I lead the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google.
We want people to have the best experience possible on the web without having to install a native app or produce content in a walled garden.
Our team tries to make it easier for developers to build on the web by supporting every Chrome release, creating great content to support developers on web.dev, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.

Building an NPM downloads dashboard with Google Sheets
I'm in the lucky position that our team is very productive and we've built a lot of amazing tools on NPM that developers for the most part love to use. The manager in me likes to quickly get a picture of how the web is doing, and how the work that our team does is going, so I end up building a lot of dashboards. One area that was a frustration was that I would have to go through each of our teams NPM modules by hand and see how they are doing. Read More

Web Developers. Want help? I want to help. Book a meeting with me.
After the Chrome Dev Summit, I had the chance to take some time off and spend it with my family, and during the downtime I got to think about all that has happened over the last year. I'm incredibly proud of my team and how they responded to the crisis that hit the world this year - we built tools like web.dev/covid to give developers advice on how to keep sites up and running, set up a forum for public services support during the lock-downs; ran web.

Creating a quick launcher for Android using the web
The web is a powerful thing, with the right capabilities you can create tools and services that can be deployed without a central authority and can also deeply integrate with the peoples devices. I love being able to tinker and scratch an itch quickly. The itch in question was that I'm a heavy user of .new domains and I wanted a quick way to have access to them on my Android home screen so that I can start a task without having to find the app, go through its menus and then create the "new" thing.

Bookmarklet to download all images on a page with the File System API
My daughter is attending nursery school and every day they post photos of the baby to a special portal so we can see what she has been doing. The web site, is, err, well... functional. However they block the ability to download the photos in their UI, I've no clue why, but it's super frustrating. I love Bookmarklet because they let me quickly augment a site without having to build a full extension, and this is no exception. Read More
Simulating Apache mod_include for Vercel
I run a static site, it's built with Hugo and hosted on the edge with Vercel. Sometimes, I just want to include a small piece of server-side logic (Copyright notice anyone?) without having to spin up a complex node server or api endpoints. Sometimes I want to be able to drop a small piece of dynamic content in one single page on my static site. That's what I loved about Apache mod_include. Read More
