Google's not one to shy away from engaging its developers. Between the Android developers blog, Google Groups, and a myriad of other contact methods, Google is pretty open about talking with developers. If you're looking to get a bit more social, you can now add the official Android developers page to your circles Google+.

If there's one thing we love, it's an open community of developers working together. Google has been pushing harder to try and steer its developers in the direction it wants. The style guide is a pretty big step. This should be just as welcome. No word yet, though, on whether our favorite loveable Android mascot will be appearing in a Hangout.

    As it turns out, 3 1/2 hours after the first post they popped up with a statement of regular G+ Hangouts being scheduled on Wednesdays


    This reminds me so much of the Microsoft v Apple thing from about 20 years ago. Microsoft courted developers while Apple treated them like parasites. Apple hasn't learned and Google took the spotlight from MS...though, with all of this, I'm starting to wonder if Google may be in danger of spreading their attention a little too thin.
