Day 1 has a lot of Machine Learning topics sharing, from beginner Tensorflow example to intermediate level implementation, including some interesting topics: Financial news summarization by NLP, Neural Network Study, Deep Learning implementation on computer graphic rendering.
There is also a sharing that Homing (Maps GDE) introduces the use of map and location intelligence technology to optimize the distribution plan, and how to use Data to help manage the software engineer team.
The last part of Day 1, we have invited the Customer Engineer, William, from Google Hong Kong to chat with the participants in Cantonese on any topics of Cloud.
The content of Day 2 includes the blockchain trading, scalable and maintainable architecture that Android developers must learn, hands-on workshop of webview & Unity bridging, and GraphQL Kotlin framework open sourced by Netflix.
There are also two Cloud topics about online gaming data insight and RTMP server on GCP as multiple platforms for Live Streaming.
In addition, Namrata’s "Novel lens to your problem" will share how the REDX methodology guide her team systematically to use AI technology to solve the noise problem even opening the windows.
There will be two Fireside chats later in the afternoon of Day 2! Googler Jecelyn from Malaysia will talk about Web Dev & Gender Diversity with participants in Cantonese. Also, Fung from Google Hong Kong & DevFest speaker Toru will talk about Android Dev topics in English!
Day 2 (Nov 27) 17:45 - 20:00
DevFest'21 GDG HK Closing Party@GatherTown
In addition to knowledge sharing, the most precious part of GDG events is Community! In the good old days in the offline events, the participants will naturally gather and chat in small group. It is so inspiring to meet the fellow who also love technology and pursue progress!
This year, we will use the online platform GatherTown to let every participants to network with others so naturally just as easy as offline event.
We will play games in GatherTown to give gifts, and use the Delvieroo HK$100 e-voucher to be given out at the conference (*please see the "Lucky Draw" details below) to order a take-away and virtual dinner together with other participants, speakers, GDG organizers!
We are going to give out the following prize for registered participants by prize quiz.
40 Google Developers commemorative gift pack "One T-shirt + random gift" (only mailed to Hong Kong address)
40 Deliveroo HK HKD $100 e-voucher (only applicable in Hong Kong area, and must be collected at Closing Party on Nov 27)
The above prizes will be evenly given out in the following 4 rounds prize quiz. Each person can submit multiple Feedback Forms per round, but each person has only one chance to draw in the same round. One won't win the prize again if one has won once in the previous round. Must fill in the event registered email address in the form.

Implementing DietNeRF in Flax/JAX Community Week
Alex Lau // English // Beginner // In this talk, Alex will walk you through our team's experience to implement DietNeRF (a recent research paper on neural rendering) in JAX framework during Flax/ JAX Community Week 2021. The talk will cover (1) the background of the project, (2) difficulties that we encountered, (3) the final demo that we built, and finally (4) highlight some of his takeaways from the experience.

Easy Implementation on Financial News Summarization by NLP
Thomas Chong // Cantonese // Beginner // #Machine Learning // Financial news somehow helps investors know the latest market movement and perform critical decision on the trading market. However, there are too many news on the Internet and we could not read the whole passage one by one which is very time-consuming. How could we automate this process and know the main idea in a short period of time? Therefore, in this tutorial, I will use NLP techniques to summarize the financial news with simple coding implementation so that even coding beginners can still try it out.
Supercharge Your Team with Software Engineering Analytics
Julius UY, Vice President of Engineering at Hubble & Jeff LEE, Data Engineer/Analyst at Hubble // English //
Beginner // Successful organizations tend to generate better decision quality in the optimal amount of time. In the age of information, data is your best friend. Data, not intuitions, must inform decisions. Hence, organizations must always be conscious around improving two important elements: the time to make decisions and the correctness of the decisions.
In this talk, we'll cover how Hubble addressed observability problems in the Software Engineering department and what data we are using to improve our internal processes
