[Monthly Meetup] VueJS & NativeScript / "Zero to ML" On Google Cloud
5:30pm Doors Open Welcome & Announcements! 6:00pm "Create an Engaging Native Mobile App with Vue and NativeScript" (Jen Looper, Developer Advocate @Progress) ABSTRACT: You have a beautiful web site built with Vue? Great! Now you need a mobile app to engage your users even further. Or, better yet, you need to offer different, yet complimentary functionality, while retaining shared code between your web site and mobile app. Welcome to the beautiful world of Vue and NativeScript, which, paired together on the web and on mobile, make for a great user experience. In this talk, you’ll learn about my experience building Elocute, a web app for language teachers with a paired mobile app that students use to perfect their spoken language skills. You’ll discover how to build for the web and mobile platforms using NativeScript and Vue, making the most of the best of both platforms - data entry on the web, and speech-to-text on mobile. Let’s learn about how Vue can be used to build for the web and for mobile apps, sharing the love. SPEAKER: Jen Looper is a Google Developer Expert and a Senior Developer Advocate at Progress with over 15 years' experience as a web and mobile developer, specializing in creating cross-platform mobile apps. She's a multilingual multiculturalist with a passion for hardware hacking, mobile apps, machine learning and discovering new things every day. Visit her online at or via Twitter @jenlooper. 7:00 pm: "Zero to ML on Google Cloud Platform" ABSTRACT: Everyone’s talking about machine learning, but we hear much less about how to put it into practice. And let’s face it, that can be daunting! Even just 10 years ago you needed access to extensive academic and computing resources to make use of machine learning. Today we’re seeing revolutionary changes in hardware and software that are democratizing machine learning and making it accessible to any developer or data scientist. Whether you’re new to ML or you’re already an expert, GCP has a variety of tools to help you. I’ll start with the basics: how to use a pre-trained ML model with a single API call. Then you’ll learn how to customize a pre-trained model with AutoML. I’ll end by showing how to train and serve a custom TensorFlow model on GCP. SPEAKER: Sara Robinson is a Developer Advocate on Google's Cloud Platform team, where she helps with developer relations through online content, outreach and events. She has a bachelor’s degree in Business and International Studies from Brandeis University. When she's not programming, she can be found running, listening to country music, or finding the best ice cream in New York. Follow her @SRobTweets or read her awesome developer posts at 8:00pm Lightning Talks & Raffle (LT-1) Title: "Making The Tensors Flow" Abstract: Learning many new things simultaneously is one of the challenges facing us as we enter the field of Machine Intelligence. I’ll show you how TensorFlow works independent of neural networks. Speaker Bio: Joseph Friedman is a software engineer and computer science instructor. He has earned the Machine Learning Engineer and Deep Learning Foundations Nanodegrees from Udacity. A lifelong technologist with a passion for helping others, when not teaching or coding he can be found researching a healthy work-life balance. (LT2) (Raffle) If you participated in the Study Jams in January, and completed the requirements to get the Mobile Site Certification -- you will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win one of three Android Squishables (giant Android plush figures) so get going! 8:30pm Doors Close

What we're about

Public Group

Welcome to the Official Google Developer Group (New York City) (

We are a technology-based organization that is completely run by a community of volunteer organizers. Because of this we are always looking for volunteer help in running events, and are open to community suggestions and contributions in terms of speakers, event venues and sponsorships. Just talk to one of the organizers and we'll be happy to work with you. We typically meet on the first or second Monday of each month for our regular meetups. In addition, we may have "special" events (e.g., ML Camp, Study Jam etc.) scheduled outside of these dates, at a different interval.


We are software developers, designers, educators and students with an interest in learning about emergent technologies in areas including (but not limited to) mobile, web, wearables, cloud computing, education technology, data sciences and smart homes.

Our events can vary from featured Tech Talks (40 mins or more) to Short Talks (20 mins), Lightning Talks (5 mins) as well as focused events (workshops, hackathons, study jams).

Our talks may feature Google technology (e.g., Chrome, Android, AngularJS, Google Glass, Android Wear, Polymer, Google Compute Engine ..) but also extends to competitive technologies, products and platforms.

Our primary goal is to create actionable networking, collaboration and entrepreneurial connections for technology enthusiasts in the New York City.

All members of the Google Developer Group (NYC) are expected to adhere to our Code of Conduct. Simply put: "Be Excellent to each other". Harassment of any kind (physical, verbal, digital) will not be tolerated and can potentially lead to expulsion from events, or even from the community. A more detailed version of the Code of Conduct is found here:


The founding organizers of this meetup are long-time members of the Google Developer Group community. Prior to March 2016, this meetup existed as "GDG New York (" and we organized several successful events around Android, Cloud, Polymer, VR, Wearables and Chrome under that banner.

In March 2016, we made a collective decision to rebrand and launch "GDG NYC" as the official Google Developer Group New York City chapter and look forward to working with both the Google Developer advocates and with the greater New York City developer community, to make this city a showcase for next-generation technologies. Join us!


We are not run by Google. However, we are a listed Google Developers community and count on them as one of our sponsors (specifically as venue hosts and for signature events like Study Jams). Any opinions and activities here are our own and do not reflect that of Google (the corporation).
