Hi everyone, I’d like to give a short introduction as I join Medium, writing mostly in relation to Google Cloud Platform.
I started at Google, in Developer Relations, in October 2019, with a focus on the Pub/Sub client libraries under Node.js. My focus has expanded over time to include the general Node.js ecosystem within GCP Developer Relations, as well as our GitHub automation tooling.
In a more general sense, I’ve been in the industry for quite a while, working across many different languages and libraries, such as C++, C#, Java, Kotlin, and even a few variants of assembly language. I’m especially interested in game development, but that’s a very occasional hobby. My time with Node.js and TypeScript started somewhere around 2016, working with the Predix platform at GE Aviation.
Outside of work, I have many hobbies! Drawing art, making music, sometimes writing fiction. In more normal times, I also love to hike in the mountains, and I’ve taken a few blissful flights on a hang glider. (That’s a hobby I’d love to be more involved with, but the opportunity hasn’t been available lately.) You might also guess, from my avatar, that I’m a fan of Final Fantasy XIV.
In the coming months, I’m hoping to present you all with some blog posts about Pub/Sub in Google Cloud Platform. I’m looking forward to it!
