Last Friday (22 February), Google launched a space for Southeast Asian developers, known as Developer Space @ Google Singapore.

The new space will serve as a home for developers and entrepreneurs from around the region to learn, inspire, connect, and engage.

In an article on Google's blogSami Kizilbash, Developer Relations Program Manager, said: "This is the first physical space dedicated to developers, that is located within a Google office - thus, opening up avenues for developers to gain insights, mentorship and networking opportunities within Google's Asia Pacific headquarters."

Programmes that will be held here include machine-learning bootcamps, workshops on Google's latest tools and technologies, and programmes such as LeadersLab and Indie Games Accelerator that fuel ecosystem growth.

Further, the company will support activities organised by community groups. For instance, Women Techmakers, Google Developer Groups, and Business Groups.

At the launch of Developer Space @ Google Singapore, Minister for Communications and Information S. Iswaran said: "Technology and digitalisation have made possible a wealth of opportunities for everyone.

"We believe that these new digital solutions, and the collective efforts of the government, the industry and various other stakeholders will help ensure that our businesses are more competitive and innovative."
