The 2017 Grace Hopper Celebration for Women in Computing wrapped up last week. The largest conference for women in tech with more than 18,000 attendees, it’s also one of our favorite moments of the year for Google. Eight hundred Googlers joined the thousands of other attendees at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, to demonstrate some of our products, meet aspiring Googlers, and connect with talented women (and men) from around the world. Here’s a quick glimpse at what we did at GHC ‘17:
Google’s booth at GHC, where attendees could talk with Googlers about our products and what it’s like to work at Google.
YouTube’s bright red “video experience tunnel” at the Google booth gave people the chance to learn more about YouTube and the YouTubers that power it.
Attendees were able to check out some of the latest content coming to Daydream and YouTube VR.

Attendees tested their drawing skills with our Quick, Draw! Game, which uses trained neural networks (and the world’s largest doodling data set) to try and guess what you’re drawing.
With AI Duets, attendees could play a duet with the computer—even if they aren’t piano players.

#GHC17 was a blast, and we’re proud to be there every year. Even if you weren’t able to make it, you can still learn more about our careers!
