- Flutter Code Session
We'll be in Shared Learning - 207 A few of us have been playing around with Flutter for fun and for profit. This is an opportunity to meetup and work on projects together. The focus will be on flutter, but you're free to work on anything you might be interested in. Bring your laptop! To learn more about Flutter, visit the link below: https://flutter.io/ Below is a project I've been working on: https://github.com/dazza5000/austin-feeds-me-flutter Feel free to post what you've been working on. Thank you! Darran
- Apache Cassandra on Google Cloud Platform
DataStax Apache Cassandra is a masterless database designed to scale linearly and provide continuous availability. This talk will introduce the fundamental concepts at the heart of Apache Cassandra and cover the integration of DataStax Apache Cassandra into the Google Cloud Platform ecosystem to provide an extremely simple yet powerful managed database. Speaker Bio: Peyton Casper is a Solutions Engineer for DataStax in the Southeast and currently resides in Atlanta, GA where he helps customers in the region build solutions with DataStax Enterprise. Peyton Casper has been working at DataStax for over 4 years and he enjoys learning about different programming languages, 3D printers, machine learning and more in his spare time.
- A Google Software Engineer talks about Firestore
Scott Leland Crossen from the Google Firestore team is flying in to present at our meetup. Scott will start by covering Cloud Firestore at an introductory level, and then discuss the data model and rules language with a focus on how to develop, test, and use them in your app. Cloud Firestore is a realtime NoSQL database offered by Google that can be accessed directly from any client. It has a unique data model and a rules-governing permission system. Speaker bio: As an undergraduate at Brigham Young University, Scott studied condensed matter physics with an emphasis in quantum computation. After receiving his second major in CS and launching a SaaS startup, Scott now works for Google’s Firebase Backend Infrastructure team. He enjoys backpacking, cycling and shining lasers at stuff. Interestingly, Scott also has an identical twin brother that works for Facebook. p.s. talks from Google engineers are always good :)

Let’s take a dive into Kotlin Coroutines, a new, powerful Jetbrains library that makes threading easy. Senior Android Software Engineer, Lauren Yew from Under Armour will present: - What coroutines are and how they function - How to use them (with real world examples and demos) - Where and why you should use coroutines in your app - How to avoid pitfalls of coroutines - How they compare to other threading solutions like callbacks and RxJava
- TensorFlow Overview & Summit Highlights
After you've recovered from SXSW, come out for a night of Machine Learning with TensorFlow. We're doing an overview of TensorFlow and highlights from the TensorFlow Dev Summit. Data Scientist Tian Yang from Volusion will use Python and real datasets to talk about reinforcement learning and prediction.
- Flutter DevFest #FlutterDev
More info to come, but I wanted to put something up as a placeholder. Let's plan on spending a day diving into and developing with Flutter. We will be in Shared Learning Room: 471 Activities include: An overview of Flutter Where Flutter shines Using TensorFlow/Machine Learning with Flutter I am still working on a location. If you have a place that could host 20-30 people that would be willing to host, please reach out to me through meetup or on twitter at @whereisdarran
