There and Back Again: Life at Google

Time & Date: 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm, January  27th, 2016

Talk Abstract: Named Fortune’s #1 best company to work for, for six years, Google’s culture is imbued with moonshot thinking, creativity, and a sense of humour, and Googlers tackle problems at unprecedented scale. To balance a fast-paced work environment, there are many perks and opportunities for growth, both work-related and otherwise. In this talk Bryan will share highlights and lowlights, lessons and surprises on a tour through his three years as a freshly graduated software developer, working in Search and Ads at Google Seattle.

Speaker Biography: Bryan Gardiner grew up in the Okanagan and has been involved with computers for as long as he can remember. He studied at Okanagan College and UBC Okanagan and graduated in 2011 with an Honours in Computer Science and a Major in Mathematics, and performed research in computational convex analysis. He then spent a few memorable years with Google in Seattle. He also develops free software in his spare time.
