Paul Carff: Paul is a Developer Advocate for the Google TV Platform, and is currently engaging with partners to develop applications and Video Sitemaps (improving Video search and discovery).  He recently had some fun building the KegDroid. At Google, he has managed a number of internal technical support teams, the Google Analytics Support, and developed data warehousing solutions enabling Google's Sales and Support teams to scale. Before working at Google, Paul was a career Naval Officer working his way from the enlisted to the officer ranks.Specialties: Video Sitemaps, Google TV, Android


Les Vogel: Les is a Staff Developer Programs Engineer for Google TV. He works closely with Google TV developers, writing sample code and helping them understand how to bring rich, compelling apps to the Google TV Android marketplace. As an eclectic developer, Les has worked on at all levels including hardware drivers, neural networks, accounting and databases for small businesses, solar energy systems, spreadsheets, image processing, electrical power systems monitoring and very smart websites. He's found that making things fast is an exponential benefit for users - faster things often have greater battery life and it tends to delight users, even if they don't understand why. Visible projects: AirPort wireless networking, helped drive the Core99 chipset through the Apple product line; the Newton printed handwriting recognizer; Full Impact spreadsheet engine for Ashton Tate; distributed multi-processor OS for Motorola (Computer cX); a flood management telemetry system and monitoring of solar housing for the TVA; a fail-safe system for Boeing Energy Systems.Specialties: Google TV for Android

    The information was interesting but perhaps a little off topic. I expected more information about the "Building" of GTV Apps (i.e. new and upcoming features for GTV) and also more information about publishing (given my experience with Android... perhaps even a handout with the differences between building a "base" honeycomb app verses a GTV app so I can "convert" a base Android app to a GTV app. Regardless the presenters seemed knowledgeable and passionate.
