GDG Chennai is a volunteer-driven tech community intending to create a technology ecosystem in Chennai. We're one of the oldest GDGs in the world. We were started in 2010 as GTUG (Google Technologies User Group) Chennai by young professionals who wanted to promote the community culture and make Chennai the next technology hub. Over the years, we have hosted meetups, conferences, workshops, study jams, and hackathons with the idea that everyone should get the opportunity to learn from each other, express their thoughts, build together and contribute back to the community.

In 2012, GTUG was rebranded as GDG (Google Developer Groups) and became an official Google Developers program. All events that advocate or evangelize the products or mission of Google and its Google Developers program are funded and supported by Google's Developer Relations India.

With the trends changing in the last few years, we realize people do not attend meetups just for the content. They come to network and build connections. We were happy to see our members unconsciously make this shift. We wanted to catch up with that wind and take that direction since the community thinks that's the way forward. In the coming years, GDG Chennai will work with other communities, startup incubators, and accelerators in the city to be that platform to create networking opportunities for anyone interested in tech and who wants to build their ideas with the community. While we do all this, we want to ensure that our activities are accessible to everyone.
