(2013) Rewriting a large C++ system in Go. This Google team needed to make major changes to a 0.5M LOC shared C++ code base, which was a daunting prospect. Instead they rewrote the 20% they needed in Go (21K LOC!) and had it running in production in under 5 months, including several major new features.

I put together a huge list of tools I recommend to people.
Pretty much every day someone asks me if there's a tool for solving a specific API problem. While Runscope solves many API problems (particularly debugging, testing and monitoring) for app developers, there are many things we don't do. My goal with this post is to list out all the API tools that I know of and frequently recommend to people. Some even compete with us, but the more the merrier. I've left out code libraries and framewor...

Today we’re announcing the DVF | Made for Glass collection, a collaboration that brings chic eyewear designs by iconic American fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg to the Glass Explorer Program. These new designs build on the style choices we gave Explorers when we launched the Titanium Collection in January.

Starting June 23, you can purchase the collection exclusively on +NET-A-PORTER and google.com/glass, which includes five new frames and eight new shades to give you even more ways to make Glass your own. At that time, you’ll also be able to purchase the Titanium collection on +MR PORTER

In 2012, we gave you an insider’s view of the +DVF Spring 2013 runway show with DVF [through Google Glass]. We’re honored to collaborate with her talented team again. Like Diane says, “technology is your best accessory.”

So no offense to everyone looking for #GoogleIO codes; I was tempted to do so as well. Instead, I downloaded the #AndroidStudio and used this time pick up a new skill. +Google+ Developers +Google +Android

#GlassUpdates: SMS for iPhone and new Calendar Glassware

Didn’t expect to see us back so soon, did you? Now that we’ve finished upgrading your Glass software to Android KitKat, we plan to bring you faster updates. We’ve got a few new goodies coming later this week:

SMS for iPhone – iOS fans, by popular demand you can now get texts from your friends on Glass. Get started by going to your iPhone’s Bluetooth settings and turning on “Show Notifications” for your paired Glass. When you receive a new text message, it will appear as a notification on Glass. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to reply from Glass due to some limitations with iOS. (Android fans, don’t feel left out – you’ve got SMS on Glass already.)

Calendar Glassware – On the Glassware tab in MyGlass, you’ll see a new Calendar Glassware. Turn it on to see your agenda to the left of the home screen. Tap a calendar card from your timeline and you can change the title, time, location, and RSVP as well as delete the event or dismiss it from your timeline.

These changes will be headed your way in the next few days – stay tuned!
