Startup Weekend + GDG
Google Technology User Groups and Startup Weekend are joining forces to help developers and entrepreneurs become more successful!
By harnessing experts from local GDGs, Pre-Startup Weekend bootcamps will focus on teaching people about Google technologies like AdSense, AppEngine, Maps, and different Google APIs that can help them work faster and be more productive during their Startup Weekend project.
During a Startup Weekend there isn't a lot of time for attendees to learn and implement new technologies. By leveraging experienced and knowledgeable members to teach Startup Weekend attendees, we can teach developers new technologies, platforms, services, or APIs.
What can we expect from the Bootcamp?
During the bootcamp, we will be covering everything you will need to survive the Weekend. Talking points include:
- Intro: What happens in SWM? What's the agenda? Is there a schedule we should follow?
- Pitching: What's it like? Should I pitch? What should I have in my 60 second pitch? What should I include in the final Sunday pitch?
- Teamwork: How are teams formed? If my idea isn't picked, should I leave or join another team? Team culture starts on day one. Don't screw it up.
- Google Technologies: AdSense, HowToGoMo, Maps
Please bring your laptops, usb/wifi internet sticks and extension cords.
