    Are you interested in technology and wonder what Google will come up with next?

    Since we are all sitting at home, in lockdowns, home offices, and streaming meetings from our kitchen tables, we decided to try recreating some of the magic Google I/O is known for in a digital format – from the comfort of our homes. We will be hosting the event on Spatial Chat (https://spatial.chat) to keep as social and interactive as possible.

    The idea is simple: We open a channel where we stream the Google I/O Keynote and the Developer Keynote on May 18th and keep the channel open as long as there are still people.

    There will be a Kahoot quiz with sweet giveaways! 🎉🧸

    (Note: the giveaways will only be shipped in Norway due to practical reasons).

    --- This event is co-hosted with GDG Cloud Oslo. ---

    Agenda:

    19:00-21:00 - Keynote

    21:00-21:15 - Kahoot quiz

    21:15-22:00 - Developer Keynote

    Hope to see you all there! 👋

  • [Online] Container Tips and Tricks

    Online event

    This is collaborative event with GDG Cloud Oslo

    **Talk:**
    Everyone is talking about containers—but be aware! It takes discipline to use container technology. It may not be as secure nor as optimal as you thought it would be. Although it’s relatively easy to create a new immutable container image to run everywhere, you may have fallen into many of the caveats. Is it running as the root user? Why are the images taking so much space? Why did your containers run out of space in the first place!? Most importantly, your container images may not be as immutable nor repeatable as you thought, and your Java process might be overutilizing assigned resources! Attend this session to learn how to best address these issues when building your Java container images.

    **Speaker:**
    Ray Tsang
    Ray is a Developer Advocate for the Google Cloud Platform and a Java Champion. Ray works with engineering and product teams to improve Java developer productivity on GCP. Ray also help Alphabet companies migrate and adopt cloud native architecture. Prior to Google, Ray worked at Red Hat, Accenture, and other consulting companies. Ray focused on enterprise architecture, managed solutions delivery, and contributed to open source projects. Aside from technology, Ray enjoys traveling and adventures.

    Title:
    The future of Angular and Ivy by Manfred Steyer

    Abstract:
    Ivy is primarily associated with smaller bundles and therefore better performance. However, Ivy has much more to offer, and many smart concepts provide the foundation for some much-anticipated future features.

    Find out how Ivy's potential can impact your future architecture. We use a case study to explore a possible future without NgModules but Standalone Components, the use of dynamic components or higher-order components, zone-less change detection, and new possibilities for lazy loading and plug-in systems.

    In the end, you understand Ivy's potential and how to start preparing for it today.

    Title: Angular Elements for Authentication: The what, the how and the why by Ana Cidre

    Abstract:
    In this talk, we will take a look at what Angular Elements are, what they consist of and how to build them. Then we will see what advantages Web Components have when approaching and implementing authentication into our application, how Web Components can facilitate the implementation of authentication and share some examples of which Web Components we can create to simplify the process. We will also talk about what options we have today to build Web Components, which frameworks support them and whether browsers are ready for them.

  • Collaborative Virtual Event - Flutter Study Jam

    Online event

    We are excited to announce our Flutter Study Jam, a virtual event by Flutter Oslo Meetup Group, GDG Oslo, GDG Bergen, GDG Sorlandet and GDG Stavanger collaboration.

    Note: Link to join the event will be announced soon.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Join us for our Online Flutter Study Jam!

    Flutter is Google’s portable UI kit for crafting high-quality native interfaces on iOS and Android in record time. Flutter works with existing code, is used by developers and organizations around the world, and is free and open source.

    Together we'll work through Flutter codelabs prepared by Google instructors. You will be able to get hands-on experience with Flutter and build an app while learning the fundamentals.

    The Study Jams for Flutter is best suited for two audiences:

    1) Those with programming experience who have never used flutter and want to see what’s it all about.

    2) People who have some experience with Flutter and want to learn new ways to implement mobile/web apps in.

    IMPORTANT INFO:
    Prepare a laptop! For the best experience, the laptop should have Flutter installed on it prior to starting the study jam to save time. Windows/Linux/Mac would all be fine.

    Please check if after installing Flutter SDK your laptop can compile and run a basic empty app in Flutter.

    Check out: https://flutter.dev/docs/get-started/install

    Please install Visual Studio Code if you don't have Android Studio already set up
