Featured by Google
Today was one of the proudest moments of my career.

We started working with Google as a partner on their new UI framework, Jetpack Compose, way back at the end of last year. Today, Compose went to 1.0, and my team was featured all over the place - from reasons why you should adopt to a full case study on how we migrated our design system to this new model.

I'm extremely proud of my team and their contributions to the wider Android community - trailblazing the way and sharing their learnings with the world. Congrats to everyone involved!

Participated in a round table discussion
Alongside Sam Edwards and as guests of Mobile Notts, I discussed this year's Google I/O - the announcements, what they mean for Android and where Google is heading.

We were joined by Mitch Tabian, Yacine Rezgui and others in what turned out to be a super fun and insightful session.

Featured at Google IO
The culmination of many months of work, my company was featured in the Google I/O Developer Keynote as early adopters of Jetpack Compose, having worked closely with Google to give feedback and help shape their next-generation UI framework.

This was easily one of the proudest moments of my professional life, and I'm grateful to lead such an incredible team of engineers.
