Along with many other Googlers, the Geo team is descending upon Austin for South by Southwest! You can find us in a few different places:
  • At the Google booth, we’ll be doing demos of Google Maps, as well as plenty of other Google products.
  • In the Google Teaching Theater, you can meet engineers who built biking directions and hear all about how it was created (see the schedule here).
  • On Saturday, we’ll be hopping on our bikes to take part in Bike Hugger’s Mobile Social. Along the way we’ll be handing out some fun bike-related schwag, dishing more about how we built biking directions, and getting feedback directly from the cyclists.
For those who aren’t able to make it to SXSW, remember to check out our contest to win a new custom bike: simply tweet with the hashtag #bikewithgoogle -- maybe share your favorite trail or a new route you want to try taking to the office -- and you’ll be entered to win!

You can read more about all of the Google happenings on our SXSW website, and follow @googlesxsw on Twitter for last-minute updates and news from Austin. We can’t wait to hit the ground running (or biking), and we look forward to seeing you there!
