About Me

I'm Brian Duff, a Scot 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 living and working in the California Bay Area. I've worked, written, and presented about technology since the 90s, but my journey with computers started in the 80s while playing Manic Miner and hacking BASIC on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

Currently, I'm a Principal Engineer at Google. Before Google, I worked on Engineering Effectiveness at Twitter, and then before that, led Mobile Developer Experience at Facebook. This is my second "tour" at Google - the first time around, I led projects and teams on a large number of things for many years, including Nearby, Cloud SQL, Bazel, and Google+. My first job out of university was at Oracle, where I built IDE frameworks for a living.
