The Google Developers team supports a number of global programs geared up to help make developers successful. Google Developer Groups aims to build and foster local developer communities globally, while Women Techmakers provides visibility, community and support for women in tech. Elsewhere, Launchpad offers resources for startups to help them launch and scale their apps. Through all these programs, our goal has been to positively impact the experience of developers and startups globally as they build products and apps on Google and other open source technologies.
In today’s app economy, a large number of mobile and web apps are created by developer agencies globally. These agencies cater to the needs of large enterprises and small startups by helping them build applications that range from proof of concepts to fully featured apps. Because developer agencies play a central role in the success of the ecosystem in many markets, it was important to build a comprehensive program that provided more dedicated support.
That’s why we’re excited to announce our new Google Developers Agency Program. Through this program we will work with developer agencies around the world, providing them with dedicated access to training and events, customized online resources, best practices, and developer support. Ultimately, we want to help agencies build the highest quality apps and products using Google technologies, ensuring they’re at the top of their game and delivering the best app experiences for their clients’ needs.
Soon, we’ll also provide a directory of the agencies we’re working with on our website. If you’re a client looking for an agency to help with your app requirements, you’ll be able to easily find trained agencies who have access to resources from Google for the job.
The program will first roll out in India, UK, South East Asia and the US. We plan to expand to more countries throughout 2016. To learn more about this initiative and show interest, visit developers.google.com/agency.
