GDG Singapore Meet-ups Forecast for 2014

GDG Singapore will be 5 years this year and as part of growing up, we will focus on brining fewer higher-impact developer content from speakers who have hands-on experience with Google products. Gradually this will replace our introduction-style meet-ups.

We plan to conduct a minimum of 7 events in this calendar year as per the following list.

A. 4x bigger developer-focused meet-ups
B. 1x GDG DevFest
C. 1x Google I/O Extended
D. 1x Special event - GDG Singapore 5th year anniversary
