We visited GDE Summit 2019 and Cloudinary

November 06, 2019

At the end of October we had the opportunity to attend the annual event that Google organizes for the Developer Experts in Sunnyvale, California. After the event we met part of the Cloudinary team, whose tools and services we have often used to do performance reviews. It was also the first time the PerfReviews team met in person since we started the project (Joan is based in Barcelona and Jose is in Stockholm).

Google Developer Experts Summit 2019

There were more than 500 attendees to the event, including GDEs and Google employees

It was our first time attending this event where we learned more about PWA, Chrome Extensions, Google Chrome and Machine Learning.

But above all we met many other colleagues in the web world and shared experiences. It gave us the feeling that the Web is still very much alive and that there is a very large community of developers that are essential to advocate for best practices.

Visit to Cloudinary

Cloudinary is a service that is very helpful for serving images and videos optimally. With them we talk about their Media Developer Experts program and the great work they are doing to generate videos dynamically with different formats, quality and aspect ratios with auto-cropping (more info on their blog).

It is always interesting to meet the people who work creating these tools and live first hand the culture that is breathed in their office. Thank you for receiving us!
