Recognized as a Google Developer Expert by Google

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.

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.

My Community Contributions

I have started working on Angular and JavaScript and for the Angular/ JavaScript community since August 2016, and since then

  • Organizing India’s Largest Angular Conference, ng-India. It’s third edition is happening on 29th Feb 2020 in Delhi. Find more details here
  • Have hosted 12 free full day Angular workshops in various Indian cities.
  • I have delivered 8 talks on Angular in various conferences. Find details here
  • I have written more than 50 blog posts on Angular. You can read them here
  • Authored best selling Angular book called Angular Essentials
  • Helped start-ups to embrace Angular as technology

Besides the above Angular contributions, I have also been making contributions to other technologies such as JavaScript, .NET, Azure, etc.

One of the most important aspects of the GDE program is mentoring others, and I have been mentoring many folks to be author, speaker, learn Angular to get a better job, etc, and I am very proud of that.  Below, sharing some photos from events I hosted in the past,

The process to become GDE

There are four steps in the GDE process:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. The fourth step is signing the NDA and getting accepted into the program.

Thank You

I was (perhaps am) always a Microsoft technologies boy. When I was just 25 years old, I received my 1st MVP award. Hence I have grown up with Microsoft technologies and is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional who was always involved with MS stack. However, when I entered to open source community and started advocating JavaScript and Angular some individuals were very welcoming and supported me since beginning.  This post would be incomplete without thanking them.

Thank you, these amazing people, from the Angular community,

Todd Motto, Geard Sans, Deborah Kurata, Joe Eames, Jesse Sanders, Brian Holt, John Papa, and Ben Lesh

I also would like to thank my constant support for a decade now (in all my winters and summer)

Julie Lerman, Glenn Block, Dan Wahlin, Steve Smith, Stephen Forte, Rey Bango, and Jeff Fritz

From the Angular Team,

Stephen Fluin, Vikram, Jules Kremer, and   Brad Green

And last but not least thank you  to Shiv Prasad Koirala  ,  Gaurav Mantri, Abhishek Kant, and my elder brother Mritunjay Kumar

Once again, a big thank you to everyone who comes to my meetups, workshops, and ng-India. This was never possible without your love and respect.

What Next?

I will continue teaching and helping you understand when to use the async pipe and JavaScript prototype diagram. For any training or speaking reach out to me at debugmode@outlook.com

See you in India’s Largest Angular Conference , ng-India  on 29 February 2020.

Thanks
