You can use Dialogflow, Firebase and Google Cloud Platform for many reasons, we can create interactions to be used within your own communities, may it be a conversational action for families, companies, sports; to help workflows for both customers and businesses. Sometimes it can be a bad thing to talk to an automated conversation if it is not well-designed.

Everyone at all levels is welcome to attend this talk!

Ayelet Sachto -> If you can drive you can architect a system: what you should not forget when architecting a solution

In this talk, I will try to simplify a complex subject, by demonstrating how natural solution architecture can be if you use a different perspective, implementing similar logic from a driver’s daily life through architecture challenges. We will start with demonstrating such trade-offs and design principles by asking simple questions as “which car would you buy?” and "What will your answer be if you have 1000$? 10M$, Would you buy the same car? Will it affect your decision If you driving 10 mins a day? 10 hours a day? Together we will cover the key points and questions you should consider when architecting your solution.

Ayelet is a strategic cloud engineer @Google UK, focusing on infrastructure, AppDev, and SRE. Throughout her 15 years career, She developed and architect large scale applications and data flows while implementing DevOps practices and SRE methodologies. Ayelet is also an active member in the tech community, she is a mentor, lecturer, and formerly lead the "Women in Hi-Tech'' community's content and mentoring program in Israel.
