How can we extend everyone's technological reach, no matter where they're starting from? How can IT become a platform that lets everyone stand taller? I'll talk about the critical role APIs play in creating more digital workforces. As organizations spend billions on various digital transformation efforts, they need to empower more of their people, not just developers and IT staff, to understand and interact with their data and technologies through APIs. The key is providing tools to people that make APIs more accessible to more people. APIs enable all sorts of combinations and linkages between data and technologies, and giving people streamlined access to APIs enables them to combine and extend their own expertise in innovative ways. Illustrative examples from working in IoT and APIs include academic research projects in many disciplines and business implementations across industries.

Cares deeply about upskilling the global workforce, pushing back against the negative narrative that follows automation and emerging technologies (Machine Learning, AI, etc).
