Chapter (Innovation) - How Google Works by Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg
In this meetup we will be discussing the following book and chapters listed in the title : How Google Works by Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg Synopsis HOW GOOGLE WORKS is an entertaining, page-turning primer containing lessons that Google Executive Chairman and ex-CEO Eric Schmidt and former SVP of Products Jonathan Rosenberg learned as they helped build the company. In their new book, the authors explain how technology has shifted the balance of power from companies to consumers, and that the only way to succeed in this ever-changing landscape is to create superior products and attract a new breed of multifaceted employees whom Eric and Jonathan dub "smart creatives." Covering topics including corporate culture, strategy, talent, decision-making, communication, innovation, and dealing with disruption, the authors illustrate management maxims with numerous insider anecdotes from Google’s history. In an era when everything is speeding up, the best way for businesses to succeed is to attract smart-creative people and give them an environment where they can thrive at scale. HOW GOOGLE WORKS is a new book that explains how to do just that.

What we're about

This group provides a FREE forum where by Software Developers of all levels can discuss different topics in many different programming languages, software design, methodologies, improved development practices, shared experiences, and anything we can relate to our Art. The format of the meeting is a group discussion where we encourage everyone to participate. Usually the group focuses a selected section in a book or some other media format of choice. Books and discussion topics are nominated and chosen in a democratic fashion keeping the group going in the direction the group as a whole wants to go. Everyone is welcome to attend that wants to improve and learn from shared experiences or just wants to network. Many of us in the group feel we would not be the software developers we are today without this group.
