Our June Meetup Mobile Themed Go!

Jun 15, 2017 · Pyrmont, Australia

Hey gophers! We are super excited to be at Google for our June Meetup!

Food and Drinks supplied all thanks to the amazing Dgraph and Naviro teams, in the form of Pizza and Beer / Soft drinks. 

*Its on level 5, but we've got an after hours pass organised so we can engage the lift (there are also stairs if you are feeling fit lol). You come out of the lifts and immediately turn left and you're there.*

Talk 1 - Hemanta Sapkota - Title: Golang & React Native: My experiences using Go and React Native in production apps


Mobile apps engineer with interests in web services, distributed architecture & decentralized peer-to-peer networks ( blockchain ). I love Go. Some of things that I've built on Go:


Brief of the talk

Creating cross-platform mobile apps with native UX have always had a few challenges, most important of which, separating domain-specific logic with UX. 

With the release of the Gomobile package, embedding libraries created with Go became a possibility. Go running in the devices is perfect for some of the mobile apps specific use cases. Example: A reliable concurrent service for chat, real-time notifications, & device push notifications. 

React Native is a framework from Facebook for creating cross-platform apps in Javascript & is gaining incredible momentum at the moment.

Golang's concurrency features with React Native's efficient UX composition is the perfect combination for creating robust cross-platform apps with minimal resources.

In this talk, I'll go through how I was able to use Golang and React Native to singlehandedly develop & manage both of our apps ( IOS & Android ) at OpenLearning. 

Talk 2 - Sunil Gopinath - Title: Go + GraphQL

Been working as a Go developer for 1year now and have been working with GraphQL for the last 7 months.

Talk Subject: I will be talking about how to use GraphQL to mobile optimize your application through declarative data fetching. At it's core, GraphQL is a query string that is sent to the server to be interpreted. This powerful technique not only simplifies coding but allows assets to be loaded quickly on a device, even on a slower network.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
