Talk 1: You build it, Google runs it (serverlessly) in containers
Focus on your application’s features by running and scaling out containers in a serverless way, managed by Google. Scaling to billions of users is something Google knows very well. You don’t need to know Kubernetes to scale applications on the cloud.

Learn how to operate containers on Cloud Run to propel your company ahead even without a DevOps engineer. In this session, we’ll explore other GCP services like Cloud Build, and Cloud Logging to help you achieve business goals. You’ll gain practical knowledge and useful tips on running most workloads on serverless containers that can scale to zero when there is no traffic.

Talk 2: Build a word puzzle with Flutter

We’ll run through one of Google IO 2024’s Flutter codelabs. Imagine being asked whether it's possible to create the world's largest crossword puzzle. You recall some AI techniques that you studied at school and wonder whether you can use Flutter to explore the algorithmic options to create solutions to computationally intensive problems.

In the codelab, you do exactly that. By the end, you build a tool to play in the space of algorithms for constructing word grid puzzles. There are many different definitions of what is a valid crossword puzzle and these techniques help you build puzzles that fit your definition.

About the speaker, Mark Videon:

Mark is a software engineer building products for mobile, desktop and the web at Appliquette, a digital agency right here in Adelaide, Australia.
