Van Riper

As an individual contributor, the common thread running through my entire career has been working with the latest technologies to deliver the best user experiences possible. Since 2003, my volunteer work as a community builder among developers has evolved into my main area of interest. Which is why I accepted my first full-time developer relations position at Google in December of 2010 working with Google Developer Groups. As of January 2015, I applied my meta-community manager expertise towards building communities of mindful living at every Google office in the world. As of October 2018, I have returned to developer community work with the Go developer community as a member of the Open Source Program Development team at Google.
