In many ways, Don Dodge is like a bridge. He’s a developer advocate at Google, providing a link between the tech giant and its community of developers working on Google platforms. Before that, Dodge used to be a startup evangelist at Microsoft.
All told, he’s spent 25 years in the software industry. Besides Microsoft and Google, he worked at five different startups, including Napster. One of his early projects was at Digital Equipment Corporation, one of the oldest American computer companies (founded in 1957).
Dodge was kind enough to stop by our SXSW Startup Celebration sponsored by CEA and .CO. He gave us some insight into one of tech’s most hyped companies, including how Google has evolved during his tenure. Here’s the video.
