Automation with fastlane
How would you like 2 extra hours of your time back every week? All mobile app developers face similar workflows as they work to upload an app to the Play Store. Many of these processes are currently done manually, but why not automate them? Fabric’s set of developer tools, collectively called fastlane, makes building, testing, and releasing your app faster, reproducible and less troublesome, leaving developers more time to focus on feature code and not deployment! Learn how you can automate the tedious tasks to generate release notes, screenshots using screengrab and push your final submission straight to the Google Play portal effortlessly from your command line using supply with a powerful open source tool.

Google's Machine Learning Tools & How to Get Started
An overview of Google's open sourced Machine Learning tools. The talk will focus on how to use Google's off-the-shelf ML solutions for various problems and how developers can start developing using Tensorflow.
Code Lab: Up and Running with Tensorflow
Google open sourced Tensorflow in Nov 2015 and it has since been the most popular platform Machine Learning in academia as well as in IT companies. The session will introduce Tensorflow, teach you a few neat tricks to reuse vast open sourced resources for your own specific problems and help you get started with training your first model using Tensorflow! No ML background required.

Dealing with Legacy Code
Legacy code, a scary phrase to most, is all over the tech industry and Android is no exception. These days legacy code is commonly known as code that has been inherited, be it from one company to another or from some other source. This can usually lead to issues while maintaining and developing in these code bases but with the right strategies legacy code can be a little less painful.

Secure, Friendly, and Effective Authentication
Thinking about building an app that requires user sign-up? In research at Google and across the industry, we've found that over half of people seeing a sign-in screen will fail to authenticate, ranging from abandonment to making typos and creating duplicate accounts. Building a secure and usable auth experience is tricky. We'll present some suggestions and examples of ideas that you can apply in your app to reduce errors, drive account creation, and even enable automatic sign-in. And we'll illustrate it all with a ready-made open-source version that Google built for Firebase Auth, and talk about some the technologies used at Google for secure authentication.

Building Integrated Medical Apps
In some ways, medical apps are the final frontier of app development. There are plenty of amazing ideas out there, but for a medical app to truly shine it need to be connected to the rest of the health system in a useful way. Until recently this type of integration just wasn't possible, but things are finally changing. This talk will explore some early successes and failures in the world of medical apps, and dive into the emerging world of open healthcare data APIs and standards that app developers can use to create better apps.
