As it often happens with newly emerging technologies, the path of a developer for Google Assistant is not an easy one. Lack of support and documentation, missing tools, breaking changes. We are happy to share what we have learned from building a b2c eCommerce Action on Google for foodora.

Last but not least, we teamed up for this Meetup with Codemotion, the largest tech conference for software developers in EMEA. And we're happy to provide a discount code to our community: COMMUNITY_GDGBERLINCLOUD will give you 20% off of all tickets! 👉 https://berlin2018.codemotionworld.com/

Hope to see you all there!
