About the Board

Peter Lee wearing a medium blue suit over a pale blue button-down shirt with a name tag affixed to his suit jacket pocket stands behind a light grey metal podium and adjacent microphone alongside Jeff Dean in a grey suit jacket over black trousers and a blue and white plaid shirt with a name tag affixed to the suit jacket pocket. There is a column of purple, silver and white balloons positioned behind them, next to a black curtain backdrop, and a purple sign on the front of the podium with text Paul G Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering and the UW block W logo in white
