This GTUG is acting as the new home of 2 long running organizations who had created 8 previous open source events in the past year and a half these are 2 NPOs:
1. The Israeli Android Assc.
The Cantina (based on the french le cantine).
The GTUG is based in herzeliya for a few reasons:
1. it is the home of the IDC - one of the most innovative and intriguing academic institutes in israel and the sponser of "MILab" which we have started a coraporation with.
2. Herzeliya is also the home of "Herzeliya pituach" which is one of israel's most known high-tech districts.
our main Google Tech interest is Android but we are trying to branch out.
Since we belive in unity over ego (at least when it comes to community :) ) we had established a coraporation with the TLV GTUG which states that each GTUG will alternate our by-monthly events and help orgenize each other's events thus we would not compete over members.
