Title: No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA  

CAPTCHAs are an integral part of fighting spam on the internet. Google’s reCAPTCHA is the largest CAPTCHA service in the world. With the shift to mobile, there is an increasing need to fight spam in that space. However, traditional CAPTCHAs are not well suited for mobile form factors. In response, the reCAPTCHA team recently launched a completely reimagined API that lets users pass the CAPTCHA test with just a single click. This “No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA” dramatically simplifies the mobile user experience. In this talk we will discuss the technology behind the magic “No CAPTCHA” followed by spam stats observed by reCAPTCHA over the internet. 

BIO: Ying Liu is a software engineering manager at Google. She works on web spam fighting and online collaborations effort in Google Streetview. She is passionate about fighting spam and making life easier for internet users.

Title: Uncomplexify your app with Polymer Starter Kit 

In this day and age, just getting started with a new project is a huge process. What build tools should you use? How will you deal with offline caching? What about storing data and user authentication? On the Polymer team, we've been working on a set of tools and scaffolds to make starting your next project pain free. In this session I'll introduce you to Polymer Starter Kit, and demonstrate how to combine it with amazing services like Firebase, and new standards like Service Worker for offline storage and sync. With these new tools, we're going to remove complexity from your dev environment and get you back on track building your next great idea. 

BIO: Rob Dodson - Developer Advocate at Google working with the Polymer and Chrome teams - Mountain View, CA 

Rob Dodson is a developer advocate at Google where he focuses on Polymer and Web Components. In previous roles he’s helped craft design systems for massive enterprise companies, user interfaces for console titles, and even built the occasional enchanted princess game. These days his mission is to fight for a better web and to help developers build great experiences.

The M preview program is designed to allow developers to test their applications and report any issues to us as quickly as possible so we can build a better, more robust platform. We’ve established a priority window for bug reporting that runs until late June, and during this period, we’ll prioritize developer-reported issues and feedback and work to address them.

Therefore, we encourage all Android developers to join the M preview program and do compatibility testing on their apps. Please refer to the Feedback & Support section to give us your feedback!

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.
