What’s Classroom? The Google Classroom Series is a project designed to expose underrepresented groups of engineers to Google’s technology, development, and engineering principles through workshops and hands-on tutorials. For this Classroom, Google is excited to partner with the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Region Six Professionals and Seattle Girl Geek Dinners.

Dart. What? At Google we create some of the world’s largest, most complex, and rapidly changing web apps. Dart helps developers productively build high-performance apps for the modern web. Developed with the goals of simplicity, efficiency, and scalability, the Dart language combines powerful new features with familiar language constructs into a clear, readable syntax. But, Dart’s not just a language. The Dart open-source project also includes libraries, a package manager and tools such as a full featured editor.

During Night 1 of this Classroom, Google engineers will walk through Dart’s powerful new features and shine light on where we’re looking to go. RSVP only required.

Participants of Night 2 of the Classroom, will be walked through a Code Lab initially run at Google I/O. You’ll get hands-on experience and build declarative, modern mobile web apps with Dart and Web Components. Go from zero to magnificent! We want attendees to have fun as well as leave empowered and armed with new skills! RSVP and application required.

We hope you’ll join us! Dart Classroom is open to all qualified engineers with a passion for coding. We encourage you to RSVP and/or apply now as seats are sure to go fast.

RSVP for night 1 and/or apply for night 2 by Friday, June 28th. Applicants for night 2 will be notified of their application status by Wednesday, July 3rd.

Topic of the evening:

User Experience Design: the way of the Geek Artist
The best of both worlds. How minimalist design aesthetic and “form becomes function” make apps fast and elegant as well as usable, and how having geek skillz lifts a designer out of the “make it pretty” ghetto in product teams.

About the Speaker:
Dorothy Nelson is a User Experience Design Manager at Google. She has been programming and designing user-focused front end interfaces since the mid 1980s, from Bell Communication Research and Oracle to uber-dot-bomb Webvan, then to eBay (designing the selling experience) and Google. In her spare time, Dorothy enjoys traditional “dirty-hands” arts involving charcoal and ink and the non-traditional art of Silly Putty sculpture, as well as horsing around with her non-artistic but lovable husband and Yellow Labradors.
Please find street parking as Google cannot provide parking. There should be plenty of parking options with the lots, street and garages.
