Building the core features that power your idea isn’t always as hard as you think. Usually you don’t need to re-invent the wheel. This session will cover a number of tools and services you can use to accelerate your project, focusing on Google’s services.  This session expects a basic knowledge of programming.

Presenters

Jordan BorgesJordan.jpg

Jordan leads curriculum design for Strategy & Transformation at RBC. He works with innovation programs, like RBC Amplify and RBCx, to develop learning experiences for participants that will give them the skills to go from complex problems to meaningful solutions. Before RBC, he studied Interaction Design at Sheridan college, which gave him his start at RBC as a UX/UI designer. A rule of thumb that he loves is that the innovation process is never simple, but if you remember to fall in love with the problem – and not the solution – you’ll always put people first.
