According to a release from Google, “Across Georgia, small business owners are working to maximize every dollar. Thousands of teachers want to bring effective technology into the classroom. First responders are finding they must use technology in new ways. While large companies have teams of professionals getting the most out of online tools, there are smaller groups often don’t know where to start. That’s why Google is hosting this Googlefest in Douglas County.”
Google representatives will conduct workshops to showcase tools, products and best practices for educators, small businesses and first responders on the Internet, the release stated. Refreshments will be provided.
Google operates its only metro Atlanta data center in Lithia Springs. The data center, which employs 350, stores data within numerous computers in the facility.
“Googlefest continues Google’s commitment to build up the Georgia community. Googlers work hard to support the communities in which they live and work through grants, educational initiatives and events,” the release stated.
Googlefest is free and open to the public. Visit www.google.com/about/ datacenters/inside/locations/douglas -county/index.html for more on the Douglas County data center.
