4 down, 5 to go

Well, the Wave 1 Google Developer Days
are over, and the Wave 2 GDDs began today in Bangalore, India.

We've had a great time meeting developers across Europe, and here are some highlights.

London: Playlist of all the sessionsand Presentation site
Paris: Presentation site and videos on the GoogleFrance YouTube Channel
Munich: Presentation site and playlist on the GoogleDeutschland YouTube Channel
Spain: Wrap-up video and all videos on the GoogleEspana Channel

There's a mix of content there. Let us know which format you like best.

They were all incredible in their own way.
  • London was based in Wembley Stadium, which was just insane, and had inflatable igloos.
  • France in an architectural school (with a few lessons still going on!), which made the codelabs fun.
  • Munich was in a massive conference hall, and had lots of cool lego built and a massive cushion fort..
  • Spain was in a themepark, so some sessions were in the ghost train.

All in all, not at all what I expected, but much more than I had hoped for. I met some great people, and even learnt some new things myself, when they let me out of the codelabs ; )

Most importantly, I built a Google Site around the OpenSocial codelab, so if you missed out, or just want a refresher, check out http://sites.google.com/site/opensocialcodelab

As always, if you have any thoughts, please leave them in the comments.

Hope you're doing well
