Slowly but surely all the nice little features from the ‘old’ maps are arriving in the new Google Maps as well.

Other additions I noticed not too long ago: the terrain layer is back, as well as a button to "My Custom Maps" (the latter apparently not fully integrated yet since it partially links back to the old maps experience).

It took three months for "The Internship" to get across the ocean -- it should have taken the plane, would be much faster! Still, I'm looking forward to seeing it with the +GDG Aachen. Let's see how the movie measures up to a real internship at Google ;-)
In a few days, “The Internship” (German title: “”), a film depicting Vince Vaughn’s and Owen Wilson’s journey as interns at Google is finally coming to German cinemas. The GDG Aachen will be going to one of the first screenings on Friday and we’re inviting you to join us!

We will meet at 18:45 on Friday, September 27 in the Cineplex Aachen. After the film we will be going to a nearby venue where we can discuss internships at Google, news in the Google Developer world or just about anything you want. Tickets for the movie are priced at 9€.

Please RSVP to the event as soon as possible so that we can make sure to reserve enough tickets at (just RSVPing on the G+ event is not enough).

See you on Friday!

You'll see me towards the end of the movie in front of the G-bus. :D

#gdg   #flydart  
Dart is a new language for scalable web app engineering. It has been recently released in version 1.0 and is now ready for production. All modern browsers (both desktop and mobile) can run Dart web apps, thanks to the Dart-to-JavaScript compiler.

The Google Developer Group Aachen is hosting the Dart Flight School with a free one-day-codelab and hackathon for you to take off with Dart! It's time to earn your web development wings.

We start on February 22nd at 10am. Prerequisites are a Laptop with a working Dart-Editor or Intellij IDEA with dart-support. Learn more here:

Please note that we try to avoid spending time on installing IDE etc. during the event. So please try to get it up and running prior to the event. Just in case you have any trouble installing, please contact us in advance, we strive to give you support. If it still don't work, please check-in at the venue at 9am so that we can give you support on site.

GDG Meetup - Gründerwoche Edition
GDG Aachen meets Microsoft

G+ Event:
On November 21, 6pm

1. Talk by guests from the US: 
“Windows Telemetry: improving software quality and collecting usage data on a worldwide scale”

Microsoft and Windows use telemetry collected from over a billion machines worldwide to improve software quality and to design new features. This talk explores the challenges when managing these data streams and how Microsoft uses telemetry to improve reliability, performance, and usability of both the operating system as well as applications.

About the speaker: Stephan Doll is a development lead at Microsoft and works on telemetry and recovery features. He previously worked both in big (IBM) and small startup companies, working on device and file system drivers for both Windows and Solaris.

2. Talk:
Climbing “Mount JS”: Challenges and Lessons Learned in Developing a Single-Page App

GeoSurfen, a location based game, was developed by bitstars over the last year. As key element a Web-Editor was implemented as a Single-Page App. In this talk, the speaker will briefly introduce you to the used libraries and tools, and recap some of the major challenges in developing such a JavaScript application.

Philip Martzok is a software developer working at bitstars. During the last year, he engaged intensively with web development and became a JavaScript enthusiast. He is currently doing his master in computer science and founding a start-up with some colleagues.

Both talks will be in English

Full-time Student and Developer
I'm currently studying computer sciences at RWTH Aachen University (Germany) and have a great interest in everything technology related! In my studies, I'm currently focussing my elective courses around the area of Artificial Intelligence as well as Pattern Recognition and Language Processing.

During Summer 2012 I've interned at the awesome Google+ Stream Team in Mountain View, where I was working on various new features and enhancements, such as beautiful new Checkin Posts. It was a fantastic time and I'm hoping to come back as soon as possible.

I love using Google services. From a developer's point of view especially the Google+ platform and the Google Maps API. If you're developing applications with the Maps API yourself, check out my GitHub repository where I share useful scripts that I created over time. 

If you have questions related to Google+ development, I recommend to ask your question in the official Google+ Developers community. I follow it constantly and try to answer questions as good as I can. But what's more important: many awesome Googlers read and react to your questions there, too!

When not being busy with studying, I'm writing all sorts of small applications. In particular, I developed the following two Chrome Extensions which will help enhancing your Google+ Experience:
The extensions are completely free and feedback is always welcome!
