Session: Building Actions for Google Assistant from Scratch
An intro about the voice sector, and how to build your first action for Google Assistant using Actions on Google and Dialogflow.
Mercedes is a software developer, currently focused on developing Actions for the Google Assistant and chatbots for different platforms using Dialogflow. She is passionate about human-computer interaction and Voice User Interfaces, always trying to build the best conversational experiences, cause she truly believes that everything will be managed by voice in a not so far future. Since February 2019, she is a Google Developer Expert for Assistant. Previously, she has also worked as a teacher, as a translator specialized in localization, and as a web content editor, writing at many different blogs. She is a very curious person who loves to learn new things all the time. Right now, one of her main concerns is the lack of women in technology. That's why she is a co-organizer at GalsTech, a group trying to improve women visibility in the sector, in order to encourage more girls to choose technological careers by giving talks, and organizing meetups and workshops. She is also a co-organizer at GDG Vigo.
