FIRST PRESENTATION
Build and scale serverless mobile apps with Firebase and Google Cloud
Doug Stevenson
Google

ABSTRACT
If your app has millions of users, you need a backend infrastructure to support its growth. Do you want to build that infrastructure? Of course not! Your time is better spent focusing on the app. In this talk, we'll take a look at the code for a mobile app that works like a “universal translator”. It uses Firebase and Google Cloud services and APIs. And we'll do it "serverless" without having to manage servers or infrastructure. A live demo of the app will be done with audience participation - bring a phone or laptop!

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Anyone who wants to see how Firebase developers cross into Google Cloud, or Google Cloud developers who are interested in using Cloud infrastructure to power realtime mobile apps.

THE SPEAKER:
Doug is a veteran engineer, experienced public speaker, and developer advocate at Google with the Firebase team. He developed web apps before the web had "apps", and developed for Android since the very first Android device was on the market. In the SF bay area, he's bootstrapped the efforts of several startups. Outside of work, Doug follows professional ice hockey and enjoys craft beer.

SECOND PRESENTATION
Serverless CI/CD on Google Cloud Platform
Lynn Langit @lynnlangit
GDE, Cloud Architect

ABSTRACT
In this talk see the newly released GCP Cloud Build service in action. Lynn Langit will build a serverless CI/CD pipeline using Google Cloud best practices.
The pipeline will include both a Continuous Integration and a Continuous Delivery build step and will build both code and service artifacts (docker container). The pipeline will use Build Triggers to implement these features.

THE SPEAKER:
Lynn Langit is a Cloud Architect and Developer. She is a GDE for Cloud, AWS Community Hero and Azure insider. In addition to production work on data pipelines, Lynn is also an author of 30 courses on cloud and data topics for Lynda.com.
