As we are well aware, Google has a ton of developer content available online. e.g developer guides, SDKs and videos.
Unfortunately due to internet challenges, a lot of developers in Africa are not able to take full advantage of this. An example of this is when you want to run a code lab and attendees need to download and install the SDK first.
Google Developer Outreach team is piloting a GDG Developer Kit in 3 countries: Kenya, Uganda and Nigeria.
Each kit is made of a pack of 4 DVDs. These DVDs contain the following materials (current as at May 2014).:
- The Google Cloud Platform docs from https://developers.google.com/
cloud, including the SDKs for App Engine
- The entire Android Website : http://developer.android.com
- Videos on Google Cloud Platform Development
Videos on Android Development
Short Videos on Google Developer tips from the Devbyte Series
The DVD packs have already been shipped to our GDG, and ready to be shared. These DVDs are to be handed out to members of the GDGs and they encouraged to copy and share with their colleagues. The content from the DVDs are also meant to be used to facilitate GDG events such as codelabs where everyone needs to install the SDKs or meetups to watch and discuss videos on different technologies and techniques.
If you wish to have a copy of this kit, please fill the form below. We will also be distributing them during the Google I/O Extended next week.
