I am officially a Google Developer Expert in Angular and Web Technologies. I take this opportunity to thank the Angular global community and all my students who come to my training, meetups, and workshops. This recognition was never possible without you.
I am humbled to be one of the few professionals who are awarded as both Microsoft MOST Valuable Professional and Google Developer Expert.
Though I have been awarded the Microsoft MVP Award 10 times since 2010, this is my 1st GDE recognition.
As of the official website, GDE is a program to recognize individuals who are experts and help others. You can learn more about the program here
There are around 110 Google Developer Experts in Angular all across the world, and I am humbled to be part of the esteemed group. I understand this is a responsibility and would carry that with pride.

The process to become GDE
There are four steps in the GDE process:
- The first step is the Nomination. The Country community lead, a member of the Google Product Team, or an existing GDE can nominate you for the GDE.
- The second step is the Community Interview. If your nomination is accepted, the next round is Community Interview, which is taken by an existing GDE in your expertise area.
- The third step is the Product Interview. Once you pass Community Interview, the third step is Product Interview, which is taken by a member of the product team.
- The fourth step is signing the NDA and getting accepted into the program.
