Bob Lee is a lot of Twubble
Bob Lee is a Software Engineer at Google, currently leading up the charge on the core Android APIs. He is also one of the founders of the Google Guice project, and was the interviewee on the very first Google Developer Podcast on the topic.
He also just created a little fun application called Twubble that helps you find potential friends and followers on Twitter. The Twitterati are all over this application, and Biz Stone of Twitter even attributed it as one of a handful of reasons that have driven the rise in followers recently.
This is Bob's first GWT application, so I wanted to sit down and talk to him about why he built the application, his experience with GWT, how he integrated with Twitter, and any other nuggets of information that I could get out of him.
Please, listen in to our conversation, and let us know if you have any questions in the comments:
