Building for the builders
In their roles shaping the technology that the world increasingly runs on, software developers have had an outsized impact on our economy. Yet even major tech companies haven’t always kept pace with developers’ needs. Join Romain Huet as he discusses what’s truly critical for providing a great developer experience, including SDKs, personalized API reference documentation, non-breaking API changes, and how better tools can help increase the leverage of developers around the world.
Romain leads global developer relations at Stripe. He joined Stripe from Twitter, where he was a Senior Developer Advocate and the first member of Twitter’s developer relations team outside the US. In 2014, Romain helped launch Fabric, Twitter's mobile development platform, and Digits, a way for people to securely sign in to apps with their phone number rather than a password. Romain's worldwide developer tour has led him to meet thousands of developers at events and conferences in dozens of cities across the US, Europe and Asia.
Prior to Twitter, Romain was co-founder and CTO Jolicloud, whose free operating system was designed to work on low cost computers and connect them to the cloud. Joli OS was the first operating system based on Linux, Chromium, HTML5 and Open Web technologies, paving the way towards a new generation of browser-based platforms like Chrome OS.
Romain has an M.S. in Computer Science from Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Rennes, France.
