Claudio Cherubino's blog Life of a Googler

My first two weeks at Google

I just started my third week at Google as Developer Programs Engineer and I wanted to recap my experience so far.

You may have heard many stories on what working for Google is like, and many of them are actually true, but you won't know until you are inside, and that's exactly what happened to me.

When you start at Google, you have to attend the Noogler Orientation training sessions for one or more weeks, where you learn how things work (and a lot of secrets too!). In the meanwhile you have to understand how to move inside the huge internal documentation section and start a personal project.

One of the other advantages of working at Google is that you can attend to many Tech Talks on any kind of topics. Just to mention a few, in the two weeks I have been here I listened to Vint Cerf, the "Father of the Internet", and to Monty Widenius, the creator of MySQL.

What else? I'm having a lot of fun and eating too much. You already know about food at Google, don't you?
