Engineering: a first run experience

There's a code of silence in technology, that tells us that speaking out about wrongdoings also puts us in the wrong. In an effort to tear down that code, I'm speaking out about some of my experiences in my first job out of college, as a software engineer. Sadly, these are only a few of the incidents of sexism that I have to retell about that job, but sexism comes in many forms. I'm hoping that these will help people recognize sexism in its many forms, and help other women feel less alone.

Buying a new Android phone isn't as awesome as it should be.

I got a new Moto X and I like it a lot.  The problem is that there is no great solution to transfer stuff from the old phone.  The Motorola Migrate application gets a lot of it but not my home screen icons, background, ringtone, etc.

This is crazy.  Why don't we make it easy to buy and upgrade to a new phone.  My wife got a new iPhone and it was an super easy upgrade process.

Am I missing something or does android just suck here?

Not sure old phone needs to be running Lollipop.  I will say the new backup/restore in Lollipop is much better than it used to be.  Includes background, home screen, widgets, etc.. but I think this only kicks in once you're on lollipop.  Doesn't help now.

I missed this the other day.  Eric and team have been working super hard to drive GCE support through lots of open source tools.
 
Puppet, Chef, SaltStack, Ansible, CoreOS, Docker, Packer, Vagrant and others... Google Compute Engine works great with your favorite open source software. Check it out on our blog.

Thanks +Joe Beda, I'm just making sure it's easier for folks to take advantage of all the amazing work you've done to make Google's infrastructure available to the world!

Last week, +Miles Ward, Google Cloud Platform’s Global Head of Solutions, kicked off our Container series with a post about the overarching concepts around containers, Docker, and Kubernetes. Loop back to his post in case you missed it. This week, +Joe Beda, Senior Staff Engineer and one of the founding members of the Kubernetes project, will go a level deeper and talk about the core technical concepts that underpin Google’s use of containers. These have informed the creation of Kubernetes and provide a foundation of future posts in this series. Dive in here: http://goo.gl/aB7xYN

Nice read. It should figure in Kubernetes.io!

+Joe Beda , +Chris Ramsdale, +Brian Dorsey and I did a breakout session that covered how Google builds applications, plus what's new and cool in Compute Engine and App Engine. The video was just posted.

Wow -- amazing how far we've come.
 
It's pretty amazing what can be done in 18 months...

Last year at Google I/O, we announced Google Compute Engine. (my project for the last 4-ish years). We had a great "1.0" product -- we'd covered the basic features, with a few great twists (all storage encrypted at rest, global VM network), a few glaring warts (twice-yearly maintenance windows) and a number of rough edges.

Since then, in addition to scaling up our back-end systems and redesigning our APIs for better fault tolerance/isolation, we've rolled out a few new features:

* Globally available snapshots of persistent disks
* Disk attach and remove on the fly
* A new web UI
* High memory and High CPU machine types
* Boot from persistent disk
* Ability to bulk-fetch and monitor instance and project metadata within a instance
* Small and micro machine types with less than 1 core and limited bursting
* Increased supported PD volume sizes from 1T to 10T
* Instance-level metadata updates
* Ability to program routing rules on your virtual network (VPN, LB, etc)
* Per-minute pricing after the first 10 minutes
* API command to reboot a VM
* Transparent internet load-balancing at L3 or L4 that scales to 1M qps
* Ability to boot a kernel of your choice
* Differential snapshots and pricing for same (pay only for changed data in snapshots)
* Image management and deprecation
* RHEL and SuSE licensing support
* Live migration and the removal of maintenance windows
* Disk performance scaling with size up to 2-5x the soured of a single drive.

Plus a bunch of behind-the-scenes work on reliability, performance, manageability, tools, etc. Also, 3+ price drops, including the very exciting pricing change today to make durable, snapshot-able, portable disk cost the same as our old ephemeral instance-local storage. This is a very exciting development thanks to our storage and infrastructure teams.

And lest you think "General Availability" means "done," I'm looking forward to seeing where things go in the next 18 months. I think we'll see some equally interesting announcements in the next 6 months, 1 year, etc. This isn't the end of the road or even the end of the beginning, but it's a nice milestone.

Super slow service. Fish sandwich was very overcooked. Seemed like faded glory.

My daughter loves these ponytail holders! She has to make sure that they always match the dress she is wearing that day. We've also had Stitches So Sweet create some amazing personalized baby gifts that our friends have loved. Will definitely buy again.
