Google Developer Days is right around the corner and we have some
exciting news!

You’re hearing it from us first, your local GTUG organizers!
The newest in developer showcases is coming to Google Developer Days:
Open Call 2011!

Partnering with the Google Developer Days organizers, we wanted to
give you a way to really show your peer developers what you’re made
of.  So for 2011, Google and GTUGs are inviting our most passionate
developers to participate in Open Call for Google Developer Day for a
chance to showcase your work alongside your peers from eight GDD
countries around the world.

Just as a reminder, there will be a standard application process where
every developer will be required to complete a short questionnaire and
optional Developer Quiz.

This year’s Open Call challenges will focus on the Android ADK and
HTML5 platforms, while giving you a chance to make Germany proud!  No
matter which challenge you choose, your submission must reflect our
regional culture,  be this through music, creative imagery, lighting
or colors--the opportunities are endless!

A panel of experienced german developers hand-picked by us will select
10 submissions from each of the challenges to be featured online and
in-person at our Google Developer Day on 19th of November.  Open Call
is an optional supplement to your GDD registration, though you might
get extra credit for participating.  In many cases, this will also
mean that you secure your spot at GDD before registration opens to the

The Android ADK Open Call will be announced on July 18 with the HTML5
Open Call following on August 1.
