About this Episode

At the Cloud Foundry Summit, the story is about developers as the heroes. They're the ones who make the platforms. They are akin to the engineers who played such a pivotal role in designing the railroads, or in modern times made the smartphone possible. This means a more important role for developer advocates who, at Google, are spending a lot more time with customers. These subject matter experts are helping developers build out their platforms. They are gathering data to develop feedback loops that flow back into open source communities for ongoing development.

On today's episode of The New Stack Makers, TNS Founder Alex Williams sat down with Google Program Manager of Developer Relations Kim Bannerman to discuss her role at Google, and how working in the cloud continues to shape the way today's organizations are doing business.
