Hello everyone,

I am Surma. I am an open web platform advocate and engineer at Google. For better or worse, I am half of the HTTP 203 podcast and used to do a YouTube show called Supercharged. I am part of the core team behind Squoosh, creator of Comlink and also brought you Tinder for Bananas. I also gave a talk at last year’s Chrome Dev Summit that went horribly wrong.

Ask me anything on the following topics: Anything. It’s why it’s called an “Ask Me Anything” right? But if you need some ideas to get started:

  • Web Performance
  • App development
  • Architecture
  • Houdini
  • WebAssembly
  • Standards
  • Mechanical keyboards
  • Programming languages
  • Sitting next to Jake all day

Thank you for all your questions! I think I managed to reply to everyone, but if you have more questions, please feel free to reach out to me on Twitter!
