Referent: JC van Winkel, Site Reliability Engineer, Google Zurich

JC van Winkel has a B.S. and an M.S. in Computer Science (the M.S. from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam). From 1990 to 2010 he worked at a small courseware and consulting firm in Where he taught UNIX and UNIX-related subjects, such as C++. Since November 2010 he has been working as a software engineer at Google Switzerland in Zurich.


Google's mission (to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful) in today's world requires quite some infrastructure. Not only in hardware, but also in software. In this talk we will take a look at some of this infrastructure and some of the projects making use of it. Of course, achieving Google's goal and overcoming the challenges needed to perform at Google scale is only possible with people. Therefore we will also look at the culture within Google and the philosophy around which all engineering is done.
