I’m posting this because I enjoy meeting new people and because many of the great technical people I meet are curious about working at Google. If we’ve spoken at a conference and you think I have forsaken you, please don’t fret. Email me your resume, remind me who you are, and I’ll add you to the voracious technical employer that is Google. I want you to work here and do well. Really, I do. To help, a few handy links to things people much smarter than I have written.

Stevey’s Hilarious Post about what to expect and how to prepare.

You might also want to work through this:

And for massive extra cred:
Work hard, and read Outliers: The Story of Success, which explains why I’m not actually kidding with my link to Knuth.
