• 0->100% Kotlin is just the beginning! GDG Atlanta Monthly Meetup
    GDG Atlanta members, we are pleased to announce our next exciting talk from Charles Anderson, 0->100% Kotlin is just the beginning!, at our new home, stable | kernel "Starting to convert code to Kotlin is just beginning. Understanding the language, and it's features, can supercharge your development and make developing software _even more fun_. We'll cover everything from your first *Convert to Kotlin...* to complex features in an way that shows you exactly how approachable this language is. And all that can empower you as the developer to get more done, in less code, that is more readable, and all without a *;*... unless you want one. " About our Speaker: "Charles is a Staff Android Engineer at Pandora. He has been developing software for more than 15 years, and published his first Android app in 2011. He loves contributing to the open source community, and building independent apps, games, and libraries. He loves Kotlin and Coroutines, and champions them as often as possible."

  • An Introduction to Webtask with Raymond Camden
    Webtask is an "ultra-light" serverless framework focused on quickly putting up HTTP endpoints. You can prop up a serverless endpoint in minutes and even write the all of the code online with a web-based editor. Webtask (http://webtask.io ) is a platform for creating serverless endpoints. With a simple CLI and (totally optional) online editor, you can quickly create serverless code to handle most nearly any task. Webtask is especially good for quick prototyping of functionality without needing to go through the bore of setting up a server. I'll walk people through the installation of the CLI, demonstrate how to create a webtask, and show off the online editor as well. I'll then show some demos of things that can be built in webtask while also discussing how it can be used in apps for user-based customization. About our Speaker Raymond Camden is a senior developer advocate for Auth0 Extend. His work focuses on Extend, serverless, and the web in general. He's a published author and presents at conferences and user groups on a variety of topics. Raymond can be reached at his blog (www.raymondcamden.com), @raymondcamden on Twitter, or via email at [masked]. Sponsor Our sponsor for this event is CONNECT.TECH! CONNECT.TECH (http://connect.tech/) is the Southeast’s premier annual conference dedicated to JavaScript, Web and Mobile related technologies, tools, and frameworks. CONNECT.TECH will feature presentations and workshops from global technology and thought leaders as well as local community speakers. TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

  • Introduction to Docker Containers and Orchestration in the Cloud
    Join GDG Atlanta for our next monthly meeting. This month we are proud to welcome Jeremy Likness back, as we move into our new Home at WeWork Buckhead, for his talk: Introduction to Docker Containers and Orchestration in the Cloud Docker is the de facto tool for creating containerized applications, but leveraging containers in production isn't always straightforward. There are many options from simple hosts to complex orchestration tools. In this session you will learn about containers. You will discover hands-on how to create Docker images, load them to a custom registry and deploy them at scale with a simple example application written in Go and JavaScript. Finally, you will see orchestration in action with examples of cloud deployments implemented with Azure Container Instances, Web Apps for Containers, and Azure Kubernetes Services. Jeremy Likness, Cloud Developer Advocate at Microsoft Jeremy is a Cloud Developer Advocate for Azure at Microsoft. Jeremy wrote his first program in 1982, was recognized in the "who's who in Quake" list for programming the first implementation of "Midnight Capture the Flag" in Quake C and has been developing enterprise applications for 25 years with a primary focus on web-based delivery of line of business applications. Jeremy is the author of four technology books, a former 8-year Microsoft MVP for Developer Tools and Technologies, is an international speaker and writes regularly on cloud and container development. Jeremy follows a 100% plant-based diet and spends most of his free time running, hiking and camping, and playing 9-ball and one pocket.
