Google I/O '18

Here are my top 5 impressions on this conference.

Gmail - live sentence suggestion It looked like the way developers use intelligent code completion in an IDE when coding.
Google Photos: converting a photo has a document to pdf I have a paid app on my iPad called "Scanner for Me" but now I can use Google Photos instead. ;)
Google Assistant: bot makes a real call to book a restaurant dinner or a hair salon Wow! This feature, for me, is really a big innovation. My team is working so hard on building our bot which is able to have a continued conversation. Google is so good!
Google Maps: using Phone's camera to watch the direction When I saw a fox as a cicerone on the demo, I was thinking of Pokémon GO.
Google Lens: extract text from images I have heard a story from a friend of me that he had to use his app about "optical character recognition (OCR)" to scan and translate the texts into English whenever he saw texts in China. Google Lens would be a good helper for…

My impression of Google I/O 2016

I have not yet had a chance to attend this event but I just watched it on Youtube as usual. :)
Google Assistant You might be very familiar to Google Now if you're Android fan. I saw that Google Assistant is like an upgrade to Google Now. It looks smarter because we are able to make a conversation with Google rather than just saying "Ok Google" and getting the tasks done as Google Now. That means Google Assistant can understand our personal words in our contexts.

For example:
I: Who is Google CEO? Google: Sundar Pichai I: Show me his awards  => Here I don't need to say "Show me Sundar Pichai awards", because I don't know to pronounce his name correctly. :)
I am thinking about that we can compare Google Assistant to Siri of Apple. Google Home At Google I/O 2015 last year, Sundar mentioned about working on a exciting project with Internet of Things and I think Google Home is a result. Working with Google Assistant, Google home is a very smart and modern devi…

How to apply Lean - Kanban for your business

This is the topic of Scrum Breakfast meetup this time, speaker: Ms. Phuong Bui - Technical Project Manager of YOOSE Pte. Ltd.

Lean comes from Lean manufacturing is a method that focuses on elimination of wastes. In other words, this is a set of principles for archiving the quality, speed and customer alignment. The first time I knew about the term "Lean" is  from the book Software Craftsmanship. Sandro recommends if we want to transform our pet projects into a real business, we should get familiar with Lean Startup concepts.

In this talk, Ms. Phuong pointed out some major wastes includes information (ex: unclear requirements), processes (ex: waiting), physical environment and people. Knowing what the problems should be the best way to eliminate them.

The difference between Single item flow and Batch processing is the second main point; and it is the Lean's idea. Batch processing perform…

BarcampSaigon 2015

Barcamp Saigon is one of my most expected events of the year. This year, it took place at RMIT university. As usual, it brought many useful topics to the community. Here is all topics that I have attended. Scale it! - Lars Jankowfsky Lars is founder of 8bitrockr.com
How do we make a decision correctly? It is hard to know that until we try and measure it. He gave an example about how good an app was. And, most of people thought that the app with nice user interfaces is good at the first look. But it is not correct because it is only true until we try to use it, even the nice GUI app sometime is not good at UX, functionalities, etc.
The key of success for working in team is collaboration. We can not only base on the experience of members likes: "In my opinions| As I know.... this is the best way..bla..bla.." but we should test it. Therefore, manually testing as well as automation testing is more and more necessary nowadays.
"Don't think, just try" - he said. She…

Agile Tour Vietnam 2015 in HCMC

I had a chance to join this event today. It was great! Agile Tour Vietnam 2015 in HCMC

For who don’t know Agile Tour, the following is the basic information from http://at2015.agiletour.org/ “Agile Tour has been a way for enthusiasts of Agile to spread the word about Agile practices and to share their experiences, both good and bad, within their local community. These non-profit events occur every year in October and November in several cities.” Many valuable topics were shared to the community. The topic I like best is “Software Craftsmanship” from Mr. Sandro Mancuso. “Software craftsmanship” is an approach to software development that emphasizes the coding skills of the software developers themselves (wikipedia). I would like to share with you my notes about it: Agile is actually “a quick feedback loop”. For example, we review the user stories after 2 weeks, we will get feedback; we apply TDD, we will  get feedback immediately, etc.Scrum, a Agile framework, is one main stream of Agile’s …
