Writer: Jessica Nathania
Last Saturday morning (30 July 2022) the event at the ISTTS Surabaya campus invited great speakers to fill the Extended I/O event organized by the GDG (Google Developers Group) community in the city of Surabaya. This is the tenth time this event has been held in Surabaya with Mrs. Esther Irawati, a lecturer at ISTTS representing GDG Surabaya.
This event was enlivened by 12 speakers from various directions. One of them is Janise Tan, Google Developer Ecosystem Regional Lead in Southeast Asia covering Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and surrounding areas. Janise gave a warm welcome to the 150 participants who attended that day. He also gave a quiz with prizes for participants who could answer questions about the annual event.
The I/O event itself is known as input output where Google speakers provide output in the form of the latest technology around the web, mobile, and machine learning. Meanwhile, participants can provide input in the form of output from complaints or difficulties encountered in using Google products. This term is also known as innovation in the open.
On that occasion, Mr. Ferdi as the vice chancellor of ISTTS also gave a speech and implied a message so that each participant would not only become a consumer but could become an application producer in the future.
Furthermore, the event runs with sessions given by speakers from Google and developers who use Google products such as Android, Angular, Firebase, and other features used to design applications.
Sidiq Permana, a Google Developer Expert who has been contributing to the community since 2004 is also an entrepreneur. Sidiq is very passionate about sharing his knowledge about the development of the Android 13 OS, dubbed the Tiramissu meal.
"The thing that is certain from SE is uncertainty," said Sidiq. Just in the midst of the progress of the existing OS, the speed and creation of an application is a trade off. But behind that, there is an increase in security and performance on offer. One of the trade offs faced by Android technology users in Indonesia is battery devices.
This OS detects an inactive application that has not been used for 8 days, it will be marked as put in the standby bucket and cannot provide notifications.
Furthermore, the deputy governor of East Java gave his speech to the future of the nation's builders, the technology lovers who even the youngest reached the age of 12 years. This invites anticipation and enthusiasm from the other participants.
In addition, an ISTTS alumnus who is currently working at GDP also brought material about using Angular together. This application is called Catapa, an application built using features from Angular is useful for employee attendance and payroll at the company. One of the advantages of Angular is that it is a reactive program where when the state will change it is notified and the display will be changed.
Kak Fajar from the green lapak, Tokopedia also considers the importance of testing on applications that will be released for use by users.
Sis Eka from Google also talked about the latest development of CSS for web design which can be very helpful for developers, cascade layers. Layers that can be built based on their layers can solve which style is used as a base or basic, which one is for customization.
At the end of the event the participants were divided into several rooms for study sessions. Where in this session you can learn about the fields of interest and participants who are new to technology can ask questions about the topic.
Janise says, "If you want to go fast alone, but if you want to go far go together. GDG is a community to go together and have fun doing it." He said this community aims to share and share with each other so that everyone can develop towards their best potential in a cool way.
