Speaking about the benefits of a program like this, Shyamal Mehta, Co-Founder, Techjini a Google certified agency said, “It is great to be a part of Google Developer Program as it has opened channels to work directly with Google engineers. There is a growing demand to build visually appealing apps that can also deliver a great user experience even in poor network conditions. We encountered this challenge while developing Pepperfry app which is visually heavy app, being part of the network allowed us to work hand in hand with the Google  developer advocates and support team to identify and solve performance roadblocks and deliver a product which offers a great user experience”.
