About this event

For our first meet-up of the year we have a talk on code review culture by Pamela Hill and a talk about MLKit by Mbalenhle Ndaba who were both speakers at Devfest South Africa at the end of last year. 🤖

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! Whats new in 2019

18:15 - 18:45 - Toward a better code review culture - Pamela Hill

A healthy code review culture can produce several positive results: improved communication, better software quality, and mutual accountability. But an unhealthy code review culture can break down individuals and a team. Pamela will discuss her own experiences with code reviews, and give tips on how to encourage a healthy code review culture in your team.

18:40 - 18:45 - Small Breather

18:45 - 19:30 - How I built an App with Machine Learning capability using Firebase MLKit - Mbalenhle Ndaba

Machine Learning is one of the most popular and interesting topics in tech at the moment. Everyone is talking about it, everyone wants to use it. I will be using the Firebase MLKit (beta) to build an app that leverages the power of Machine Learning. I will be sharing my experience of using Firebase MLKit, from how easy it was to integrate it, to the challenges I came across, as well as the limitations of Firebase MLKit and how to work around them.
