Thoughts from Google I/O 2017 (Day 1)

0

I thought I’d do some reporting on my experience here at Google I/O. This is my first one (ticket courtesy of the Google Developer Experts Program), and so I’ll collect my thoughts/learnings/experiences here. Getting in/Registration Fairly easy.

Great, well-organized conf. WWC is a great gift to the Philly tech community, and I look forward to seeing what they cook up next year. (and thanks for having me as a speaker this year!). I made a Storify of this year’s tweets, since I had fun making one last year. Enjoy! [View the story […]
