Title: Mapreduce is dead - long life to Dataflow

Abstract: The talk explains what Google Cloud Dataflow, one of the latest released products of the Google Cloud Platform.Dataflow is the result of many years of research on data processing models done internally at Google,and it has the power to revolutionize how you process your own data now. 

We will cover the basics of MapReduce, then point out some of the limitations of the model, and showhow Dataflow solves all of them. 
The goal of the session is to give you an understanding of the possibilities the Google Cloud Platformoffers in terms of Big Data processing. Google has been doing this for more than a decade, and wewant everyone to share the experience.

Dart Code Lab, with Google's Dart team
April 27, San Francisco

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dart-code-lab-tickets-16104627374

Come to the Dart Code Lab to have fun, play with Dart, and meet engineers from Google's Dart team and other Dart programmers! You must know how to program, but no previous knowledge of Dart is required.

During this Code Lab you will have the opportunity to explore Dart on the client side or the server side—or both. You will go through the process of building one or two simple applications in Dart, using Dart tools such as Dart Editor. The finished web application will run in all modern browsers and, together with the server-side part, will be ready to deploy.

For March we have two talks touching on and entrepreneurial opportunities and challenges in the Silicon Valley tech industry.

Schedule:

6:00-6:50pm Networking and light food

6:50-7:00pm Announcements

7:00-7:30pm The IoT Landscape with Mary Vincent

7:30-8:30pm Startup Strategies with Ellen Leanse


The IoT Landscape: Mary Vincent will discuss her wearable computing/IoT initiatives, current drivers, challenges/opportunities, privacy/security, and interesting wearables/IoT opportunities for the future.

Startup Strategies: What can we learn from the teamwork and balance of some of the Valley's brightest companies as they set their early path? How did the synergy of engineering, market-facing, and operational talent create something stronger than more homogeneous teams could have built? Using examples and "insider" stories collected from Silicon Valley over the last three decades, this presentation will focus on how diverse perspectives strengthen entrepreneurial traction, increasing the likelihood of success. It will also touch upon what engineers should look for in non-technical partners and how healthy role boundaries actually support the collaborative process. Expect a lively, action-oriented dialog that will show you technical initiatives benefit from diverse perspectives across competencies, backgrounds, gender, and experience.



Mary Vincent is an experienced entrepreneur and co-founded a wearables company, leading global wearable computing architecture innovation, integration, testing, quality and technical engagement. Her startup was accepted into the Intel Make it Wearable Semifinals, two Startup Incubators, and she presented in Shenzhen China and Taipei Taiwan, Keiretsu Womens Forum, Draper University, Silicon Valley China Wireless, and was selected as a Delta Techcrunch Innovator.


Ellen Leanse brings 35 years of experience to her work with entrepreneurial companies and leaders. A veteran of early Apple, Google, Facebook application development, and three startups, Ellen has also consulted to more than 40 technology companies – early stage to global leaders including Facebook, Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, and Google.

As Apple's first User Evangelist, Ellen led the company's earliest online outreach and community-building. Her work since then has focused on bringing companies and customers closer together "by design," mapping unique frameworks for creating value and mutual benefit.

The first and one of the largest GDGs in the world
Introduction
Google Developer Group (GDG) Silicon Valley meets on the first Wednesday of the month at the GooglePlex in Mountain View. The typical meeting format is registration and light dinner fare between 6:00 and 7:00pm. We invite our members that develop applications using Google technology to do brief demos of 5 minutes or less between 6:30 and 6:55pm. The main meeting starts with general announcements at 6:55pm. This is followed by a technical presentation and/or demonstration of one or more Google technologies from 7:00 to 8:00pm. The time between 8:00pm and 9:00pm is available for longer talks, extended Q&A and/or more informal networking before everyone heads home.

Our meetings will always be free and open to the general public. We will sometimes co-host a joint meeting with the Silicon Valley Web JUG (Java User Group) like we did for our Google Web Toolkit inaugural meeting on January 15th, 2008.

Disclaimer: GDG Silicon Valley is an independent group; our activities and the opinions expressed here should in no way be linked to Google, the corporation.
