About this event

Build Actions for Your Community with the Google Assistant!

Come out and learn together how to build a conversational voice interface for the Google Assistant on Google Home, Android, Wear OS, Android Auto, etc.

This event is completely FREE and open to all! You don't need to have any programming experience to participate (but even experienced developers should come ready to learn a lot)!

We will have big group instructional presentations in the morning and small group hands-on time in the afternoon. The goal is to build an "action" or skill for any community you're involved in (like a professional network, interest group, or your hometown) using the Google Assistant platform.

All you need to bring is a laptop.

CRi will be providing breakfast pizza, coffee, and juice!

Buildertrend will be providing Varsity's pizza & salad for lunch as well as a happy hour at the end of the day!

GDG Omaha will provide snacks, swag, and raffle prizes!
