Since Google insists I'm Larry Page, does that mean I get to be CEO now?

Tips & Tricks  - 
 
Here's a nice little feature that escaped our documentation attention a while back. 

If you've been longing for the expand-acl parameter to return, good news. You can request in-line expansion of permissions (and custom properties in files and changes calls.

The magic incantation requires using the fields query parameter. Of course everyone should already be using this to keep the response bodies all nice and svelt. Explicitly including the permissions or properties resources will cause them to be expanded in-line.

And by explicit, I mean really explicit. Broad patterns like "*", "items", and so on aren't enough. The specific path, such as "items/permissions" for files.list or "items/file/permissions" for changes.list needs to be included.

Once you're familiar with how the fields parameter syntax works, it's not at all hard to do. And with the ability to expand some of the nested collections in-line, you can reduce the overall # of queries you need to make if your app needs them.

Yes, there likely is increased latency when asking for that data. I haven't experimented to see if it's an appreciable difference or not.

They'll be available on the Developers YouTube channel, throughout the I/O livestream, and on the I/O website once the event starts.

Today's episode of #DevBytes The Beauty of Scale with Google Cloud Platform is from +Colt McAnlis. When talking about Cloud Offerings, it's easy to forget the data-centers that make it all happen. In this video, Colt takes a quick look at maintaining Google's scale through it's data-centers, and how developers can leverage the same hardware and software running google's services to write their own applications.

Make sure to join the Google Cloud Platform Community to connect with other developers. http://g.co/clouddevscommunity

Yay!
 
Only 126 days until the 7th annual Google I/O, when we come together with amazing developers like you to talk about what's next. On June 25-26, 2014, we’ll be broadcasting live from Moscone West. You can join us in person in San Francisco or remotely, via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world. 

More details to come next month, including registration info. In the meantime, you can check out highlights from last year at https://developers.google.com/events/io/

Also, quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter. We’ll be following up with more details from +GoogleDevelopers, so stay tuned.
Google I/O 2013 brings together thousands of developers for three days of deep technical content focused on building the next generation of web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open web technologies such as Android, Google Chrome, Google APIs, Google Web Toolkit, App Engine, and more.

Did the 5 course menu with wine pairing. Everything was very good to exceptional, and wines paired perfectly. Impeccable service, always present but never overbearing or rushed. The downside? A wee bit pricey at over $250/person after tax & tip!

Small, but solid menu. Drinks are good and a few local beers that are nice finds (Devil Canyon's Scotch Ale is tasty!) Service can be on the slow side, particularly during dinner hours. Very nice outdoor space too!
