We had 30 people come out on Saturday, Nov. 4th to enjoy talks and hands-on coding sessions with subjects ranging from design & development experiences, Bootstrap, the Redux pattern, WebXR with A-Frame and VR.js, Angular 5, Janitor, and of course great socializing and informal discussion! Thanks to platinum sponsor Mozilla and gold sponsor Google for covering the costs of the space, food, and speaker gifts / door prizes--and especially thanks to our speakers for providing the amazing content for the day!

+GDG Sudbury​ is on the list!
Find and join a Google I/O Extended event in your area

Over 200 events have already been submitted to our map from all over the world; from Tokyo, to Mombasa, to Buenos Aires! And keeping up with the tradition, Sri Lanka is once again hosting three events for thousands of attendees.

Joining an #io17extended event is the perfect way to experience #io17 while connecting with your local developer community. I/O Extended events can give you the opportunity to:
- Meet and mingle with developers in your area
- Create valuable professional connections
- Interact first-hand with your local community leaders
- Participate in unique dev experiences like codelabs and hackathons
- Exchange ideas on the keynote and sessions in real-time

New this year: ALL I/O sessions will be livestreamed! This means you’ll be able to watch all your favorite sessions in-real time across #Android, #Firebase, #GooglePlay, #MobileWeb / #Chrome / #AMP, #Tango, #TensorFlow, #VR, and more!

Find an I/O Extended event near you: goo.gl/JStjqb.
Don’t wait too long though, #io17 is only 4 weeks away!

Perl and Progressive Web Apps? YES!

Progressive Web Apps are pretty cool, and for good reason: the idea is to take advantage of the advanced features of our web browsers to provide capabilities that rival native apps, while still offering good performance and functionality to users of other browsers.

However, if you've done much reading about PWAs, you could be forgiven for thinking they require a client-side JavaScript framework like React or Angular to be possible. So last week at the 2017 Evergreen International Conference, I demonstrated that it is possible to graft PWA attributes onto the Evergreen open source library system's classic Perl-based Template Toolkit web architecture--to the point of scoring 100/100 on Google's Lighthouse web site audit tool (starting from a baseline of 37/100).

You might enjoy my presentation, We aim to misbehave... Evergreen: Progressive Web App (yes, that's a Firefly reference) at https://coffeecode.net/evergreen-progressive-web-app.html, or you might enjoy poking around the code I posted in the corresponding branch at https://goo.gl/86ZzDH. Check out the new PWA examples directory for a README and the core examples.

It's far from perfect at this point, but as a proof of concept, I'm quite pleased, and I think it offers a possible vision of the way forward, particularly for the My Account section of the public catalogue, which really deserves to become its own app. If nothing else, it has refocused attention on enhancing Evergreen's web performance, and that can only be a good thing, right?

All right, I'm doubling down on refrigerating/freezing our maple syrup after getting lax about it for a little while. Didn't enjoy dumping over a cup of local syrup down the drain this morning after I noticed little islands of scum floating on the surface...

Women Techmakers Montreal 2017 will be amazing

My friend Laurence de Villers, the Women Techmakers lead for Montréal and organizer for GDG Android Montréal, asked me to pass on the opportunity to attend their event on April 1 & 2, 2017, to our community, as we're just a few hours away (road trip, anyone?). I have to say, the lineup looks incredible! Here's what Laurence had to say:

=========

We are pleased to invite you to the Women Techmakers Montreal 2017 event, a program created by Google to celebrate International Women’s Day and to highlight the talent of women in technology.

Last year’s single-day event had more than 200 attendees, 17 speakers and 7 sponsors. After such a huge success, we want to recreate this experience. This year's event will span two days--April 1st & 2nd 2017--at École de technologie supérieure in Montreal.

This year's theme is “Telling Our Story”. With 19 speakers chosen from 130 submissions, this edition will be amazing. The ticket includes: access to all sessions; swag; breakfast, lunch, snacks and coffee during both days; dinner on the first day; coat check; party; and daycare for children, if needed. Inside parking is available at the venue for $15/day.

This event is open to all (women and men) of 18+.

For more information and to buy tickets, please visit our website: http://www.wtmmontreal.com/
