In the month of June we will be hosting a GDG event focused on Web Tech as that is what our community has been asking for. We will have Richard Young giving us a talk on Machine Learning in the browser and Mike Geyser who will be speaking about something Shinny 🤖Should be epic!
17:45 - 18:00 - Food and drinks are served, get comfy and prepare yourself to learn some new things!
18:00 - 18:15 - Welcome to GDG!
18:15 - 18:40 - Machine learning in the browser - Richard Young
Richard is a software developer with a passion for problem solving and anything web related. He considers himself somewhat of a polyglot programmer and has worked on systems that do everything from calculating optimal pizza toppings to teaching languages in the classroom using AI. Richard now works as a Research Engineer at IBM Research where he is helping to deliver innovative solutions to some of Africa's biggest challenges.
18:40 - 18:45 - Small Breather
18:45 - 19:30 - Light up the web with lit-html 🔥
What if I told you that building on the web could be easier? What if I told you that you didn't need complicated frameworks, confusing tools and convoluted builds? Let me introduce you to my little friend; lit-html 🔥. At only 3.5kb gzipped (⁉️) this miniscule framework leverages off of the modern web platform to make it efficient, expressive, and extensible.
In this code oriented talk, I hope to show how low friction it is to work with lit-html. Together we'll build a TodoMVC application, starting from first principles and ending with WebComponents - all with (almost) zero tooling. Come and see for yourself: the web can be easy, fun and lit 🔥 - Mike Geyser
19:30 - 19:45 - Giveaways and Thanks!
