The Southern Idaho GTUG was born through the cooperative efforts of The College of Southern Idaho and Twin Falls High School IT programs. These programs focus on server-side scripted application development and the development of interfaces on multiple platforms to use and manage the app through the "Cloud". While developing the vision of the program and training on the related development platforms, we saw a need for a community of developers that focus around the Android platform and other Google technologies. We hope to grow the Southern Idaho GTUG into a community of developers that provide resources and support for others in Southern Idaho. We are passionate about community, open-source and commercial development, and giving teenagers a look at the real world of IT.
