Not much has happened here on the blog as I have been busy doing some training and planning abroad.
As the saying goes, "pics or it didn't happen!". Here are the pics:
My hotel is in Nob Hill, but for work I go to SoMa. I didn't have a chance to go to Alcatraz, as the queue is something in the region of 3 months, but I managed to take a nice picture of it from Russian Hill. I don't have the classic Golden Gate picture yet, as it would require renting a car. On the other hand, the Bay Bridge is easily visible throughout the city, including Washington Street where I took the picture of Cable Car Museum. The Also, we had a nice evening get-together and went to see Giants vs. Reds baseball game at AT&T Park. Giants lost 1-3.
Update 2nd July: I got back home and here are some more pics:
There are the classic Golden Gate pics you'd expect from anybody who visited San Francisco.
During the last day I had time to do a little pilgrimage:
University of California, Berkeley is the place where BSD Unix was initially written from AT&T's Unix. Nowadays that code runs among other OS X and iOS and most TCP/IP implementations, like the one in your Windows. So, it is a mighty important place. Second pic is a composite from Apple HQ's Apple Store. Every programmer will get the "infinite loop" joke. Since Infinite Loop is a looping street, you can actually take as many loops you want (until security throws you out). Third one is a composite from Google's HQ. There are number of Google bikes for employees to use (not that there wasn't security present when I drove one, typically there are). The last one is from YouTube HQ. It was surprising that it still has an own place and is not embedded into Google Campus.
Btw. In general the pics are of somewhat poor quality. I took them with my iPhone 4S. I didn't want to take my DSLR to a business trip.
