Some great description of the progression of a software developer here.
 
That's a must read for everyone in the tech industry. 
We work in a strange industry. There is a much higher need for developers than can be satisfied by new developers coming into the field. This is a …

This book was very insightful for me https://pragprog.com/book/ahptl/pragmatic-thinking-and-learning The hallmark of an experienced software professional is that they're always learning.

For people looking to learn how to develop for Android, I have found no better place than the Udacity Android Nanodegree.

Here's a great write-up on how to set up CI and git push to deploy for server side Dart apps to GCE.

HTTP2 fundamentally changes how you optimize your web app. Read up on it!
 
HTTP/2 is here, let's optimize: bit.ly/http2-opt - it's time to revise some of our "best practices"... We're no longer constrained by parallelism, requests are cheap, and we can simplify and improve the performance of our applications by removing a few of the previously necessary workarounds.

This is another reason to use something like Google cloud, because the server has the new protocol configured for you.

Awesome resource!
Google Developers originally shared to I/O:
 
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.

Waiting in Seattle for my flight to #io15 I'm reminded of that moment going to my first Google IO in 2011 in this exact spot when I ran into Peter Vesterbacka wearing the signature red angry birds hoodie. Little did I know he would take the stage at the keynote. I just thought... That's a sweet hoodie!

I've been wanting this for a long time! Present your Google Slides via chromecast with speaker notes and control from your computer.

Did you see this? Apparently these crazy abstract playgrounds are all the rage and Missoula is going to be getting some. http://missoulian.com/news/local/missoula-s-goal-an-awesome-park-within--minute-walk/article_1699feca-59da-5293-a29a-999f9ba5ac1c.html

At #io15 this year the process for getting up into the keynote was a million times better. First there was breakfast given out in the line outside while waiting which is pretty genius. There were separate lives based on where you were sitting in the keynote. Then a leisurely stroll instead of the mad rush. It helps that I got reserved seating being a GDG organizer.
Keynote starts in just a minute!

How cool would it be to use NFC on the web?! Well, it's in progress with the Web NFC API!
How easy is this?
(Example from W3C)
navigator.nfc.requestAdapter().then((adapter) => {
  console.log("Waiting for game state");
  adapter.onmessage = (event) => {
    console.log("Game state received from: " + event.message.scope);
    console.log("Game state: " + event.message.data);
    // Now do some calculations and update the state.
    adapter.send({ scope: event.message.scope,
                   data: [ { level: 3, points: 4500, lives: 3 } ] })
      .then(() => { console.log("Send was successful")})
      .catch(() => { console.log("Send failed")});
  };
});
Abstract. Near Field Communication (NFC) enables wireless communication between two devices at close proximity, usually less than a few centimeters. NFC is an international standard (ISO/IEC 18092) defining an interface and protocol for simple wireless interconnection of closely coupled devices ...

Absolutely the best pizza and strombolis. It's all about the dough. They like to experiment with toppings too.

Their food has gotten much better in the last year or two. It's always been a great place to get a drink, now with great food too. There's lot of different styles to choose from.

The food is always fantastic, and the servers are great. It's a great place for date night.
