…WE’RE DOING IT LIVE!!!

…WE’RE DOING IT LIVE!!!

Well I got to do my first large publication interview…and it was live! Although the idea of “live” made me nervous for my first video gig, I had a lot of great things to say about Livio and the Michigan tech boom, including the new Freemium model that Livio is doing to help get smaller app companies into the automotive market. Not to mention the shout out to Big Ten schools!!

After finishing the interview the best advice I can give would be to remember there is a reason they are interviewing you. You’re the smartest person in the room on the subject you’re about to talk about, so be confident.

Check out the link to a video and brief article about Livio!

I’m speaking at the IMDA conference during CES!

Whoaa!!! Someone wants to listen to me babble!?! BOOM!! haha

But I’ve actually got some good stuff to talk about that’s going to be important to help get more consumers using apps in their car! I will be discussing how the infotainment industry needs to come up with some standards for Smartphone Apps in head-units.  Come check out my talk or stop me in the hall if you want to chat! I’ll also be at the Livio Booth for most of CES which is booth 2806 North Hall (Right inside the N2 doors).

Launch Day!

Hello everyone!

My name is Joey Grover. I am the Mobile Technology Lead at Livio where I handle the mobile technology road map and write the code needed for the Android platform. Livio is a start-up out of Ferndale, MI that has launched its flagship technology, Livio Connect, that connects mobile apps with automotive head-units.

I graduated from Michigan State University with a B.S. in Computer Engineering with a concentration in Biomedical Engineering. I started my career working for IBM as an Associate Programming specialist. The spare time I had from working gave me the chance to teach myself how to program for the Android platform. After about a year working for “Big Blue” I felt that my talents and ambition had outgrown my position and I needed a change. I found out about Livio through the MSU career center and saw they were in need of an Android developer. I was hired for the position and haven’t slowed down since. The start up atmosphere really plays well with my drive; I am constantly challenged and never run out of problems to solve.

The time to start my blog has been long overdue, so it’s starting today! I plan to post about my career, tricks in software engineering with interesting code examples, and all things technology.  Oh, and if I throw in one or one hundred links to memes, comics, or cat pictures don’t be alarmed…because it will happen, and you’re welcome.

I hope you all enjoy the blog!!!
