     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."
