About this event

In this workshop, we’ll step outside of our Android comfort zone and create a conversational user experience using the Google Assistant running on our phones.

We’ll manipulate the world around us with Internet of Things (IoT) hardware. Get ready to learn a taste of Kotlin-based Google Actions fulfillment with Google’s AppEngine, the Particle Photon Arduino platform and possibly Newton’s Laws of Motion as they pertain to Ping Pong balls! (BYOL - bring your own laptop with either a built-in USB-A port or a USB-C/USB-A adapter)
