It’s just a training center. Not doing any work for real.

Is this like how Apple has a store in emery vile?

No, not even that. It’s not producing any revenue for Google. Nor is it doing any work for Google inc. It’s just charity.

The Fruitvale area is pretty rough. In the heart of the flatland where most crime occur.

It’s still good to see a tech company helping the community.

Theoretically, yes. But I am always suspicious of these feel good gestures. Why not spend some of its billions for STEM scholarships and encourage young people to get a STEM degree? Training center can only go so far.
