Cloud Study Jams | GCP Essentials

Bring your laptop

In this introductory-level quest, you will get hands-on practice with the Google Cloud Platform’s fundamental tools and services. GCP Essentials is the recommended first Quest for the Google Cloud learner—you will come in with little or no prior cloud knowledge, and come out with a practical experience that you can apply to your first GCP project. From writing Cloud Shell commands and deploying your first virtual machine, to running applications on Kubernetes Engine or with load balancing, GCP Essentials is a prime introduction to the platform’s basic features.

Building an app with NativeScript and Firebase image
14:00 - 15:00
Building an app with NativeScript and Firebase

Are you a web developer who always wanted to write an app for both iOS and Android, but want to write it only once? Do you want a true, performant, native app, but don’t want to learn yet another language, yet another framework and get used to yet another IDE? With NativeScript, this is easier than you might think! NativeScript is an open source framework that lets you build truly native apps from one code base using Angular, Vue.js, TypeScript or JavaScript. You will get 100% access to all native APIs directly from your JavaScript or TypeScript code. In the workshop we will build a robust app with NativeScript. For the backend we use Firebase to speed up development.

Firebase and Apps Script for Mobile Development image
18:00 - 19:00
Firebase and Apps Script for Mobile Development

In this talk I’ll present the journey of building a personal app with Flutter, Firebase and Apps Script and publishing it. The app has met a certain success (100+ daily active users) and several problems were encountered once the app was live: scaling, managing different environments, the red screen of death showing on user’s phones…

The app uses the following Firebase features:
– Authentication
– Firestore
– Crashlytics
– Analytics
– Functions
– … and some new Firebase features fresh out the oven!

A “CMS-like” was done using Google Sheets and Apps Script.
On the app side, 100% of the code base is in Flutter! Everything I had in mind I could to it using APIs provided by the framework or external dependencies.
I’ll present how I solved the obstacles encountered during the development and after the publication of the app and how I could turn an idea into reality

Cloud Study Jams | BigQuery Basics for Data Analysts

Want to scale your data analysis efforts without managing database hardware? Learn the best practices for querying and getting insights from your data warehouse with this interactive series of BigQuery labs. BigQuery is Google’s fully managed, NoOps, low-cost analytics database. With BigQuery you can query terabytes and terabytes of data without having any infrastructure to manage or needing a database administrator. BigQuery uses SQL and can take advantage of the pay-as-you-go model. BigQuery allows you to focus on analyzing data to find meaningful insights.

Why and how internet companies know more about you than you think image
14:00 - 15:00
Why and how internet companies know more about you than you think

As an undisputed fact, data is the new soil of our times. Large companies are going to great lengths to aquire behavioural data from their users, which then results to large profits and innovation. – How are your data collected and how do third party applications discern between users ? – How can users still track you in “incognito” mode ? – Why and how can companies predict your next actions and capitalize on them ? These and much more questions about how much we should care about what data are being tracked, will be answered during this session.

Progressive Web Applications: The What, the Why and the How image

Progressive Web Applications: The What, the Why and the How

Mobile app development has been a dominant force in shaping the marketing landscape for small and large businesses alike. Native apps can make sense depending on an organization’s size and needs. We use our mobile devices a lot and a large amount of that time is spent using apps. However, the remainder of that time is spent browsing and searching the web from the mobile device. But what about people who don’t have or cannot download your app? Or current customers on a desktop computer? What about people with limited space on their phones who delete apps to make room for other things? What is their experience like? This is where progressive web apps (sometimes referred to as PWAs) shine. They combine the best features of the web with capabilities previously only available to native apps. Progressive web apps can be launched from an icon on the home screen or in response to a push notification. They load nearly instantaneously and can be built to work offline. Progressive web apps simply work. They are an enhancement to your website. No one needs to install anything to use a progressive web app. The first time someone visits your website, the features of a progressive web app are available immediately – no app stores (unless you want them).

Android & Assistant: a match made in heaven image

Android & Assistant: a match made in heaven

Android has 2.5 billion monthly active users. The Google Assistant on the other hand, the past year quadrupled its active users and it’s now available in more than a billion devices. While this number constantly grows, during this years IO we saw an Assistant that is smart, helpful, extremely fast, but most importantly a part of the OS instead of a tool. The Assistant can complete actions that would take any user a few minutes minutes, within seconds . From showing notifications and information when asked, to opening apps and complete the action there, this next gen Assistant is here to make our lives easier. How do you make sure though your content is visible to the Assistant and consequently to your users? How do you make your app “Assistant ready”? In this talk we’re going to explore among others the brand new app actions and slices for the Assistant, how you can make your own action, while we’re also going to touch on some app architecture basics
