Milky Way over Erupting Volcano

The view was worth the trip. Battling high winds, cold temperatures, and low oxygen, the trek to near the top of the volcano Santa Maria in Guatemala -- while carrying sensitive camera equipment -- was lonely and difficult. Once set up, though, the camera captured this breathtaking vista during the early morning hours of February 28. Visible on the ground are six volcanoes of the Central America Volcanic Arc, including Fuego, the Volcano of Fire, which is seen erupting in the distance. Visible in the sky, in separate exposures taken a few minutes later, are many stars much further in the distance, as well as the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy situated horizontally overhead.
Check out these two fascinating videos by my teammate Srikanth, who recently did a Hangout on Air with India college students.
Video 1: Overview of airline pricing and routing
...or, why do you sometimes pay less to travel much further?
Video 2: And now for the hardcore math/engineering geeks
Srikanth covers two important aspects of the problem: (1) the NP-hardness of even the simplistic versions of the problem, and (2) the QPX algorithm itself, which Google uses to perform the airfare search.

And yeah, I love working with super-smart people who are just as passionate about travel as I am... and I'm grateful that Srikanth -- a backend engineer on Flights -- so enthusiastically took on this Hangouts on Air presentation :).
With the help of hosts around the world, I/O Extended is truly a global event. We have 200+ events registered in over 70 countries. Check them out on the I/O website today (http://goo.gl/yXHl1b)!
Can I become an I/O Extended host?
Anyone interested in bringing their local developer community together can organize an I/O Extended event. The agenda is up to you: we encourage hosts to add value to their events by preparing other activities in addition to viewing the I/O live stream. Consider including code labs, hackathons, demos and Q&A sessions with local speakers, as these all tend to be popular with I/O Extended attendees.
If you’re joining us as an I/O Extended host this year, here are the steps you should take to get started:
-- Read through the Organizer Guide to get tips and suggestions on how to host a successful event (http://goo.gl/IpFhJN).
-- Register your public event on the I/O website for increased visibility (http://goo.gl/qPI7nG).
-- Join the I/O Extended 2015 Organizers Google+ Community to exchange ideas with other hosts (http://goo.gl/6mw4zE).
Should I attend an I/O Extended event?
Joining an Extended event is a great networking opportunity and much more fun than watching the live stream on your own! Last year we had 80K+ attendees worldwide. Make sure to search for your location on the I/O map to find Extended events happening near you in 2015 (http://goo.gl/yXHl1b).
