E. John Feig is currently working for TiKL, Inc. as an Android developer, John is responsible for code that gets shipped to tens of millions of users. He gets to do lots of fun stuff at TiKL, like writing clients for new platforms from scratch, playing with Google Glass and touching the full stack. He has worked on the Android client, some of the Java servers, the in-development web client, a bit of PhotoShop, as well as keeping up with TiKL's social media presence.

7:45 - 8:30pm The Glass Platform: How We Got Here 

Jenny Murphy has been working on the Google Glass developer platform for a year and a half. It's been a wild ride. In this keynote, she will tell you some stories about the challenges faced along the way. These stories will give you insight into how the APIs and design guidelines came to be. Believe it or not, there's more to it than pictures of kittens and puppies. 

Jenny Murphy is a Staff Developer Programs Engineer on Google Glass. In this role, she helps developers use Google APIs and technologies to build cool stuff for Glass. Before joining Google, Jenny worked in a wide variety of software engineering roles from robotics at NASA to the architect of a social media startup. She is passionate about writing and education, especially on the subjects of technology and science.

      Yep, sorry about that. I didn't want to repeat stuff that I had done at the last couple events. I asked for input at the beginning, and went with what people asked for. We will have another event that will be an actual, real workshop, on 4/6. This will be much longer and more in-depth, if that's what you're looking for.­
