Concurrent and Distributed Computing at Google

Daniel Nadasi (Google)

DATE: 2009-10-16
TIME: 14:00:00 - 15:00:00
LOCATION: Chemistry Lecture Theatre T1

Have you ever wondered how Google's massive computing infrastructure works? How Google manages to keep petabytes of data and thousands of machines stable, consistent, responsive, scalable and fault-tolerant? In this talk, you will be presented with a bottom-up tour of Google. Starting from the building blocks of concurrent and distributed computing, you will see how Google's systems are constructed, through the internal systems that are used, to some of the newest products, such as Google App Engine.

Daniel Nadasi joined Google as a Software Engineer in November 2007. He currently works on advertising for Google Maps. Aside from this, he has also worked on Google Tasks and open source initiatives. Daniel graduated from ANU in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Mathematics."
