Big news! After about four great years at Kaazing (a Mountain View-based start-up company focused on building a world-class enterprise WebSocket server), I'm super excited to report that I will be joining Google. I will start as a Program Manager in the Chrome Developer Relations team on Monday!
About two years ago, I had the opportunity to co-author the book Pro HTML5 Programming together with my former colleagues Brian Albers and Frank Salim. While writing the book, I turned some of the concepts covered in the book into what would become the first formal HTML5 training course in the world.
Demand for our training skyrocketed and before long I was teaching HTML5 training courses all over the world and we built a bigger training team to handle the demand. I flew about 450K miles over the last 4 years to places far and near and met great people along the way. All in all, it has been a great ride and I feel very privileged to have been able to do so.
