Awesome new video with my teammates. Learn more about #CocoaPods  and enjoy a tv flashback.
 
Hey there, iOS developers! Did you hear us announce support for CocoaPods yesterday and found yourself saying, "Gosh! I wish I could find out more about this CocoaPods thing, but only in the form of a 1950s sitcom for some reason"? Well, thanks to +Todd Kerpelman's Route 85 show, you're in luck!

We've made the Google I/O 2015 codelabs app publicly available for all #io15 participants in person, and attendees worldwide.

Codelabs provide a hands-on, guided tutorial experience illustrating how to build modern mobile and web applications using the latest Google APIs, tools and developer technologies. If you're here at Moscone, we're excited for you to try this out after the keynote on level 2.
Google Codelabs for developers staying on the cutting edge.

+Magnus Hyttsten was nice enough to give me a guest spot on the Google Play Services 7.5 launch video. That was fun to shoot.

This is Ine of those moments when we really have no idea about the potential of this platform. The IoT is an amazing greenfield.
 
Really excited by the possibilities of Brillo and Weave. As a developer, the opportunities an IoT ecosystem could open up are phenomenal.

Awesome to see this coming to iOS!
 
Oh, The Places You'll Go! Announcing the Google Places API for iOS! Now developers can build native applications on both iOS and Android that speak their users’ language: place names instead of latitude/longitude coordinates, addresses instead of raw location signals.

Interesting discussion of the advantages of film vs. digital. Bottom line there's a few ways film is better but digital has caught up or exceeded in most categories.
In a world in which photographs are primarily taken with digital image sensors, there are a growing number of photographers who are newly interested in fil

Expensive mediocre food. Lovely, attentive service but really slow. Nice atmosphere. But there's no excuse for bad Mexican food in this town.

Food wasn't great for the price point. Servers are nice, but for the price point you shouldn't have to bus your own table. Plus i saw one of the kitchen staff pick his nose which is unsanitary.

A-mazing. Really great food, well balanced. Menu changes daily. I recommend letting their knowledgeable staff plan your meal. Nice ambiance. Reasonable price point for the meal. Perfect for a post-SFJAZZ meal.

Mediocre Indian at best. Ended up throwing it out. Got stomach distress after eating it. I would avoid.
