6:30pm FEATURED TALK: Hey Google, talk to me about Actions on Google

Abstract: Google recently launched Google Home, the first appliance that lets developers create Actions for Google Assistant. Actions allow developers to create a Voice User Interface (VUI) that carries on conversations and performs actions. We'll see just how easy it is to get started developing your own Actions and learning, what it takes to make a good conversational VUI, and explore where Google may be going with this technology.
