Let’s talk UI for a bit.
We have international speakers! We have the chance to welcome Jolanda Verhoef and Joey Kaan from Coolblue coming straight from Rotterdam to talk to use about something they have put together for their app.

And also from the Netherlands, GDE (Google Developer Expert) for Android and Product Strategy/Design, Wiebe Elsinga will come and talk to us about how to make your user happy.

And more interestingly, why are there no native design systems? They propose a solution and will walk you through their sample code.
– 20h30: How do you satisfy your users? How do you make your app users happy?
But who are my app users, and what do they do with my app or want to see happen?
Wiebe Elsinga will share his experience on how to satisfy your users and improve the user experience.

• What we’ll do
That time of the year is upon us once more, Google I/O 2018 will start on May 8th and we would like to hold the yearly event so that we can all learn the new that will be announced from Google’s ovens by watching the live streaming of the keynote.
And this year again we are very fortunate to be able to host this event at the awesome room in Google Brussels offices.

It will be a great time to geek out, discover what new stuff they’re working on and after the keynote network and talk about all of that in a fun atmosphere and accompanied by some food and drinks, probably some swag … and I may have heard something about some raffle at the end to win some prices, only one way to know for sure!

Agenda:
– 18h30: doors are open, welcome and have a seat
– 19h00: livestream of the keynote
– 20h30: food and networking
– 22h00: the end

So if you want to be part of this, register and come on over.
As usual, please update your RSVP if you can’t come so that we have a good idea of who is coming, this helps us very much with the organisation.

See you there !

Cheers,
Yannick
