I will describe my approach to quantization of Poisson manifolds using symplectic groupoids. By "quantization", I mean the construction of a noncommutative C*-algebra from a geometrical approximation. This approach unifies several previous examples. It combines the ideas of geometric quantization and groupoid convolution algebras. I will try to explain as many of these concepts as time allows.
