Sketchnoting the Global GDG Summit

Last week, just before Google I/O, I attended the Global Google Developer Group Organizer’s Summit in San Jose.

The summit was up to 500 organizers this year, so we took over the Computer History Museum.

We discuss relevant topics to organizing as well as upcoming Google announcements. The best part, however, is interacting with organizers from all around the world!

I captured the activities from day one on video (using Google Glass), check it out to see different phases of the process.

2014, A Retrospective

In 2013, I learned I could take a break. In 2014, I learned to set my own course.

I led a team of Android developers, started a consulting businessventured into startup land, joined the board of a non-profit (we opened computer labs in Mexico and Morocco), expanded the Google Developer Group (GDG), and started hosting on AirBnB.

I taught a 3-week class in Gainesville. I created training workbooks. I took the 30×500 class. I’m writing a book.

I was free to spend most of June abroad and saw the northern lights in October. I spoke in Stockholm and Amsterdam. I attended Droid NYC, Google I/O, and two GDG conferences. I mentored at LadyHacks and inspired others to speak at conferences.

Excited to see this foundation grow in 2015.
