Tim Messerschmidt

👨‍💻 Biography

Hello there! My name is Tim, and for the past ten years, I've been advocating for, serving, and enabling developers across several Developer Relations teams.

In my current role, I oversee Community Programs, Operations, and Regions for Google's Developer Relations Ecosystem team in Europe, Israel, and Russia. My favorite technologies are Flutter and anything related to home automation. Furthermore, I'm passionate about identity and security technology -- this is why I authored a book for O'Reilly covering best practices for web developers.

Before joining Google in 2016, I ran PayPal's Developer and Startup Relations team in EMEA and APAC. The Developer Relations Ecosystem team prides itself in being a truly global organization that ensures developers' voices are heard and represented -- no matter their background, career stage, or geographic location.

🎤 Public Speaking

🤖 What I currently play with

As stated in my bio above, I'm a massive fan of anything connected to home automation. I love using Docker, Kubernetes, and Home Assistant to make my life easier and automate processes.
