This time, we start early with the CfP for the DevFest 2016...
For now, there is no set date but feel free to already submit a topic if you already planned a talk (especially those that go on tour with it) and we will get back to you next year when we decide on the exact date. A good bet is that it will be again somewhen around November.
Please send us the details of your talk. DevFest 2016 Sessions day will be communicated once decided, timeframe will be November 2016. All that fill the CfP now will get contacted later in 2016 when we have an actual date to confirm if you are available or not. * Erforderlich. Bild ohne Titel ...

Go for the web

More and more people switch to Go for backend applications. One big area is web development and APIs. Go is a perfect fit for current microservice patterns by being simple and performant. In addition, with its great standard library and many third party packages Go is ready for the future. The next Go version will support HTTP/2 by default. In this talk we want to introduce you to how you can get started using Go in the web.

Thanks to +Ramón Medrano Llamas we will have a talk about Engineering Reliability at Google.

Building a useful application is part of the challenge. Scaling it up to size at Google is the other part, and it’s where SRE (Site Reliability Engineering) is coming into the picture. This talk gives an overview on the technologies and software design patterns that SREs use to make sure that Google’s applications run fast and reliable at full scale.

Hibernation over! New event coming up. Join us!
 
When developing our own small side projects or parts of larger projects at work, we've all encountered similar issues with development, so why not make use of our awesome community and talk about it! :)

This event is about sharing experiences and meeting like minded people. It is less formal than our other events, in that the idea here is that anyone can present their android projects and have open discussions about them.

If you would like to present your own project, please contact us and let us know. No project or idea is too small to be presented.

This Android Meet & Share is sponsored by ti&m AG.

The meetup is limited to 20 people. To attend please get your ticket here:

http://www.eventbrite.com/e/android-meet-share-tim-tickets-16173539492

Looking forward to seeing you there!

-----------------------------------------------------------

Note: Please come to the reception on the 5th floor.

Google Glass to borrow for a day for making a movie?

My name is Irina and I am a CS PhD student at University of Zurich. Does any of you know how I could get a Google glass for a movie project for a day? I am a Google Anita Borg 2014 scholar and, as part of my Outreach Program for Women in Computer Science, I am currently involved in making a movie to encourage high-school girls to study CS. This is a collaboration between me (as the owner of the script and main character of the movie :)) and the media department of the University of Zurich. The main goal of the movie is to promote Computer Science as a field of study, convey the idea that studying Computer Science is an amazing path, with great impact on both society and self, thus encouraging high-school students to choose CS. Therefore, I was thinking that some images including people using technology in every day life would perfectly fit, and the current ideas would be kids playing with smart toys, adults navigating home with their smartphones, old people being supported by smart tech. In addition, I would love to have the Google glass included as a gadget of every day life, if this is possible. The video is meant to be shown on the main university website, promoted at university fairs and in high-schools. Therefore, I am reaching out to you to ask if anybody knows how I could get a Google glass for just a day of shooting the video. Or, maybe you know somebody who could help me borrow it? I would need it on a day in December or January. Naturally, I will take great care of it and use it only for the purpose of the video. I do hope we can make this work, since I think it is that kind of piece of tech with great visual impact in such a movie. So, if you have any ideas how I could possibly borrow it, please get back to me: todoran@ifi.uzh.ch

Thanks a lot,
Irina

Automation Framework Essentials - Scale to performance

I will give you some insights from my experience working as a Software Engineer in Test during the past 10 years. I have seen many framework popping up and going down, often they come up with high promises but are fast proven wrong when they are used in the field under real world conditions in a complex system landscape with hundreds of applications working together. What are common pitfalls and how can you avoid them with using / developing the right tool set.

Virtual Reality with WebVR and Google Cardboard

With Google Cardboard there’s a cheap solution for bringing VR to your users – and it rocks!
In this talk I’ll show you how you can build WebGL apps that work nice on mobile and extend them to provide Virtual Reality for Google Cardboard and WebVR browsers (very, very, VERY experimental Chrome Builds) for the Oculus Rift and what you can do with them.
There shall be live code and a lot of showcase examples.

We have a carton full of Cardboards to hand out that you can actually enjoy the examples directly during the DevFest.

Machine Learning for Developers

Most developers these days have heard of machine learning, but when trying to find an 'easy' way into this technique, most people find themselves getting scared off by the abstractness of the concept of Machine Learning and terms as regression, unsupervised learning, Probability Density Function ...
