from 6:00PM - 10:00PM. You are welcome to stay for both.

Hope to see you there!


  1. You should do one of these in NYC.

  2. In a virtual world, I am surprised that Google would not offer these over the web. Of course I can also see how this could create allot more administrivia.

  3. I agree with Rob. You should TOTALLY do these in NYC.

  4. Would be nice to do a web conference for those of us who are not in CA or NYC.

  5. please post the video recording (I assume that the sessions will be recorded) later.

  6. Add Chicago to the list. Many surrounding cities from WI, MI and IN would be coming in for an event.

  7. Definitely need one in RTP North Carolina :)

  8. Wow, you have this going on in a single physical location only? What are you, Yahoo?? C'mon, guys. Get a clue!

  9. We (Nearsot) would be happy to co-sponsor one of these sessions in Hermosillo, Mexico (south of Tucson).

    Who should I contact?

  10. Please take the session in India too.May be in mumbai,bangalore hyderabad or Kolkata.But please Conduct in india also

  11. Please do it in NYC, we can attend.

  12. The event was entertaining, though I unfortunately didn't get any bright ideas for something to code until it was too late to implement it in time, oh well, hopefully there will be a next time.
