This year, we have an incredible roster of experts coming to Montreal.
Subjects will be more varied than in prior years and we can’t wait to share with you the final agenda. Here is a sneak peek at some of the speakers and talks we have planned for you.
What is Vertex.ai all about?
In this talk, we’ll introduce you to Vertex.ai, an “optional-code” machine learning platform that enables you to train and deploy models on the Google Cloud Platform.
We’ll show you how to get started with Vertex.ai, train your datasets using no code, or some code, explore the most interesting parts of Vertex and finally deploy your models to production for the world to use!
Advantages of espresso tests automation how and why?
As engineers, it is good practice to maintain a healthy culture where we write both UI and unit tests. However, the biggest hurdle comes when you have to set up continuous integration; how do you ensure your tests don’t slow down builds from other pull requests hence slowing down the merge process..? What if I told you we found a tool and now run our UI tests nightly and on specific days? Join me, and let’s talk about how, why, and what tool we use.
Design for engineers: How to make your UI sizzle, or at least not embarrassing
Many development projects don’t have access to design resources so it falls on the engineers to make interfaces. This session will teach you practical tricks to improve the “feel” of your interface, decrease UX blocks, incorporate branding, and highlight resources you might be missing. As a bonus, we’ll cover a few several CSS/HTML tips to make “good design” easier to achieve.
Building Multi-Platform Projects with MVI Architecture
For modern applications, targeting multiple platforms has become table-stakes. That can be an insurmountable challenge for a team working on a project with limited resources. Kotlin Multiplatform is a promising solution to this problem, allowing you to target mobile platforms and the web.
The strength of Kotlin Multiplatform is that it allows you to write _native_ applications, unlike cross-platform frameworks like React-Native and Flutter. While having access to native APIs can lead to a superior user experience, you need to be careful to avoid code duplication.
We’ve decided to embrace the Kotlin multiplatform approach at my company, convinced it will help us build better quality products. And in this talk, I will show how we’ve used MVI architecture patterns to help us maximize code sharing.
Building mobile apps at scale
This talk will cover how to scale up your team and development process to serve millions of users. You’ll learn how to ship fast while maintaining a very high level of reliability, reduce tech debt while continuing to ship new features, and handle issues in production like a pro.
Whether you work for a startup or a unicorn, you’ll be able to immediately apply techniques to take your development process to the next level.
Naveen Nigam, the head of developer ecosystems at Google is going to talk about inclusive design.
