SG-GTUG first meetup

On Saturday 29 August the Singapore Google Technology User Group or SG-GTUG (Facebook link) will be holding its first kick-off meeting. We plan to hold monthly meetups to talk about all technologies related to Google. The theme for the 1st meeting is Google Web Toolkit and Google App Engine.

So what can you expect on the day? Apart from listening to first-hand experiences of people already using these two technologies, we have also lined up 2 demos where you will see real-life applications in action.
