Success is great! But there's always room for improvement. Mistakes were made. Lessons were learned. Regrets were had. Two years, hundreds of elements, and thousands of apps later, we've got a pretty good idea what makes an element and an app great, and what's changing in Polymer 2.0 as a result. Come hear what this means for the Polymer Elements, your elements and your apps, in a new episode of the Meownica show!

Instead, these can become opportunities to forge meaningful exchanges that leverage users' mental models of how everyday conversations unfold. This talk will frame a new way of approaching fallback and repair, in which so-called errors become organic turns in the dialog. We will provide design tips for your action logic to allow the conversation to move forward naturally.

A recent Google study shows the average ad takes 4 seconds to load on a mobile device. When ads are slow, chances are users won't see or engage with them. The AMP Ads Initiative was launched to help fix advertising on the web, making it faster and easier to connect with users at the right moment with the right experience. In this session, lead product manager on the AMP Ads Initiative Vamsee Jasti and tech lead Michael Kleber will share how the AMP Project is making advertising better for all.

In our new era of computing where advancements in conversational UIs and artificial intelligence are enabling users in new ways, it's easy to be tempted to take an existing visual-based app or GUI and simply 'convert it to voice'.

If you are approaching accessibility for the first time, the sheer breadth of the topic can leave you wondering where to start - after all, working to accommodate a diverse range of abilities means there are a correspondingly diverse range of issues to consider. This talk will explain how to effectively review a site for accessibility and how to build accessibility considerations into your team process so each team member knows their role, and has the appropriate training material. The goal is for attendees to walk away with an actionable process which they can immediately use to assess and improve their products' accessibility and overall user experience.

This session will cover a new approach that allows you to architect your persistence layer in a much more robust and scalable way, benefiting from the full power of SQL without sacrificing compile-time code guarantees. We'll also discuss approaches and features that make offline persistence easier. Be sure to also check out the other two 'Architecture Components' sessions for more information on architecting better Android applications.

Tools now need to evolve to help developers utilize this quantum-leap in web development. Learn about the powerful tools the Polymer team has built for all Web Components developers, enabling turn-key creation, testing, and optimization of Web Component-based PWA's. We'll take a deep dive into this brand-new suite of tools like the Polymer CLI, Linter, Bundler and IDE plugins.

That's where Firebase comes in. We'll demo how to use Remote Config to release a feature to a limited number of users. Then we'll use Analytics and Crash Reporting to ensure the feature works correctly before releasing it to everyone else. This is how we used Firebase to monitor the roll out of the Santa Tracker Android app to over a million users.

Every time your app takes long to respond, does not render smoothly, or does not perform well you risk losing users. We all know tracking and understanding performance issues is hard, which is why so many apps are affected by them. Today, we announced Firebase Performance Monitoring, a brand new feature in Firebase that allows you to gain detailed insight into the performance of your app. These insights are highly contextual to actions in your app and are attributed to factors including devices, countries and app versions. What used to be a painstaking effort is now as simple as including an SDK, and making a few API calls!

Dealing with network latency, managing code size, and serving content to users across the globe in just a few seconds is not an easy task. Firebase Hosting has powerful tools like a global CDN cache, HTTP/2, and now a dynamic way to generate content to help you get your page loaded and painted on the browser fast. Come join and pull up the Chrome Dev Tools. This talk will teach you how to profile slow loads and use Firebase Hosting features to speed them up.

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) offers five APIs that provide access to pre-trained machine learning models with a single API call: Google Cloud Vision API, Cloud Speech API, Cloud Natural Language API, Cloud Translation API and Cloud Video API. Using these APIs, you can focus on adding new features to your app rather than building and training your own custom models. In this session we'll share an overview of each API and dive into code with some live demos.

Conversation is systematic, but to the surprise of many technologists, this conversational principle actually defies the rules of formal logic. So come find out the non-literal truth of everyday back-and-forths; take advantage of this principled, built-in 'hack' of spoken language; and delight your users with the intuitive ease of everyday conversation.

Join us (a designer and UI developer) as we use the Flutter UI framework to evolve a UI concept from prototype to production code. You'll leave this talk with a deeper understanding of how to bridge the gap between designers and UI developers through a prototyping-centric workflow, and why using a single framework between designers and developers helps your team work more efficiently.

But, there are times when it's necessary to present content in a two-dimensional way. With VR, we have the opportunity to reevaluate the nature of screens, and how we view and interact with screen-based content. This talk will cover techniques the Daydream team uses to create legible, usable screen interfaces in VR. We will introduce new workflows, new units, and highlight interaction opportunities and pitfalls.

You can easily move the neural network model to Android and run the prediction inside mobile phones, to do many AI tricks things like image recognition, motion recognition and etc. But the challenges are the model size and CPU consumption. The models usually takes tens of megabytes, and also consumes CPU power for neural network prediction. In this session, we will discuss tips and tricks to overcome those challenges to bring the latest AI technology to production Android app.

Several new APIs (OffscreenCanvas, ImageBitmap and more) are geared at increasing graphics throughput and smoothness in applications that rely on the HTML canvas element. The possibilities offered by the new APIs range from simple performance tricks to powerful programming paradigms, such as asynchrony, multi-threading and transfer semantics. The target audience is web developers already familiar with WebGL or 2D canvas.

In this presentation, you'll watch how a single developer, live on stage, uses Flutter and Firebase to build two real native apps from a single codebase. This is real! Along the way you'll learn how to build beautiful cross-platform UIs with Flutter, how you can paint your app to life with Flutter's sub-second hot reload dev experience, and how to use the Firebase SDK with Flutter.

One year later, we'll walk you through what's new in Lighthouse and how it's evolved into a companion for modern web development. We'll cover using Lighthouse in different environments (Node CLI, Chrome DevTools, WebPageTest, headless Chrome) and ways you can extend Lighthouse by authoring custom audits to run against your own site.
