Amazing! The trip was simply amazing. While the conference was only two days, we decided to make a vacation out of it by dedicating two days to travel, one day for sight seeing, and two days for the conference. Before leaving, we purchased tickets to visit Alcatraz Island. That was a good decision. We walked from our hotel to the port and then spent a few hours on the island.
After leaving the island we headed to Pier 39. It was a popular tourist attraction, but was very enjoyable to visit. It was not too crowded and the shops and stores were nice. I was a major fan of the left handed store and ended up getting a t-shirt.
Using the public transportation to get around the city was very affordable and we had no problems. I will be posting some more pictures in the next few days. I will also write a recap of what I learned from the conference itself.

My decision to go to Google IO was based on two factors, time and money. Right now, after I have finished classes but before I start my full time job. I have lots of time. The main problem is I have no money. I made the decision to find some way to make it work and now I'm here! This is definitely a great way to celebrate the end of my college career.
The conference does not start until Tuesday, but I'm already really excited. Tomorrow will be dedicated to sight seeing and I plan on taking lots of pictures.
