What we're about

Welcome to the Official Google Developer Group (New York City) (https://developers.google.com/groups/chapter/102033742326416578905/)

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.

Our Mission: To translate technology awareness into actionable learning for personal and professional growth.

About GDG NYC

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.

CODE OF CONDUCT

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: http://bit.ly/gdgnyc-code-of-conduct

History

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 (https://meetup.com/nyc-gdg)" 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!

Disclosure

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).

DevFest Northeast 2020

Needs a location

PLEASE RSVP USING THE LINK BELOW https://gdg.community.dev/events/details/google-gdg-nyc-presents-devfest-northeast-2020/ Join us for DevFest Northeast 2020! It’s DevFest time! Our GDG communities have hosted great DevFests year after year and are keeping the momentum going in 2020. This year GDGs of the Northeast Region will be joining forces to bring you the content you crave from speakers you love! Join us for a socially connected but physically distant DevFest on Saturday October 31, 2020 from 10:00am - 3:00pm EST GET TICKETS: https://devfestnortheast.com/ Brought you by: GDG New Haven GDG Cloud Philly GDG Cloud NYC GDG New Brunswick GDG North Jersey GDG NYC GDG Manchester NH GDG Bronx GDG Boston Android GDG CR GDG Capital Region GDG Lawrence Agenda: 10:00 AM - 10:15 AM Intro and Welcome 10:10 AM - 11AM Sara Robinson Talk Title: Baking with Machine Learning Demo Learn how Sara trained a machine learning model that predicts what you are trying to bake - a cake, a bread or a cookie. See a demo how the model works in a web app, all done using Google Cloud Platform's services: - TensorFlow and Keras - AI Platform Predictions - Cloud Storage - Cloud Functions - Firebase Hosting You can try Sara's ML model for yourself and even invent new delicious recipes! Speaker Bio: Sara Robinson is a Developer Advocate for Google Cloud, focusing on machine learning. She inspires developers and data scientists to integrate ML into their applications through demos, online content, and events. Before Google, she was a Developer Advocate on the Firebase team. Sara has a Bachelor’s degree from Brandeis University. When she’s not writing code, she can be found on a spin bike or eating frosting. 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Frank van Puffelen Talk Title: Puf will take you From zero to app: live-coding with Firebase and StackBlitz on the web Getting started with web development has never been easier. In this talk Frank will live code two complete web apps from scratch, without copy/pasting any snippets. Both apps will be built on StackBlitz and will use Firebase for their back-end services. Speaker Bio: Frank (or Puf) is an engineer for Firebase at Google. He helps developers build extraordinary apps that use Firebase as their back-end. If you've ever asked a Firebase question on StackOverflow, you've probably met Frank already. 12:00 PM - 12:30 PM Break 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM Scott Stoll Talk Title: RenderFlex children have non-zero flex but incoming height constraints are unbounded You are not crazy. You are not alone. We all have nightmares about seeing these words in the Red Screen of Death. It's like quicksand, the more you fight the deeper you sink, and the worse it gets. "I'm from the government, I'm here to help." The trick to understanding why this happens is to understand a few different things, and then think about them together. Flexibles, flex, FlexFit, double.infinity, and Constraints can all come together to produce a reactive UI that works beautifully or a Red Screen of Death that will haunt your nightmares. In this talk, I'll help you learn how to kill the RenderFlex Boogeyman, and be just like John Wick. Speaker Bio: Scott Stroll has been involved with Flutter since v0.0.14 (Alpha), working both nationally and internationally as a Flutter Application Developer and Content Creator. Additionally, he has spoken and taught on Flutter at convention events in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, as well as many smaller groups and meetup organizations throughout the United States. 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM Dan Sullivan Talk Title: With Automated Machine Learning, Is Everyone Now a Machine Learning Engineer? No, not even close. Automated machine learning tools, like Google Cloud’s AutoML only automate a fraction of the work need to build quality, production-grade machine learning models. This presentation outlines what automated ML does well, like choosing an algorithm and optimizing hyperparameters, and what it does not do so well, such as formulating a business problem amenable to ML. The talk will focus on four areas where developers familiar with machine learning are needed: formulating problems, engineering data, evaluating the fairness of models, and monitoring and maintaining models in production. Speaker Bio: Dan Sullivan is a Principal Engineer with PEAK6 Technologies. He is a software architect and data scientist with extensive experience in data science, machine learning, and cloud architecture. Dan is the author of the official Google Cloud study guides for the Professional Architect, Professional Data Engineer, and Associate Cloud Engineer certification exams as well as the instructor of over a dozen courses on machine learning, data science, and cloud computing on LinkedIn Learning and Udemy. He holds a Ph.D. in genetics, bioinformatics, and computational biology with a focus on infectious disease genomics. 2:30 PM - 3:00 PM - Raffle / Wrap-up / Closing Remarks Prizes: O’Reilly https://www.oreilly.com/ O’Reilly offers 10 ebooks/books for our raffle and to all attendees 30 days full access to their online learning platform ($50 value each).
