Haha Google is always hiring. And yeah there are offices all over the world, including the east coast. Here is a map of all the different locations.
I’ve never worked with Xamarin. So many things to try, so little time!
Thanks, that’s awesome to hear! I don’t really do any advertising, except to use the tutorials as a reference on Stack Overflow and the Processing forum. So I’m not even really sure how many readers I have. I keep thinking about trying to get better about advertising, but honestly the process of organizing and writing stuff down is fun for me regardless of whether anybody else is reading it, so it hasn’t been a high priority.
I’m not a huge gadget fan, but I did try out an Oculus Rift and it was definitely an experience. I went in with a ton of skepticism, but looking over a cliff in VR was actually pretty scary. That was a few years ago, and I imagine the tech has only improved since then.
I’m less a fan of games, and more interested in more utilitarian applications. Hiking through the Amazon rainforest from my living room sounds pretty awesome, and it has more humanitarian implications that are pretty exciting. Or interacting with an AR interface on my phone to, for example, see the history of stuff around me.
I have an app called Field Trip that notifies me when I’m near something with some interesting local history. Coupling that with AR would be really neat.
