Get ready for g|egypt 2.0
By Rania Hadi, MENA Outreach Manager
We had an awesome time at g|egypt last year, and we are excited for version 2.0. Following back-to-back g|days in Dubai and Jordan, we’ll be holding our next g|day in Cairo, Egypt, from December 11-13.
Last year we had great sessions, and this year will be even more packed with all things Google. Each of the three days will have separate tracks, focusing on various audiences: Day 1 is for Business Professionals, Entrepreneurs, & Students; Day 2 is for Webmasters & IT Professionals; and Day 3 is for Developers & Programmers. The sessions will be more advanced this year, so brush up on your AdWords skills, your App Engine coding, and your Google+ knowledge. The more you show, the more likely you’ll get an invitation. We’re even having specific sessions for Android/Mobile application developers this year.
We’ll also be bringing back your favorite Googlers. They’ll be around to interact with you, answer questions, and brainstorm. We’ll have more updates and details to share on our site, but for now, be sure to register. We have a limited number of seats so the stronger your application, the more likely you are to receive a spot at g|egypt 2.0. We’ll send invitations to those who are accepted by December 1st, 2011.
If you still have doubts, check out recent g|uae & g|jordan 2.0 photos for a sneak peek of the fun that awaits!
