My name is Andrew Gerrand. I'm a software engineer based in Australia with more than 25 years of industry experience. I have worked at Google Australia since early 2010.
I spent nearly seven years building The Go Programming Language at Google. While I did a lot of programming (at the time of writing I am the 6th most prolific committer to the Go core), a large part of my role was building a community around the language and managing the open source project.
From mid-2016 to the end of 2017 I worked on Upspin, an experimental distributed file system for storing and sharing everything.
