Curious about about tools that speed up development? Where to find them? What they do and how they can all work together? This event will be a white hat in the bag!
Join us and learn of the above, then get your hands dirty on a workshop session of using these tools as we create a simple app from the tools.

#gdg   #nairobi  in #2014 had a learning year and a turning point on various aspects as seen below (detailed doc here:: http://goo.gl/rUuoei ):
1. Google I/O Extended 2014 - our viewing party was able to follow in real time the events at I/O. This gave the community the opportunity to share, in real time, the new reveals during I/O. 
2. Google I/O 2014 Aftermath - We shared goodies received from San Fransisco to our members including material design materials, and the famous Google Cardboard that accentuates #virtualReality  
3. Helping revamp GDG Kenyatta University and learning the lessons around it.
4. Show and Tell sessions of accomplishments by our members, such as +geoaddress 
5. G|Days Kenya 2014 - this was quite successful with business people and techies having a common meeting ground on the day.
6. #womenTechMakers event (in collaboration with GSAs from University of Nairobi). I led an interactive session at the University of Nairobi, with an audience of 47 women, and 1 man. 
I gave the attendees a challenge, to share a sentence/paragraph/blog online on the theme tags: #create #connect #celebrate on social media, with an aim of women in tech and what they have been able to accomplish.

But the most memorable of them all had to be:

7. Village Hack 1.0 - #VillageHack  is an initiative by members of GDG Nairobi members and Beyonde Labs; a one day long hackathon, with the members coming from the city and campuses therein, but whose local rural village was Lugulu, graced by; local tech leaders and enthusiasts, local telcos representative, and government representatives of ICT in various sectors.

In #2015 , #gdgNairobi  would like to make deeper impact to the tech community. Some of our plans include (detailed doc here: http://goo.gl/hzRLtR ):
1. Android Study Jam - This is the first of (hopefully) many more. With Udacity offering Android Basics introductions, the motivation if quite high amongst the students, as the challenge is global thus making it more interesting. #studyjamnairobi  is at week 6 of the #Udacity  course, with approximately 30 regular students. 10 have already started their final projects, which is quite encouraging, especially seeing beginners sharpen their skill.
2. Village Hack 2.0 - Plans are underway to take #villageHack  to another village in the country, with an aim of encouraging those techies hailing from that village, to come back and impact the society using their acquired tech skills.
3. Products jointly developed by members:- At least 3 not-for-profit products by end of the year (and launched). Members to give ideas
on apps we can build.
4. Google I/O Extended 2015:- Viewing party in the evening (live + playbacks) and Google+ hangout with the attendees.
5. Stand at Nairobi International Trade Fair.- Find best means of application for a stand, have a hackathon running alongside, working with the farmers in attendance, Showcase of application/Ideas/Websites already developed
