Shine is super proud to announce that senior consultant Ben Teese (@benteese) will be speaking at the YOW! Conference being held in Melbourne on the 3rd and 4th of December 2015.

Ben will actually be co-presenting this one with Sam Ritchie (@FakeSamRitchie), an iOS developer from Perth. Sam will be talking about ReactiveCocoa, while Ben’s topic will be React Native, an innovative new framework that applies the principles of the React web development library to native mobile application development.

The focus of the talk will be on the functional programming techniques that both of these frameworks use (uni-directional dataflow in the case of React Native, functional reactive programming (FRP) in the case of ReactiveCocoa).

If you haven’t purchased a ticket to YOW! Conference yet, be sure to get one whilst they’re still available. And if you’re already coming, be sure to check out Ben’s talk and say hi afterwards – Ben is always keen to chew the fat on all things developer related!

Screen Shot 2015-10-16 at 12.29.32 pmYou may have already read our previous post here about Shine’s Pablo Caif & Graham Polley being nominated to become ‘Google Developer Experts‘ (GDE).

Well, today Shine are proud to announce that both guys have been officially awarded the braggable title of GDE, and we’d like to congratulate them on this mighty big achievement!

Becoming an expert, meant undergoing a stringent evaluation and interview process, as well as being nominated by a Google employee, authorised by the Google Developers team, and all based on the special contribution they make to their field.

Their acceptance to the program makes them only the second and third GDEs in Australia. AWESOME! You can check out Pablo’s official profile here, and Graham’s here. Once again, congrats to you both!

Shine are delighted to announce that our very own Pablo Caif, and Graham Polley have both been nominated to become part of the Google Developer Expert program!

Becoming an expert, means undergoing a stringent evaluation and interview process, as well as being nominated by a Google employee, authorised by the Google Developers team, and all based on the special contribution they make to their field.

If you’ve been following our blog, then you’ll know that the guys have been doing some awesome work for our client Telstra using the Google Cloud Platform. In particular, they’ve been building scalable big data solutions using bleeding edge technology tools like BigQuery and Dataflow. In addition to building these cool solutions, they’ve both been blogging, and giving talks on their experiences.

The Dataflow engineering team decided it was high time that both Pablo and Graham should be acknowledged for their contribution to the Google cloud platform, and decided to nominate both of them. Their nominations have been submitted for the Cloud Platform category, which will in fact make them the first developer experts in that category in Australia! WOW!

We’d like to wish Graham and Pablo all the best with their application, and hopefully they’ll be awarded the braggable title of ‘Google Developer Expert’ in the not so distant future!

Video of ‘Big Data the Cloud Way’ presentation now available

Video of the recent ‘Big Data the Cloud Way’ presentation by Shine’s Graham Polley and Shane Neubauer is now available.

In it, Graham and Shane talk about how they used both the Google and Amazon cloud stacks at Telstra to query massive quantities of data in super-fast times using regular SQL queries.

In a world of exponentially-growing datasets, we think these technologies have tremendous potential for businesses because they make large-scale data analytics easy and affordable. If you want to learn more, check out the video!
