Exclusive: Mass Google Technology User Group – An introduction

Monika Adamczyk is the co-founder of Massachusetts User Group – Mass GTUG (Google Technology User Groups). We have been in touch with her over the last couple of months and recently did an interview to find out what the group was up to.

The Google Technology Groups are spread all over the world. And we are lucky to have one right here in Massachusetts.The Mass GTUG meets atleast once a month to talk about various developer projects. They had a meeting last weekend where they worked with CrisisCamp to design relief projects for Haiti. And they are also meeting on February 3rd, 2010 to discuss new features of GWT 2.0.

They are ” user groups for people who are interested in Google’s developer technology; everything from the Android and App Engine platforms, to product APIs like the YouTube API and the Google Calendar API, to initiatives like OpenSocial.” The Mass GTUG formed in summer 2009. It is a platform that enables Google enthusiasts to come together and find out more about Google technology, to work on development projects and discuss technical material. Most of the people who are part of these groups work within technology.
