Francesc Campoy Flores

I focus on Go for Google Cloud Platform. Since joining the Go team in 2014, I've written several didactic resources and traveled the world attending conferences, organizing live courses and meeting fellow Go-phers. I joined Google in 2011 as a backend software engineer working mostly in C++ and Python, but it was with Go and Cloud Platform that I rediscovered how fun programming can be.


Greg Wilson

I lead the Google Cloud Platform Developer Advocacy team and have over 25 years of software development experience spanning multiple platforms, including cloud, mobile, web, gaming and various large-scale systems.


Kathy Kam

I am a technical program manager for the Google Cloud Platform team. I have extensive experience in API design and teach API design within Google. I am experienced with both web and client technologies. I have a passion for startup and have coached many startup weekends.


Ray Tsang

I have extensive hands-on cross-industry enterprise systems integration delivery and management experiences. During my time at Accenture, I managed full-stack application development, DevOps and ITOps. I specialized in middleware, big data and PaaS products during my time at Red Hat while contributing to open-source projects, such as Infinispan.


Todd Prives

I oversee the media and entertainment rendering roadmap for Google Cloud Platform. I joined Google via the acquisition of Zync Render, a turnkey cloud rendering solution, where I led product and business strategy. Prior to Zync I held numerous product development and technology roles in computer graphics at GenArts, Inc.
