Visiting Google Zurich Offices

After my laptop failure that happened yesterday, in which I’ve lost all slides done and the poster I’ve built for this visit (which I’ve managed to create again during the night in my Eee PC, printing it at Zurich HB station 🙂 ), today has been an exciting day, as I went to Zurich to visit Google offices during OSS Jam, in which I’ve given a lightning talk and a poster session to show the state of Osmarender Frontend.

Beyond other projects, which I’ve found very interesting, during the lightning talks I’ve got in touch with XQuery, which seems very interesting to me. I will definitely look forward the improvements of that project.

I would like to greet Alberto Sanz (OLAT), Giacomo Catenazzi (Debian) and Claudio Tassone: all of them supported me much, chatting and giving ideas. Definitely I had a good time.

And obviously, thanks to Michael Hanselmann for the Google Office’s tour and to all other Googlers hosting us… and, obviously, to Bram Moolenaar for this photo! 🙂
