Learn how Google puts the "engineering" into "software engineering" and develops software at very large scale. This talk will cover Google's approaches to code organization, software quality, and monitoring - and how this translates into tools, processes, and our use of programming languages. We will also share what this means for a day in the life of a Software Engineer at Google.
