Google I/O 2009 / San francisco trip

Google IO 2009

img_18081First of all, Google I/O 2009 was awesome. First day during the keynote they tell us we get an android phone ! And the second day they announce Wave. (Somehow I feel like combining the two :) ) .I already had an android phone but since i’m a gadget nut I welcome all new toys :D… The sessions were cool.. I went to several sessions on Android , Opensocial and Google Web Toolkit. I just updated my eclipse to the latest version and updated the sdk and got my first hello world android app to work :) now to build that shortner app ! And maybe some others. I’m also looking forward to the invite to wave… That has to be something else.. I’m eager to show it off at work … And I really feel like writing my own implementation. I loved that console version :D

Hotel Palomar

Like last year this hotel rawks.. I’ve been in a few hotels by now and I really like this hotel for its great rooms. Not the biggest .. but definatly the best kept…. The only bad thing is we ordered a room at the zen garden but got a room looking into offices … which is not really ” zen”

I love this city. Allthough it is a bit littered with all these homeless people its pretty easy to get around. If you watch where you step.  We took a tour of the bay and underneath the golden gate brige and back around alcatraz.

The weather here is like Holland .. The difference is though that the weather here changes on which altitude and which part of the city you are. Ocean climates rock!

Right there is a picture of the trans american piramid. Which is a pretty nice view  from up that hill.

I will post some more in depth reviews of the phone (Google ION) later
