• GDG Berlin: Production ML Pipelines with TensorFlow

    SRH Hochschule Berlin

    Welcome in the Berlin summer, Google Developers! Before we do our usual July/August pause, let's have a GDG Berlin meetup. We are very lucky to welcome Robert Crowe, a data scientist and TensorFlow addict from Google, coming to Berlin from California. Robert has a passion for helping developers quickly learn what they need to be productive. He's used TensorFlow since the very early days and is excited about how it's evolving quickly to become even better than it already is. Before moving to data science Robert led software engineering teams for both large and small companies, always focusing on clean, elegant solutions to well-defined needs. You can find him on Twitter at @robert_crowe Robert talk will cover Production ML Pipelines with TensorFlow. Here is a short abstract: Most of the focus in the ML community is on research, which is exciting and important. Equally important however is bringing that research to production applications to solve real-world problems, but the issues and approaches for doing that are often poorly understood. We discuss the use of distributed pipeline architectures for implementing production ML applications, and in particular we review Google’s experience with TensorFlow Extended (TFX). Google uses TFX for large scale ML applications, and offers an open-source version to the community. TFX scales to very large training sets and very high request volumes, and enables strong software methodology including testability, hot versioning, and deep performance analysis. Robert Crowe is a data scientist and TFX Developer Advocate at Google and will discuss how developers can move their ML applications to TFX or similar platforms for both training and inference. Following Robert's talk, we will have our usual short "What's new on the Google Cloud Platform", to give you some highlights of what was presented at Next a couple of months ago (including a quick Cloud Run demo). Thank you to SRH Hochschule Berlin for hosting us this month and for providing us with snacks and drinks for you all. See you on Monday 24th September 2019! Manjula and Jerome

  • GDG Berlin: Introduction to Flutter

    Rotherstraße 19

    Hello Google Developers, For our March meetup, we will host Johannes giving us an introduction on Flutter along with a demo. Flutter is a cutting edge framework from Google for developing mobile applications on iOS & Android. After this talk you will know how Flutter's architecture works in general for creating high performance mobile applications. In the second part of the talk, we will investigate how to build a simple Flutter application with the BloC pattern, which helps you to create mobile applications with a simple and clean architecture. Johannes Milke is a Flutter Software Engineer from Berlin who recently graduated from FH Lübeck university with a degree in Applied Science of Information Technology and Software Engineering. In his bachelor thesis, he has focused on evaluating Flutter and developing mobile business applications for service providers and their customers. In addition to our main presentation on Flutter, we will as always present a quick update on what is new on the Google Cloud Platform, and we will give you a quick demo Google Cloud Functions as a way to prototype a service. We are looking forward to welcoming you at adesso AG. Thanks a lot to them for hosting us, and providing drinks and pizzas! We are looking forward to seeing you there, Manjula and Jerome

You will be able to run the codelab on your laptop, or just watch as it is being done by the Firebase developer. We will then have time for question, and networking. Here are the Firebase team members we are excited to have at this event: - Sam Stern writes open source samples and libraries (like FirebaseUI) to make Firebase development easier. He works on a lot of areas, but focuses on backend services (Firestore, RTDB, Functions, etc.). And he’s the team's designated Android nerd. - Tina Skublics is a software engineer on the Firebase console backend, which focuses on provisioning and managing resources for Firebase projects. Her work includes integrations such as Crashlytics BigQuery export, as well as support for selecting Cloud resource locations. - Rachel Saunders is a technical writer for Firebase. She writes developer and reference docs for various Firebase services and tools, like Firebase Hosting and the Firebase CLI.
