Sam Thorogood

Engineer at Google Australia since 2009. I enjoy board games, travel, emoji, design discussions and long walks on the beach. My partner Dr Nicky Ringland is also at Google, and in the past, founded Grok Learning. Together, we've created at least one small human.

I'm in the Developer Relations team at Google. I've helped build Santa Tracker and various documentation sites. Previously, I've worked on Chrome, Drive, App Engine, Google Wave, and Google Maps. I'd consider myself a generalist. I've worked on—and spoken at—events like Chrome Dev Summit, web.dev LIVE, and Google I/O.

Aeons ago, I studied CS at the University of Sydney. My 1st class Honours thesis discussed files and their relationships.
