Look how far we've come since 1998.
 
“It is impossible to overestimate the importance of Sergey’s and Larry’s paper in 1998. I cannot think of any scientific paper that has had such an impact on society.” 
-  Professor Dame Wendy Hall, International World Wide Web Conference Committee Chair

Congratulations to Google founders +Larry Page and +Sergey Brin, who have received the inaugural Seoul Test-of-Time Award at the 24th International World Wide Web Conference in Florence, Italy!

In 1998, Larry and Sergey introduced Google to the world with their research paper The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine (http://goo.gl/PCPZK4), presented at the 7th World Wide Conference in Brisbane, Australia.

The award was presented on May 22, and was accepted on behalf of our founders by Google Distinguished Scientist +Andrei Broder. See the #www2015  conference announcement at http://goo.gl/A71sFt.

Employing emotional intelligence. The initial curriculum was developed for Google’s engineers, and it focuses on what’s happening in the brain when you’re having certain thoughts and feelings, and encourages reflection rather than reaction.

How one of Google's original engineers became a self-help guru, and why thousands are on waiting lists for his course.

Hands-on problem-solving. Google Code Jam is back, challenging programmers around the globe. And it takes many Googlers to keep things running smoothly. On #techtuesday  we'll feature engineers like Ian Tullis, who manually verified one of the sample cases for the Qual round's Infinite House of Pancakes problem.

What's your role on the Code Jam team?
I've written many problems for the 2015 global Code Jam and the Code Jam to I/O for Women. I also help to prepare input/output generators for some problems. A surprising amount of work goes into each problem beyond just coming up with the idea and writing the statement!

Why and when did you join the Google Code Jam team?
I participated in the internal Code Jam playtests in 2013 and 2014, and by the summer of 2014, I was just bursting with ideas and knew I had to contribute some problems of my own.

What was the first Code Jam you ever competed in?
2011. I missed winning a shirt by THIS much! (Actually, it wasn't that close -- I would have needed at least another Small.) Now, as part of the writing/testing team, I have more shirts than I know what to do with.

What's your favorite programming language?
I mostly program in Go at work, but I use Python to write puzzles (not just programming contest questions) and for other practical tasks. I need to get better at C++ so I can hold my own in Codeforces and TopCoder!

The question really is: "Why should we choose you over other candidates?" or "What do you bring to the table that other applicants do not?" #interviewtips

Round 1C Analysis is now live @ https://goo.gl/D14Ug4. What was the most challenging problem for you to solve in this round? #CodeJam2015
We're now waiting for the contest to start. Once the contest starts, the problems will automatically load, and Problem A will display here. You don't have to solve that problem first; you will be able to select another problem from the list to the left. Once you've solved one problem, ...

Cross-company concert. If you crossed the movie "Pitch Perfect" with tech companies, what would you get? Two rival a cappella singing groups — Google's Googapella (pictured) and Facebook's The Vocal Network — in one awesome afternoon concert today at Mountain View's Charleston Park.

Improving the way we work. Here are the 10 most important rules for developing a happy, healthy and productive workplace, direct from +Laszlo Bock, our SVP of People Operations. #workwednesday  
We spend more time working than doing anything else in life. Yet for too many people, the experience of work is demotivating and dehumanizing. I don’t think it has to be this way, and I’m willing to bet you don’t either. At Google, we’ve learned a ton about what makes for an enjoyable and productive workplace. We’re not alone – lots of other companies, ranging from grocers (e.g., Wegmans) to textile companies (e.g., the Brandix Group) to Brooklyn...
