Getting Started with Polymer | Mastering Android ConstraintLayout GDG Johannesburg will host two talks in October: Talk 1: Getting Started with Polymer (20min) TBA Speaker: Mike Geyser Speaker Bio: Mike Geyser is a programmer at BBD in the R&D team, specialising on designing and building for the web. He’s been hacking on the web since Geocities was a thing, has a long-lived love affair with JavaScript, and has (almost) come to terms with the fact that he will never have a programmer beard. While he has worked on some interesting large-scale enterprise applications, it is the challenges of the public web that really appeal to him - having earned his stripes on high volume transactional websites. He works primarily in JavaScript, C# and Java, and seldom refers to himself in the third person. Talk 2: Mastering Android ConstraintLayout (45min) In this talk, Rebecca will demonstrate how to use ConstraintLayout when building Android Apps and some cool tricks you can do with it. From simplifying complex layouts to creating animations, ConstraintLayout has some really great usages. Speaker: Rebecca Franks Speaker Bio: Rebecca Franks the Android Engineering Lead at DVT. She has over 5 years experience in developing Android applications. In March 2016, she was awarded with the status of Google Developer Expert for Android. In her spare time, she works with Book Dash – a Non Profit Organisation – developing an Android app to showcase their free children’s books.
