About this event

GDG Cloud Melbourne has landed, and we've got a cracker of a Meetup planned to get the ball rolling. With the lights now on in Sydney, it's the perfect time to get yourself across the products on Google Cloud Platform.

Doors open at 5:00pm. Talks will start at 5:30pm sharp, and we'll wrap up at 8:15pm



- Welcome & Intro, Mark Johnson (Shine) & Gareth Jones (Shine)

Introducing the new GDG Cloud Melbourne meetup to the community, and an awesome demo to help warm up the cores, awaken the spindles, and lubricate the cooling system pumps in the new Sydney region!

- Apache Beam and Google Cloud Dataflow, Mete Atamel (Google)

In this session, we will take a look at the history of massive-scale data processing at Google and how it has evolved over the years. We will learn about Apache Beam, an open source programming model unifying batch and stream processing and see how Apache Beam pipelines can be executed in Google Cloud Dataflow, a fully-managed cloud service for batch and stream data processing. 

- Machine Learning APIs by Example, Sara Robinson (Google)

Think your business could make use of Google's machine learning expertise when it comes to powering and improving your business applications, but do you get stuck on building and training your own custom model? Google Cloud Platform (GCP) offers four APIs: Google Cloud Vision API, Cloud Speech API, Cloud Natural Language API, and Cloud Translation API. These APIs access pre-trained machine learning models with a single API call. In this session, we'll share an overview of each API. Then we'll dive into code with a live demo.
