About this event

Adam Dingle is a software architect and entrepreneur based in San Francisco Caliornia with a diverse experience in high tech. From 1994-96 he taught computer science at Charles University in Prague. From 2002 through 2006 he worked as a Senior Software Engineer at Google when it grew from roughly 550 employees to 9,000 and went public. At Google he worked on various products including Google Desktop, Firefox (and planning for Chrome), and served as Technical Lead for Google Toolbar. After Google he moved into his own startup work, founding Parking Hero as well as the open-source Yorba Foundation, and more recently Roundtown, an event aggregator. Tools developed at Yorba Foundation include Shotwell, a photo manager integrated into Ubuntu, and Geary, a popular email client for the Linux desktop.

Adam was educated at Princeton and UC Berkeley, and is a passionate believer in sharing knowledge. The effect of this can be seen in successes of his students, including the blossoming of a student project he led as professor at Charles University into NetBeans, a Java IDE which Sun purchased in 1999. NetBeans remains one of the most popular IDEs for Java.

During his fireside chat Adam will discuss the ups-and-downs of the startup world, and analyze why his last startup, Roundtown, never got off the ground.
