And Then

Last month, my wife's uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary "How are you" or "What's going on", her dad always opened the conversation with "And then?" Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more "and thens". I cried. 

Since then I've thought a lot about how similar this is to our life's endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become "and thens" as we move on to the next. 

Today I'm announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don't believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I'm overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of +Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry's encouragement and support.

I'm also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn't tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I've met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don't even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn't exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An "and then". I am excited about what's next. But this isn't the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then....

Le labo Future, de Devoxx France, c'est parti !

Depuis des semaines une dizaine de personnes travaillent à vous préparer des hackatons, des démos et des tutoriaux sur des technologies d'Internet Of Things et les nouvelles interfaces.

On aura un espace dans le hall du bas jeudi et vendredi pour se retrouver, échanger sur les démos et participer à des hackatons. On a aussi prévu des petits tutoriaux de prise en main sur différentes technologies. Le jeudi soir, cet espace se transformera en BOF.

Laurent Huet, Jean-François Garreau et Horacio Gonzalez et Claude Falguière vont amener des démos et des tutos pour le labo Future<Devoxx>, Sébastien Nedjar et Jonathan Baudin préparent des tas de constructions  bizarres pour faire des instruments de musique dans le hackaton des bidouillleurs, Audrey Neveu et Tasha Carl préparent le hackaton NAOKids avec Scratch.  Oracle prépare aussi un hackaton Java8 avec une place Java One.

Le labo Future<Devoxx> se déroule en parallèle des hackatons. Il sera organisé sur une série de thémes de 30 mn ou 1h qu’on annoncera pendant la conférence dans les Events. Les thèmes identifiés sont : NAO, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, Leap Motion et les robots pour les mini-geeks (Makey Makey, Lego Wedo, Lego Mindstorm).

Si vous avez des démos intéressantes n’hésitez pas à prendre contact avec nous pour qu’on vous fasse une place.

Et pour tous vous pouvez rejoindre la communauté pour être plus facilement au courant des événements.

- Développeur !

Alors que +Tariq Krim cherche à démontrer que les développeurs ont un impact important sur l'économie. Ce métier reste très largement méconnu par le plus grand nombre. Dans cette chronique, Pierre Dalmaz donne quelques pistes de réflexion.
