Why Google does ‘Beer & Demos’ every Friday

Craig Nevill-Manning was Google’s first engineering employee in New York City — a site where the tech giant now employs more than 4,000 people. He was one of the speakers at our Field Study earlier this month, and one of the topics he discussed was the role that a weekly gathering called “Beer & Demos” plays in the way the company develops ideas.

Nevill-Manning is a Director of Engineer at Google; he created what is now Google Shopping, and currently works on a project called Google Memory Integration.
