Google Developer Group (GDG) Dublin, as part of the tech community, is always looking to help new group getting off the ground. For our September event, we will be helping Nigma to start their Dublin chapter.
Nigma [http://nigma.io] is a non-profit student developer community that was started with the aim to help bridge the cap between students in academia and those coming out to the workplace. With there being so many different areas of computing and technology stacks, it can not only be an intimidating experience but can be difficult to learn, especially with there being so much out there.

Talks:
My Minecraft-Smart-Home: Prototyping the Internet of Uncanny Things by Sascha Wolter.
Software solutions and everyday objects are becoming increasingly "smarter", take over more "responsibility" and know more and more about us and our intentions. But what does that mean for developers, and what impact does this have on the user? How do we convey the understanding and competence for this Internet of Things? Sascha Wolter covers typical IoT challenges and inspires with crazy and sometimes creepy examples. He also introduces a prototypic approach for hardware and software ideation based on visual programming languages, games like Minecraft, and several IDEs. Of course, it is shown that this pragmatic approach is also suitable for professional projects using IoT platforms and smart home solutions such as Google Weave, Eddystone Beacons, Eclipse SmartHome, or openHAB.

Sascha Wolter is a professional developer and user experience enthusiast with a passion for the Internet of Things in all flavors. He also works as a consultant, trainer, lecturer, keynote speaker, and author who focusses on understanding, innovation and value. Sascha is the founder of the User Group flashforum.de with more than 100,000 members, and as such he is committed to the interests of the user. After organizing internationally renowned events like beyond tellerrand from 2001 to 2011, he is now board member of the Usability & User Experience committee at the federal association BITKOM. When he is not tinkering with new soft- and hardware for Deutsche Telekom AG – Connected Home, he likes discovering the world together with his kids in an odd way.

Why Kakoune - The quest for a better code editor by Maxime Coste
As programmers, we spend most of our time in front of a code editor, such a basic part of our workflow matters a lot, and is worth
discussing. Through a live demonstration, well explore selection
oriented modal text editing and what makes Kakoune the best code
editor out there.
Maxime Coste is a video game technology programmer by day, Linux
enthusiast by night, and has been investing far too much free time
into writing the tool he spends most of his time working with: Kakoune.


The rest if the agenda to be completed.

Join us for our regular meeting. We'll have 3 talks:

-Signatures in the digital world by Aurelien Delaguillaumie.
Our world is having a digital transformation. A paper-based process is now computerized at the extend that we are trying to eradicate the use of paper. However, paper has a legacy workflow that is deeply embedded in our business workflow. Signature is one of those. In this presentation, we will speak about the past, present and future of Signature. Aurelien Delaguillaumie is working for DocuSign in Technical Support team and he's also a developer hobbyist since 2014 thanks to the GDG community who make him discover this new passion.

-Go-ing Places, Go in the travel industry by Paul Mooney, Architect at RyanairLabs. Paul is a Microsoft MVP with a proven track-record delivering exceptionally high-quality software across several industries.
Paul is creator of the Encrypted Token Web Security Design Pattern, and ARMOR, its .NET implementation. He is the #1-rated C# developer in Ireland according to GitHub Awards, a Microsoft Build 2013 Hackathon finalist, a contributing member of OWASP, and host of insidethecpu.com.
Paul focuses on solving complex technical problems while maintaining precise customer-focus.

-Rich and cross-platform add-ons by James Drew. The talk will cover how to build rich plugins. The basic idea is how to use Angular/React/etc to build Sidebar add-on, how to use ES6 in Google Scripts, and how to build cross-platform add-ons.

As alway, please make sure to have an EventBrite ticket for the event.

It's a shame that Allo is phone only and Hangouts will still exist. Reminds of the days using Google+ Messenger and having to switch back to Google Talk halfway through a conversation. They need to stop making separate chat apps and build on what they have. Allo features are amazing but should have been new features to Hangouts, not a separate app.

Prior to Google, Bret came from Texas, having worked in the cloud industry at Rackspace as a software engineer building the RackConnect hybrid hosting product.

a hypothetical particle that travels faster than light.

Story
Tagline
The oldest GDG in Ireland.
Introduction
Google Developer Group (GDG) Dublin meets on the last Tuesday of the month in Google HQ in Dublin. The typical meeting format is a 18:30 kick-off with some food, followed by talks and Q&A until around 20:30.

The group has a broad scope, covering issues from cloud to mobile and everything in between; while the group does have some bias towards the many innovative technologies developed by Google, the group is generally very open - this manifests in terms of interest in alternative and complementary technologies to those offered by Google, technologies which are not Google specific (eg HTML5) and engaging with other companies.

The group organizes a few different types of events. There is a regular monthly meeting held the last Tues of each month in Google's premises on Barrow St: this meet usually comprises of talks and/or panel sessions. The group also organizes hackathons and we are planning on arranging competitions and perhaps some bootcamp events.

The group's activities are generally free and all are welcome.

Disclaimer: GDG Dublin is an independent group; our activities and the opinions expressed on this +Page should in no way be linked to Google, the corporation.
