What Does It Mean To Be A Google Developer? Share Your Story

Our developer program started in 2005 with a handful of APIs and developer advocates. Fast forward to today: Google offers over 100 APIs, dozens of developer tools, and a raft of developer advocates around the world. Obviously, a lot has changed and the Web has matured significantly. Google has also evolved and matured, and we felt that it was time to step back and rethink how we interact with and support our developer community. We believe we can make it easier to find what you’re looking for, and facilitate connections with others in the Google Developer community. We know we can do better and we want your input so that we can understand your needs — and what drives you — better.

Now we want to hear from you.

We want to know what inspires you as a developer and how Google can support you. What does being a Google developer mean to you? Tell us what’s important to you and how we can make your experience as a Google developer better. Like any good open source project, the Google developers project needs your contributions. Share your story so we can we better support your success — and we may just pick you to be featured.

You can add a video (it's easy, really!) directly from the page, on your mobile phone, or write to us here. However you share with us, we’re looking forward to hearing what you have to say.

Amy Walgenbach is the Product Marketing lead for the Google+ platform and leads developer marketing for games at Google.
