Awesomely helpful guidance and tooling for building modern, multi-device, responsive web apps.
 
Thrilled to announce Web Starter Kit - a new starting point for multi-device web development

I've been working on this for the past few months with +Sindre Sorhus, +Stephen Sawchuk, +Matt Gaunt+Pascal Hartig and the team behind Google Web Fundamentals. We'd love to get your feedback on it.

Had a great time, as always, sharing the stage in London and Prague (where this was recorded) with the multi-talented +Mandy Waite.
 
+Marc Cohen and I gave this talk at DevFest Praha on Saturday.  My first bit is an overview of Compute Engine and the meat of the talk starts at 12:00 when Marc takes over and talks about Cluster Management.

You should be hearing more now - GCE went general availability and there was a ton of press and blog coverage today. :)

Nice collection of sample apps illustrating how to use Google Cloud Endpoints, which is a great way to provide API services from App Engine to mobile and web clients (courtesy of +Dan Holevoet and +Paul Rashidi).
 
+Paul Rashidi and I have been working hard on more getting started examples for Google Cloud Endpoints.

The original example (a TicTacToe app) includes a lot of complexity around actually playing a game, which can get in the way when you're trying to figure out what Endpoints does. The simpler example "Hello Endpoints" tries to be as bare-bones as possible. Check out the following GitHub projects for the code:

Java backend + web client: https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/appengine-endpoints-helloendpoints-java-maven
Python backend + web client: https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/appengine-endpoints-helloendpoints-python
Android client: https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/appengine-endpoints-helloendpoints-android
iOS client: https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/appengine-endpoints-helloendpoints-ios

Enjoy!

Yes, it's part of the London Walks (http://www.walks.com/) series. Search their tours for Banksy.

Wonderful performance of a tender song, with a nice bit of audience participation added.

Honored to share the stage with +Mandy Waite  and looking forward to showing off a new demo, which highlights Compute Engine's awesome performance.
 
Presenting on Compute Engine Clusters today at Velocity Conf Europe in London. Special guest star is +Marc Cohen who's our head of Compute DevRel. Talk is at 11:20, office hours at 12:30, but feel free to just grab me if you see me there.

I love when a popular song gets reworked with an acoustic arrangement. Here's Bon Jovi performing a lovely, down-tempo version of "It's My Life" with help from two guests from the All American Rejects.

Introduction
I manage Google's Developer Relations team in Seattle. We help software developers get the most out of the Google Cloud Platform, with a particular emphasis on Compute Engine and Cloud Storage. In a previous life, I helped design and build communication systems at Bell Labs and Lucent Technologies. When I'm not working, I enjoy indie music and films, writing, teaching, and chess.
