I just came from Google's TechTalk on Google Gadgets & Developer products.
Around two hundred (mostly LAMP and Java; I certainly felt OP being a .NET guy) software devs attended, the first time Google organized a developer event in the Philippines.
They also called for possible mentors for Google's Summer of Code and opportunities for Filipinos to work with Google.
While the talk was all good, it was a wee bit bitin, with only a glimpse of the new technologies. One of the participants was obviously wishing for a deeper discussion of Android.
Nevertheless it was a great opportunity to meet other devs and bloggers, as I got to meet other bloggers (some for the first time) like Aileen (who organized the event), Juned, Markku, AJ, Eugene and Janette.
Congratulations to Aileen to being able to pull this event off in such a short time (1 week?!) and we hope that it will be followed by a deeper, more in-depth dev talk where we can munch, grok, and demo real code.
UPDATE: Aileen posted her blog entry on the TechTalk, complete with videos of the whole talk. 😀
