Paul Kinlan [code] is a simple service that I created to summarize the Hacker News posts and the sentiment of the comments.

I built this tool because as part of a DevRel team it's important to understand how the people that we work with (developers) feel about our work and the platform as a whole. It can take a lot of time to go through each of the comments to understand what the issues are, so I built this tool to help me find the most important comments.

This tool isn't a replacement for spending time in the ecosystem and understanding needs, but helps to identify critical challenges and how teams might address them.

The UI is a simple Hugo static CMS. The Generative AI is managed by Breadboard (a project that I work on) and Anthropic's Claude using the Breadboard "Claude Kit".

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, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.

I love to learn about what you are building, and how I can help with Chrome or Web development in general, so if you want to chat with me directly, please feel free to book a consultation.
