GDG I/O Extended KL: My First CodeLab

GDG I/O Extended KL: My First CodeLab

Today I did some public speaking. Well actually alot of public speaking at I/O Extended KL.  This event was held at APU (Asia Pacific University), a really cool local university full of geeks like me (but waaay younger). 

In the morning I was asked to talk at a Women Techmakers Fireside Chat and I just shared a bit about technology and how there should be more women coders. 

In the afternoon,  I ran my CodeLab with Norman my coding partner in crime. It works out well because he codes on a MacBook and I'm on a Windows laptop so we cover all the bases.  I was super nervous in the run up to this and practiced setting up Firebase and the code at least 6 times! I even got my boyfriend to try it out on his laptop and he was the most difficult practice student ever! I wanted to do this because there were many steps to get the app up and running and I don't like going to codelabs when the instructor is still figuring how to run code. 

Anyway,  it all paid off!  The time flew by super fast and it was super productive!  I asked my class at the end to raise their hands if they got the code to run and 90% of them managed to which made me super happy and warm and fuzzy inside. 

You can find my slides for my codelab #here but the repo is no longer available.
