about

🙌 I’m Geoff, a principal developer advocate. A software engineer and devops engineer with a “Jack-of-All-Trades” background. People often ask what the heck is a Developer Advocate. Here’s one way to explain it…

“A software developer, a marketer, a branding manager, an integrations manager, a business development partner, a domain expert, a public speaker, an event manager, and a technical writer walk into a bar. He orders a glass of scotch. After all, it’s been a long day of jet-setting and hand-holding as a developer advocate.”

I deeply care about helping developers be successful with platforms or technology products that I deeply care about. As a Developer Advocate my role is to act as a bridge between organizational structures and the developer community.

On an average day ™ you’ll find me shipping features along side the engineering team, crafting code examples, curating communities, doctoring documentation, and acting as an internal advocate and feedback-getter.
