I was at Campus Party 2008

Last week I was invited to Campus Party 2008 by Google as I told in a previous post. Thanks to my friend plunchete, that put them on touch with me. I got two invitations so Daniel Latorre came with me.

I met Clara Rivera from Google Spain and JoaquĆ­n Cuenca co-founder of Panoramio (bought by Google). And we also were invited to the Google Developer Day on September in Madrid.

There were also other important people like Jon “maddog” Hall, and Tim Berners Lee.

Daniel, like me, is also working on the Google Summer of Code so we talked a little about our experience and the timeline of the program at the Google stand. The video was recorded and here it is (in Spanish, starting at minute 4).

In other areas there were talks about programming with the iPhone, how to create a startup, JSF with Oracle,… Some of them very interesting. It was a great experience.

Here you can see some photos and more photos.

Hello from the Campus Party 2008, Valencia (Spain)

Google has invited me to the Campus Party this year. All I did was writting a mail to the Google developers blog in spanish. They invited 30 people.

The Campus Party is a meeting of people that loves computers: gamers, developers, etc. It lasts 7 days. This year there are 7714 people here. We have a big internet connection and there are several events. For example Google is going to talk about Android, App Engine, etc.

Also Google Spain sent me an email. They want me to talk about my Summer of Code experience. I want to thank Google for this opportunity. I’ll post more about this event.
