Google I/O Developer Conference

I'm thrilled to announce that I will be attending Google's I/O Developer Conference this May. The yearly conference covers everything nerdy at Google from App Engine to Android.

Even more exciting is that I won my ticket in the Last Call for Google I/O 2011 Android Challenge. 10 winners were chosen from 70 app submissions. The contest was particularly challenging as contestants had 20 hours to work. Subtract eight hours for sleep as this new dad was not about to pull an all-nighter and use much needed sleep. Despite never writing any animation in Android, I managed to pull something out with about 2 hours to spare.
