Adewale Oshineye

Developer Advocate at Google

I'm a Staff Developer Advocate and Tech Lead Manager in Google's London office.

That means I help developers and companies build the best possible integrations with the Google platform. It also means I help them tell better stories about their products by using our products. That involves spending a lot of time at the seams where our different products meet then using this knowledge to move the Google platform forwards by improving the quality of the developer experience: http://blog.oshineye.com/2011/05... we offer.

Over the last decade I've worked on trading systems for a variety of investment banks as well as on Google's advertising and mobile search systems. I'm also the co-author of “Apprenticeship Patterns”: a book that teaches you how to learn to be a great programmer.
