For the past three years or so, Jon has been part of a team building .NET libraries for Google Cloud Platform, allowing their customers to use the amazing APIs built by their colleagues in a simple fashion.
This has proved to be an interesting journey in purely technical terms, but much more so in the boundary between technology and people.
In this talk Jon will share some of the lessons he has learned - and those he is still learning - about producing libraries to satisfy beginners and power users alike.

Lessons learned building .NET client libraries for Google Cloud Platform
Jon Skeet is a Senior Software Engineer at Google, working out of the London office (and his shed). By day, he works on making Google Cloud Platform an awesome environment for C# developers, focusing on client libraries for Google APIs. By night, he maintains the Noda Time date/time library for .NET and writes about C#. On days containing a "y" in their name, he trawls Stack Overflow for interesting C# and Java questions.
