We’d love for you to join us in London for our Google developer day for agencies on 9th September, 2016 at Skills Matter. This is a unique opportunity for agencies focused on Android and iOS development to learn from Google's domain experts and each other.

Who should come?

You will find the event valuable if you're a Product Owner, Senior developer, CEO, Scrum Master or agency Account Manager. The focus will be on agencies that deliver solutions for customers on android and/or iOS. Due to capacity, we are limiting attendees to 5 delegates per agency.

This event is for companies who have expressed an interest in or are existing members of Google Developers Agency program from across the world.

Todd Kerpelman
Developer Advocate, Google 

Todd used to be a halfway-decent game designer, until he tricked Google into hiring him on as a Developer Advocate, focused on the iOS side of Firebase. He figures it's only a matter of time until they figure out he doesn't know what he's talking about, so he's stockpiling snacks in the meantime.
