  • This question does not appear to be about software development within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

One thing I do know is that they publicly release their style guides – Casebash Sep 15 '10 at 1:41
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the practices of a single company. This is not something that the general programming community can be expected to know. – Bart van Ingen Schenau Dec 3 '13 at 10:34

I was searching a couple of weeks ago for some info about google development methodologies and found the following which I posted on my blog

  • Steve Y - Good Agile vs Bad Agile
  • A summary of google methodologies from Steve Y's post
  • Google Product Development/Management Process

I can't post more than one link at the moment, though, (stackexchange spam prevention apparently), so follow the link to my blog or google the above strings.
