Vic Gundotra
Vic Gundrotra, the man behind many prominent Google features like Google+ as well as their developer focused event which is coming up to its 7th year – Google I/O, is leaving Google.

Vic has written a heart wrenching post on Google+ titled ‘And Then’ outlining why he’s leaving Google, but he has yet to advise where he will be going next.


Larry Page, also posted on Google+ acknowledging the effect that Vic has had during his time at Google. From his work on the mobile app eco-system, as well as the profound effect he has had on their developer community with the introduction of Google I/O. And of course, his efforts with Google+ :

While he had a hand in a number of products at Google, it was with Google+ that Vic spent the last few years at Google developing, building and pushing the platform. Google has advised re/code that Vic will now hand the reigns over to a Google+ VP of Engineering – David Besbris.

We’ll obviously find out where Vic is going to find his next ‘and then’ soon enough, until then we wish him well.

Lol oh I see because you don’t like something, it should be taken away from others that enjoy it. Super logic.

I wanted to hear Vic say just one more time at Google I/O – “.. and that’s a plus!”.
