Seattle GDG Dev Fest 2013 - Chrome Technologies

If you were previously on the wait list, you still have to pay for your ticket to confirm your reservation.

Find event info here - for those that are confirmed.

Follow the action and new announcements by joining our Dev Fest Google Plus Event.

If you didn't get a ticket - we're going to try to broadcast our morning presentations so you can still watch On Air.

Dev Fest is an all-day event for you to learn new Google technologies.  Bring your laptop - we're going to feature hands-on labs so you can dig in and try out what you've learned with the help of our on-site experts.

At the end of the day, we invite you to present a 5 minute demo of what you've been working on during the day (and we'll have prizes for the coolest demos; if you don't want to demo your stuff - that's cool too; just come to learn and have fun).

 

You'll also have a chance to win some of the latest Google devices!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We're focusing this year's event on these Chrome-based technologies:

1. Chrome Apps (aka Packaged Apps) - Build installable apps that
run anywhere Chrome does. 
2. Angular.js - Javascript App Framework
3. Dart - A new programming language and environment for building
web-based applications.

    As usual, I will try to promote my latest project here. You can try my new note app from the demo site or download it from the chrome store. https://github.com/yguan/notepad

    Chrome Store is phasing out support for extension and legacy app, and it seems all the user count and review count are not updated since last week. With angularjs, adding ng-csp should fix all the csp complaints unless some of the directives you use are not csp-conform.

      Congrats! Well done. Always awesome to see people take their projects to the next level and actually release something.

    Good presentations in the morning, but expected some coding goals in the afternoon instead of just being left off on my own with the tutorials of the web, I can do that at home as well.

    1 · September 30, 2013

    • Mike K.

      Good points. Some people like the on-your-own-with-help format, but we could have done a better job with structured code labs.

      September 30, 2013

    • P.Hill

      Probably facilitate this is people grouped by
      "let's do a lab together" vs.
      "we came with an idea or even some code and we're ready to go"

  • George S.

    Great idea, but since almost know one is interested in all the topics, there was too much time taken for the upfront presentations. So, more lab time with more "experts" available.

    I had a great time making my first Chrome App and my first mobile app with Cordova. Here are a couple links that were very helpful in porting the Chrome App to mobile app:
    Main Page: https://github.com/MobileChromeApps
    Installation: https://github.com/MobileChromeApps/mobile-chrome-apps/blob/master/docs/Installation.md

    Thanks!

    It was terrific for the most part, food, drinks and developers were great, however, a bit too extensive (9am - 8pm) for me. Otherwise, keep up the good work.

    Anyone got that link to the angular codelab?

    Has anyone gotten to the Internet through the netid screen on Windows 8? I connect to the WIFI but then hitting google.com fails and never brings up NetID page. I have tried desktop IE and Chrome.

    September 28, 2013

    • P.Hill

      thanks for help

      If you have set your wireless connection to use a specific DNS server (such as Google's[masked]), change that to get the DNS server address automatically. It appears if you're not using the UW's DNS, you won't get the redirect to the UWNetID signin form. (I had the same symptom, then recalled I'd hard-wired my DNS. When I cleared that, I was able to connect.)

      September 28, 2013

  • Mikael (Mike) M.

    Can you post a link to the slide, so not everyone needs to move up to the screen?

      This doesnt seem to work for me. Is this WEP?

      Connect to University of Washington. Open a webpage, select 12 hour and enter the UW NetID.

    I'm really not familiar with what this event is about. Can I just bring my Pixel along? It has crouton installed with Ubuntu chrooted. Otherwise I guess I could bring a mbp (i'd prefer not to though since it's a work laptop).

    September 28, 2013

    • Mike K.

      It is possible to write code using only the pixel. You could use package app editor or code envy

    I have something up tomorrow, so sadly I cannot make it. I give up my seat. It would be great for someone to take my seat and enjoy the event ;)

    Sorry to bug out on such short notice, but some unexpected personal business has come up. I hope there's a dev on the waitlist who hasn't made their weekend plans yet!

    September 27, 2013

    • Mike K.

      Thanks for freeing up a spot - we're trying to get as many people from the waitlist in as we can.

    What exactly will be at Friday evening? Presentations or just meet the people event? I'm asking because don't know if I can make it (I'm on eastside) and just want to know what I can miss...

    September 24, 2013

    • Mike K.

      It's a party and a chance to meet our speakers and other attendees. It will last from 5:30 to 7:30, so you're welcome to also come late.

  • Vikas T.

    I'm new to web technology. I'm wondering if this is going to be useful to novice look like me? Any suggestions if I should attend the sessions?

      I am in the same boat. Thanks for the info.

      August 27, 2013

    I just release a Chrome extension that allows you to manage your Chrome bookmarks with tags other than folders. You can use it to load your existing bookmarks to the extension and turn all folders to tags. It's built with angular.js and indexedDB, and you can find it in my github account (https://github.com/yguan/bookmark-tagging).

    If you find it useful, please share it with others, and feel free to do something to the code.

    August 25, 2013

    • Mike K.

      Looks really interesting. Maybe you'd like to talk about your project in a lightening talk in our October meetup?

      August 27, 2013

    • Yong G.

      If I don't have any schedule conflict, I will try to make it to the October meetup.
