I am so embarrassed that a german professor is that narrow-minded that she can not distinguish between male indians and criminals.

Dear Annette Beck-Sickinger ( https://plus.google.com/115605958505047984601 ) india has 1,252 Million citizens. Approximately the half of the are male. Do you really think they are all rapists? 

Would you like to be punished for crimes that have been committed by some random german felonies?

Embarrassing, unfortunately I am not the least bit surprised. 
These kind of things pop up all over the place at the moment, it seems. Tragic!

The new Technology Radar is out and as always worth reading it.

There is one term emerging in the IT-world that is also beeing mentioned in the report: Datensparsamkeit which is a term that is actually taken from the german privicy legislation.

While we are moving more and more data into the cloud, this is also a growing matter and I am quit happy that this term also found its way to the Technology Radar. 

#datensparsamkeit  
The Technology Radar is a document that sets out the changes we think are interesting in software development.

Hi Friends!

Sorry that you haven't heard too much from my since the DevFest. I was quit busy with my business affairs.

I would like to thank you for your awesome commitment which made this not only our first DevFest but a really special event. 

Thank you to +Jens Hauke  and +Johan Bové  who took care for the website and started the preparations for the DevFest during my summer holidays. And who where also a reliable partners when it came to things like preparing the location and fiddling around with the sound equipment.

+Johan Bové  this was the second major event in this year, where you took a special role by supporting the GDG Community in Düsseldorf. You’ve be also my Co-Organizer at the Dart Flight School earlier this year. Thank you for your continuous support!

Thank you to +Resul Kocyigit who also prepared a vast part of the DevFest and even sourced his family for the catering and delivery. Also a very special thank you to Resul's Mama for preparing these delicious appetizers which also ended up the lunch boxes of my children ;-)

Another special thanks goes to +Nana Lohmanns  who saved an essential part of the DevFest: Coffee and Beamer! When we were preparing the location one evening before the DevFest, we realized that people might like to drink coffee and that a beamer would also come handy since the one that we had where broken! Out of my desperation I called Nana who didn't even let me finish my explanation and promised to bring in a beamer and a coffee machine! 

I think a nice souvenir of our community event are the cups and the badges that +Alex Hepting  prepared for us and who took this very time consuming and important task from my shoulders! Thank you Alex!

Thank you to +Manuela Schaaf who has provided the badges and took care for the registration. Also thank you for encouraging your colleagues to hold talks at the devfest and organizing so much in the background! You’ve been a great help and I could hardly imagine this Devfest without you!

I hope you all have seen the stunning pictures that +Ann-Katrin B-m has taken. I was asked if we have contracted a professional photographer for this event! I was proud to answer that these pictures are also an outcome from our community here in Düsseldorf! Thank you Ann-Katrin!

Thank you to +Brian Louis Ramirez and +Dennis Prieß  for the stunning presentation about your collaboration between designers and developers at Grandcentrix. This topic was very important to me because user experience is an important and also exciting topic and I hope we will be hearing more of you guys in the future!

Thank you to +Georg Zweschper  for your talk about Machine Learning. This was the point where I truly regretted that we had two tracks and I could listen to just one talk at a time. I hope you’ll continue the series about your domain soon!

The same applies to +Frederik Schweiger. I have read your slides (31!) about android wear. Very detailed and very professional styled. I hope I’ll get the chance to attend another talk of you soon! Thank you for contributing to the DevFest!

+Nabil Ben Said you’ve made the most of the Android TV that I’ve brought from this years Google I/O. I also only had the chance to read your slides since we’ve been in concurrent talks. I hope there will be coming more like this next year! Also a big thank you that you’ve showed up and helped preparing the location the night before the DevFest!

Thank you to +Pascal Welsch for you talk about Material Design. I think Material Design is an exciting topic that will hit us in nearly all fields of our work. Very exciting talk as always. Thank you for your ongoing contribution to the GDG Community, not only at the Devfest but also with your talks at our Meetups!

I think it would be a good idea to dedicate an own track to +Dittmar Steiner at the next Devfest. I that were like three or more hours of very passionate presentations about Microservices, Docker and Google Go. Your talk inspired me to wrap my brain around Docker for the last three weeks and you’ve probably seeded a completely new series of talks ;-). Thank you for participating since 5 years at the GDG (formerly known as GTUG) Düsseldorf!!

It is hard to believe that someone is so dedicated to our community that he travels nearly every month 240 km (150 miles) to attend, participate and contribute to the GDG Düsseldorf. Whenever there is a meetup or major event, I think of +Wolfram Rittmeyer  who is exactly doing all this and I feel like I have to give all to make the events worth it. Thank you Wolfram for being a part of the GDG Düsseldorf and Thank you for your talk and support at the DevFest!

