It has been an amazing 2.5 years working on Google Cloud Platform, watching Cloud transform into a major focus area at Google. I've enjoyed every moment working with some of the most talented people in my career.

Many of you know that I'm passionate about robotics, wearables, cars, and growing small teams. I could not turn down the opportunity to join our  Android Wear team.

Looking forward to new adventures at Google!

After testing the new Corvette Stingray @ Laguna Seca, I can safely conclude that it is a monster on the track. The experience of 2nd->3rd->4th through the main straight will be with me for a long time.

Interesting article on Snapchat's decision to use Google Cloud Platform: "when it comes to scale, Google could offer more than AWS."

It's Alive! Nerf Robot controllable from anywhere in the world. WFH will never be the same again!

Control Path: Bluetooth Game Controller -> Android App -> Compute Engine Instance (Node.js & Socket.IO) -> Android App -> Bluetooth Controller -> Roomba. Thanks to Compute Engine's low latency network, the robot is very driveable and controls similar to a FPS videogame.  Now that it is working, I plan to clean up the code and open source the end to end stack.

In a nutshell, native apps are currently excluded to prevent a logistical nightmare given the number of submissions we expect. Going forward, next year I'll work with the team to make sure mobile and Compute Engine apps are included. Feel free to ask for more details on the mailing list: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/gcdc2013
