The pace is a little different on the course.  We're hoping it'll be a good fit for people who prefer a longer, more structured format than the docs.

I'm doing more +Google Cloud Platform office hours next week in Boston, MA.

I'll be hanging out at Thinking Cup near the Boston Common (165 Tremont St) from 3 to 5pm. Come chat with me about BigQuery, Firebase, or whatever cloudy thing is on your mind :)
Thinking Cup is pleased to serve stumptown coffee, organic teas and freshly baked pastries. We are located in Downtown Boston. Stop By

Unfortunately I don't, I travel for work most of the time so I'm not tuned into anything in Houston. But I am on the lookout!

Google engineers have experimented and developed a set of building blocks for the Internet of Things - an ecosystem of connected devices, services and “things” that promises direct and efficient support of one’s daily life. While there has been significant progress in this field, significant challenges remain before the IoT becomes a reality. 

In order to address these challenges, and to foster collaboration with the academic community, we are inviting university researchers to participate in the Internet of Things (IoT) Technology Research Award Pilot, which provides selected researchers in-kind gifts of Google IoT related technologies. 

To learn more about the technologies, and how to submit a proposal, visit the Research blog, linked below. Proposals are due February 29th. We look forward to seeing what you can do with our software and devices!

Here's the video from my IoT Hacking 101 for WebDevs talk that I gave at #UbiquityDevSummit

It includes EE for WebDevs in a few slides, an electronics show-and-tell, +Firebase, Johnny-Five, live electronics making, and live coding.

Open Source Release of TensorFlow

I'm very excited to announce the open source release of the TensorFlow machine learning library that I and many others at Google have been building.

This blog post gives an overview:
  http://googleresearch.blogspot.com/2015/11/tensorflow-googles-latest-machine_9.html

The web site has a number of tutorials and documentation about the system:
  http://tensorflow.org

The source is on GitHub:
  https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow

You might also be interested in the whitepaper we've prepared that describes TensorFlow in more detail:
  http://tensorflow.org/whitepaper2015.pdf

We'd love to hear what people think.

+Happy Nerdcore's latest experiment: a Weapons of Mass Distraction yukata.
 
One day, I hope to play +Ingress in Tokyo, but until then here are a few photos of me dorking out in San Francisco's Japanese Tea Garden in a Weapons of Mass Distraction yukata.

Introduction
Yes, my hair is green. I did that on purpose. =)

By day I'm a Developer Advocate. This means I help you build cool stuff with technology. By night, I spend my time split between roller derby, aerial silk, hacking all the things

I also really love science, especially space and astronomy.