A very exciting part of the DevFest was the gradle workshop! Gradle is an emerging tool that becomes more and more important for developers no matter if it’s mobile, Desktop or whatever. I am very grateful to +Nenad Natošević who has hold a very eloquent appetizer talk and offered a workshop during the Devfest. There were less participants at the workshop than we expected but I think this was not because of the workshop but more because of our stuffed program and the concurrent talks. Nevertheless I would like to stick to this concept but less in competition to multiple tracks but more in a dedicated time slot. Thank you for spending your time and offering this workshop!!

Thank you to +Markus Seifarth for caring for the catering. It was a relief that you took over this part. I also got the promised receipts for the bookkeeping. 

This was the very first DevFest in Düsseldorf. I was very excited about how this will turn out and I am more that happy about how it all went. We’ve learned some lessons like we have to calc about 40% no-showers. However this seems to be the exact average like all the other DevFests in Germany experienced. Next time we’ll know this number and will deal with it.

We could not have organized this DevFest without the help from outside. Therefore a big thank you to +Manuela Schaaf and our Sponsors, Google and Grandcentrix. 

+grandcentrix has supported our event financially and by priceless manpower! Thank you Grandcentrix!!

Thank you to +Maxim Mai who traveled from Dublin to Germany for holding his stunning talk about App Distribution and Revenue Models at our DevFest! You’ve been a real headliner to our Event!

+Dirk Primbs and +Katharina Lindenthal from Google have introduced us to Maxim Mai and helped to bring him to Düsseldorf. We don’t take it as given that you send us a Speaker to a comparatively small event like ours. Thank you for supporting us with nearly everything we need to run the GDG!!

Thank you to Kath and Dirk for having Resul und me in Munich last weekend and giving us these valuable trainings and making organizinging the GDG a real joy!!

I’d like to point out that the GDG is not driven by some faceless enterprise but supported by people who are on the other side of the world and yet really caring for our local concerns. +Van Riper and +Adriana Cerundolo are spending a vast amount of their time by traveling around the world to help the GDG’s in all parts of their work. I am running the GDG as an organizer since 2011 and whenever I’ve asked for help, I got it from them. Thank you for your priceless support Andrian and Van!!

Thank you to everybody how is making the GDG such a great institution!

With our tonights event we are closing a very successful year for the GDG Düsseldorf and I wish those of you that I am not going to see tonight a merry christmas and a happy new year 2015!

The next meeup in March will be special: 

Start‐ups meet Google:
According to statistics approximately half of small business start‐ups fails during the first five years.
Google is on a mission to improve those statistics and to support start‐ups particularly in the early
stages. In 2012 Google launched Google for Entrepreneurs, an initiative, which is basically the
umbrella for several dozen programs, partnerships, accelerators, incubator programs and products
around the world that support emerging entrepreneurs. Google for Entrepreneurs is supported by
three main pillars: Google’s partnerships with entrepreneurial organizations, programs the company
is sponsoring or supporting more directly and Google products that could be advantageous to
fledgling startups.
What are Google´s goals and how can start‐ups outside Silicon Valley in Germany benefit from them?
In this session you will receive an overview about Google´s start‐up entrepreneur programs and
initiatives including “insider” stories of the first Google Launchpad in Berlin.
 
Speaker: Dr. Tatiana Chapovalova
Tatiana is an entrepreneur, founder of Skillndeal and alumni of Google Lanchpad.  She combines iron
grip with positive attitude and contagious humor. She is a digital native and a talent for building
relationships. Tatiana has a long‐time consulting and project leading experience at giant industry
companies. For the last 5years she had been working as a senior industry manager and a business
advisor at one of the most prominent consulting companies, directing large‐scale projects. Tatiana
designed corporate strategies for her customers and optimized processes.

Story
Introduction

Randy was fascinated about computer science ever since. At the age of ten he started writing his first programs in Basic on his C64. Unfortunately he had to write these programs very often because he couldn’t convince his father to buy a datasette and so his programs vanished every time his mother pulled the plug to get him to bed.

In 1993 Randy got access to the data centre at the faculty for computer science at the university of Wuppertal and got in touch with telnet, FTP, Gopher and the World Wide Web which wasn’t that wide these days as most people know it today.


A few years later in 1995 Randy founded SCARATEC as one of the first companies in germany dedicated to internet programming.

Today Randy is basically focused Software Architecture and Software Development. His favorite Language is Java EE on Linux operating systems. In his toolbox Randy always carries: git, gradle, IntelliJ IDEA, Google Web Toolkit, Dart and a grml usb-stick to turn everything that crosses his way to decent linux box.

The Google Developer Group Düsseldorf is a special baby of Randy. In 2011 he got the first time in touch with the Google Community. The warm welcome of the community and fascination about technology made him stay and later become organizer of the GDG in Düsseldorf.
