  • GDG Garage - Build your product

    TechHub Bucharest

    GDG Garage Series of Meetups is about working on side projects that you always wanted to do or finding real projects that provide a good opportunity for learning. Starting March 5th we will meet once every three weeks in a hands-on atmosphere with the goal of launching new apps on the market (hopefully by late June). In the first meetups we will define projects and teams, gather some early feedback. As we progress we will focus more on design, development, testing, marketing, post-release strategies. Each meetup will have a section dedicated for quick informal presentations or desktop sharing and an area for the teams to work. The projects should be mostly related to Android (Mobile) or Google Assistant (chatbots, conversational interfaces) to make the most out of the community’s experience. This is your chance to: - get the help and the team to build the project you've been thinking of; - exchange practical knowledge with experienced developers; - be part of an active network of product builders. We hope you are excited as we are and motivated to launch your (maybe first) product in 2019. Gather your team, write down your best idea and see you on March 5th.

  • Android - Build to Scale

    Tech Hub

    The first Android meetup of the year is here. We'll be discussing advanced Android engineering with Doug Sillars ( http://dougsillars.com ), Principal Architect for Mobile Performance at AT&T, book author ( http://bit.ly/HighPerfAndroidApps ) and digital nomad. In the second part of the meetup we'll crowdsource the latest Android related tips and tricks. Agenda: - Doug Sillars - It's Time to Stop Stalling Doug will speak about how the network calls in your mobile app can lead to poorly performing video and mobile applications. He'll walk through tools used for benchmarking web and native performance, and how to identify issues that may be slowing down your app. He will walk through issues seen in top mobile applications, how they were resolved, and how you as a developer can avoid the pitfalls that many top applications have suffered through. By the end of the talk, you'll have an understanding of why network performance is a critical testing step to ensure an excellent customer experience, and will have a solid background on common issues that can be fixed. - AdHoc Community Tips & Tricks Have you recently found a nice piece of Android code? A cool Android library? Maybe some hot tricks in Android Studio? Share your screen with us in this Lighting "5 minutes Talks" Session.
