About this event


Join us for an evening of talks!

"Tools for Protecting Your Users' Data" - Maurice Gavin (Android Lead, Toothpic)

2018 - the year the average user started to care about data protection. Mainstream media continues to run stories of Cambridge Analytica’s impact on democratic elections, and with the recent introduction of GDPR, data protection continues to be a hot topic.

This talk will focus on security features available from Google Play Services and Google's SafetyNet APIs. We will see how they allow developers to verify the trustworthiness of the devices their apps run on, as well as examples of how to implement them to improve your app’s security.

Next, we will share first hand experience of hardening an Android app that handles medical & health information. We will see where patient data had the potential to be leaked to 3rd parties and the measures taken to resolve this.

In this current climate of heightened user awareness we need to show that we can protect the users of our products, after this session you will be better able to do just that.

“Performance of Mobile Apps” - Doug Sillars (Freelance Developer Advocate/Solutions Architect)

Doug Sillars, author of "High Performance Android Apps" will present a talk that goes over best practices, and shows examples of how improvements made mobile apps run better.

"TensorFlow and AI" - Laurence Moroney (Staff Developer Advocate, Google)

Your next app might be a model! In this talk, Laurence Moroney from the Google Brain team will talk about TensorFlow and how you can use it to train Machine-Learned models that provide inference on input data. It's a whole new paradigm for programming, and it's now available for mobile, IoT and Web developers with TensorFlow Lite and TensorFlow.js!
