    TechHire Los Angeles

    Title:Focus on your code, not infrastructure, with Google Cloud Functions Description: In this talk, we will follow the story of the fictional startup "In Jest", publishers of an app that tells jokes. At first, the developers at "In Jest" need to get a minimum viable product up and running in an hour. As their business grows they will have to integrate with Google Sheets, databases, analytics systems, marketing systems and so on. We will see the 100 lines of code needed to make this happen, without having to worry the team about servers and data centers. Martin Omander bio: Martin Omander works for Google in Mountain View, California. His job in the Developer Relations team is to help developers build better software, and improve Google's Cloud Platform to make it even better for that purpose. In his spare time he manages to sneak in some game programming. Before Google, Martin worked at string of startups in Silicon Valley as a software engineer. Zoe Omander: Zoe is 13 years old, an online student, guitar player and YouTuber. She is also Martin's daughter and will present together with him.

  • Polymer, web components, & why you should care!

    TechHire Los Angeles

    Come join us at TechHire LA to learn about Polymer. About TechHire LA: In 2016, the White House awarded Youth Policy Institute $4 million to expand tech access to the diverse communities of Los Angeles. Through an innovative job training program, TechHire prepares individuals for high-demand careers in technology requiring no degree. Since then, we've connected employers to job seekers who possess the skills and the drive to succeed in the industry. We specialize in bridging candidates who've taken unconventional paths to acquiring the requisite skills to reputable employers filling the digital divide in Los Angeles. Talk: Polymer, web components, & why you should care - Christopher Schmitz Despite being introduced over 3 years ago by Google, including native support by all major browsers of the underlying standard (web components), Polymer doesn't have the same buzz behind it as some other web technologies...yet. This session will cover the basics of Polymer and web components in general and why they're important to pay attention to, even if you aren't a web developer. With the backing of Google, and use by major companies like Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Comcast, and of course Google in large scale projects, it's a safe bet Polymer's only just getting started. Chrome Dev Tools for Beginners - Anna Veretennikova Chrome DevTools are a developer’s best friend. You may get by without them, but having these instruments in your toolbox will boost your performance and will make your life easier overall. Starting from measuring those pixels and identifying colors to debugging specific javascript frameworks. This will not be a deep dive into each of them, but rather an overview that will enable you to explore further on your own. Speaker: Christopher Schmitz - Senior Android Developer @ Disney Chris has been a mobile developer for over a decade, leading Android development on apps reaching millions of users at companies like CitySearch, Break.com, and Disney, including the new Play Disney Parks app. He's also leading the development of a Polymer based open source project, the Collaboration Tree (cTree.org). Anna Veretennikova - Fullstack JavaScript Developer with experience in Node.js, Angularjs, React + Redux. Food, Drink and Prizes will be served! Getting Here: - There is rooftop parking on Beverly, right past the office.
