GDG Organizer Summit 2014

We attended the GDG Organizer Summit from June 23 to 24, 2014 in Googleplex, Mountain View, California. It was attended by around 350 GDG community managers from all over the world who are attending Google I/O 2014.

The first day of the summit was held in the Olympic Tech Talk of Quad 3 Building. There were a few talks in the morning. After lunch, we had a Google [x] talk, an a conversation with Howard Reingold. We then had the lightning talks. My proposed lightning talk was selected and I was one of those who did a lightning talk. I talked about Collaboration with other communities. I was so nervous during the 5-minute talk.

Google talks and GDG Women Diversity Stories from the different GDG Women communities were next in the programme. We then closed the program, had dinner/after-party, and exchanged schwags with one another.

The second day of the summit was held in the Main Campus. We had a group photo before proceeding with two rounds of unconferences. We also had a meeting with the managers from South East Asia. Then, we went to the Google Store to buy some shirts and other stuff. In the afternoon, we had a Google Glass Design Sprint. After the closing talks, we all went to Moscone West to register for Google I/O and get our badges.
