"BeBop was in stealth mode when you joined the Google cloud group and Google acquired the startup. Can you now say what BeBop aims to do and how it plays into Google’s ambitions?

Our hand was kind of forced by the acquisition. I hadn’t planned to talk about BeBop for a while. It’s a pretty ambitious project. But basically, we’re developing ways of quickly building very rich enterprise applications, which is what you want to do in the cloud. We’ve invested very heavily in design—human-centered design, how humans look at this. Eventually, we were able to build a real center for design excellence at BeBop, which I found really exciting. You have to recognize how important it is—and how powerful it is—to a have a good user experience."
