Google I/O 2014 has been announced!  (And this year, registration is going to be simpler.)  I'm excited to meet more Google developers this year, so let me know if you will be attending.
 
Only 126 days until the 7th annual Google I/O, when we come together with amazing developers like you to talk about what's next. On June 25-26, 2014, we’ll be broadcasting live from Moscone West. You can join us in person in San Francisco or remotely, via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world. 

More details to come next month, including registration info. In the meantime, you can check out highlights from last year at https://developers.google.com/events/io/

Also, quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter. We’ll be following up with more details from +GoogleDevelopers, so stay tuned.

I am definitely looking forward to it! I hope I get to go and explore this awesome event again! The new registration process is making me a bit nervous!

We are capable of focusing while working, I promise.  But did you know that aspirin lost its trademark as a war reparation from WWI?  #thankswikipedia
 
Aspirin and heroin lost their status as registered trademarks in the 1919 Treaty of Versailles.

"As part of war reparations specified in the 1919 Treaty of Versailles following Germany's surrender after World War I, Aspirin (along with heroin) lost its status as a registered trademark in France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, where it became a generic name."

Wikipedia is fun.

Thanks to my dad for helping me take things apart as a kid, instead of getting mad when I couldn't put them back together.  He started me down this tech path.  #AdaLovelaceDay

Thanks for sharing +Joanna Smith... Sometimes when I see all those youngsters who all want to be a manager or do something in sales or marketing... I fear that in the not-so-distant future there will be a serious lack of people who want to take things apart and work with their hands to put it back together... We need more dads like yours... ;-)

It's always great to have visitors on Google+ Developers Live!  This week, I was joined by the two product managers, +Thor Mitchell and +Joel Kalmanowicz, who were behind the Google+ Domains API.

Happy December from the Texas highways! The horizon is so flat that you can see Christmas approaching. Or perhaps that is simply the music coming from KITZ 106.7.

Pro tip: Don't mix up the cube before taking a good look at it.  This only took me forever to solve.

My ferocious little poodle won't even wake up to take a picture.  But it is her day, so she can have it her way.  #nationaldogday

I'm pretty excited to start seeing dedicated apps for Google+ Domains!
 
Great to see the Google+ Domains API launch! Big shout out to the Google+ API and Enterprise teams for making this happen. Can't wait to see how Google Apps developers use this to integrate their apps with Google+ and help companies connect.

You had me at "Hello, World!"
Introduction
I am a Developer Programs Engineer at Google, working with the Google+ development community.

I recently graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, having studied Computer Science, with a thesis based in CS Education.

I love learning new trivia, and trying to challenge (read: scare) myself.
