About this event

GDG Cloud Vancouver invites you to join us in our Talk Night: Firebase and TensorFlow

Do you want to learn about Firebase? Do you want to learn about TensorFlow? GDG Cloud Vancouver invited experts from the Google Firebase team, Andriana Romero, and Brian Chen, for us to learn about Firebase. We have also invited Srishti, organizer of Women in Machine Learning Organization to talk about TensorFlow


Andriana Romero is an SWE on Firebase Extensions primarily focused on building seamless user experiences in Angular and RxJS. Her previous experience at SoFi included building web apps to React and the marketing site using progressive technologies like AMP and Polymer.

Brian Chen is a software engineer currently working on the Firebase SDKs across the web and mobile platforms. He’s also worked on Google Cloud Platform as a frontend engineer, using Angular and RxJS.

Srishti is currently a graduate student at Simon Fraser University where she develops visual algorithms for low power processing units. As an individual, she is a strong proponent of reproducible code, especially in academia.

Talk : What's new at Firebase

Learn how Firebase can help you build applications with powerful development tools, improve app quality and reliability, and grow your app so you can focus on the product. The team launched several new products and recent updates that we are excited to share with you.

Talk: Field guide to Contributing to Tensorflow

If you have never contributed to an open source project or you’re just getting started, TensorFlow(TF) is a great place to be. Remember, first contribution need not be a giant code. It can be as small as adding a missing link in a documentation. The talk will talk about best practices in open source, taking a sneak peak in TF Gitter Chatroom and talk about the process of first PR. The talk will also cover how TensorFlow 2.0 has made working with TF more convenient for developers.
