Googlers and Community influencers from all over India

Google invited 50 Ecosystem influencers, GDE’S and Community organisers to its offices in Bangalore and also Googlers from chrome, web and Design team from around the world to come together and discuss the things that can drive the future of web community in India forward.

I was also invited to represent AMP opensource Community.

Google has always tried to do something innovative by giving equal opportunity to new people trying to join opensource as well as bring expertise from around the world that can make significant changes to the web.

India Web community leaders Summit 2019 #iwcls was organised in keeping the following things in mind -

  1. Hear out the issues and problems that community leaders are facing.
  2. Discuss together solutions to major problems
  3. Discuss key trends and insights about the web
  4. Network and bring together different web communities in India
  5. Have a wonderful time with Googlers and get answeres.


Before the event, all the attendees were asked to come with the challenges that they think were mostly faced when running the community. And that’s what was the agenda for the next discussion.
