From Google

Jen is a Developer Advocate on Cloud at Google. In this role she helps developers build cool stuff on all sorts of platforms. If she’s away from her laptop, she’s probably skating around a roller derby track, or hanging from aerial silk.


track.6 Big Data & Machine Learning

Exploring open data with BigQuery


Big data is powerful. It helps you make informed decisions about your business, but putting it to use can be time consuming. There's nothing worse than taking the time to build out a dashboard only to realize that it isn't useful.

In this session Jen Tong, a Developer Advocate on Google Cloud Platform, will show you how cloud computing makes it easier to explore big data. She'll use Google BigQuery to poke around some really big data sets including the GDELT news database, Wikipedia logs, and weather data going back to 1929.

You'll leave knowing how to use the cloud to effectively explore all that valuable data you've been logging.

track.9 Mobile & IoT

Zero to App - Live coding an Android app on Firebase in Kotlin


Firebase and Google Cloud Platform together help developers build extraordinary mobile and web apps. In this session, I'll craft an app live on stage and demonstrate how to create a great user experience using Firebase. I'll then extend this app by calling into Google Cloud Platform APIs, without having to spin up servers or manage infrastructure. You’ll experience firsthand how easy it is to build with Firebase, and how easy it is to scale with Google Cloud.
