About this event

GDG Cloud Santa Clara chapter is excited to be back with another event at our favorite location in Santa Clara, Hacker Dojo!

On November 21st, we are having Michael Solati, Developer Program Engineer at Google, teaching us how to build apps for the Google Assistant by leveraging the tool Typeform. Read more info of what you can expect from his talk below:

"Reader Beware, Choose Your Own Scare..."

Everyone loves a good spooky story! (Or is cowering under their bed sheets... Either/or...) And what better to captivate the audience than letting them choose their own scare? We all can't be in the same illustrious class of penmen as R.L. Stine, but we can create compelling experiences with tools such as Typeform! Code doesn't always tell a compelling story, but conversational UIs developer with easy to use logic jumps can help you craft your own interactive adventure. See how to use the Typeform to give your conversational UIs a voice on the Google Assistant with Dialogflow and Firebase. Now you can spread your stories reach to more than 500 million devices, including smart speakers, phones, cars, TVs, headphones, watches, and more.
