Thoughts on engineering and management.

About Me

I'm the founder and technical lead of the Google App Engine project. I'm also the creator of Google Suggest.

I've worked at Google as a software engineer and a manager for the past 7 years.

Other projects I've contributed to include:

  • Discovered the initial Comet transport for Internet Explorer, based on the ActiveXObject('htmlfile') hack. This work was used in Google Talk.
  • Lens, a system for automatic user interface understanding to assist the blind.
  • Work within Google's Systems Infrastructure group, primarily on the distributed system for monitoring and scheduling applications in our datacenters.
