I attended this year’s Google I/O and to no surprise, there wasn’t a lot of Google Cloud going on there. For that we have Google Cloud Next coming up soon. Stay tuned to hear about my experience there as well.

Since there wasn’t much cloud (it’s always sunny in California…


Today we at @GDGVancouver (GDG Cloud Vancouver) had our event “A day with Machine Learning” which was an effort from the team to educate our members about Machine Learning Crash Course using TensorFlow. …


tl;dr; What are you waiting for? Get on the plane or be left behind in dust.

Let’s start from the very beginning. When the event was announced, the branding was totally different. Rather than being GCP Next, it was now Google Cloud Next. Hmm.. …


Cause when you listen, you improve.

Let’s begin with a short introduction for those of you who have been living under book racks or server racks.

Tensorflow: A library which helps you make sense of your data

Kubernetes: A platform to help manage your compute resources

It’s love. Always add some. Enjoy!

Building a startup is very easy. You can do it too. Let’s do it.

  • Define a problem

Congrats to Angular-Material team. Finally a stable version of Angular Material is out. For the lovers of Material Design and Angular this is a bliss.

Various interesting features:

  • Lots of commonly used elements out of the box
  • Responsive design for all screen resolutions
  • Fluid layouts and elements alignments
  • Great typography using Roboto Font
  • Easy and Multiple Themes support
  • Total Angular support by making use of services and directives

Even though the framework lacks Tables which is one of the majorly used element on the web, the discussions have already started for the same and we should expect it soon.

With all these features, it is easily one of the best UI frameworks to start with. For those who are using bootstrap along with Angular and feel limited by Angular-Bootstrap, this is a great option to switch to. I am on it! Where are you?
