Livecast Hosts and Commentators
Here’s the lineup of our Google I/O livecast hosts and our key Android team members ready to share their opinions about what comes out of Google I/O this year:
Dru started writing code for Apple products at the age of 11 when he received an Apple ][. Note, not a plus, not an e… just a ][. As computers and the internet were only a passing fad (said the sales guy at CompUSA) he went off to study Theatrical and Mass Media production. As a result, he self-taught himself through Basic, Pascal, Object Pascal, C, C++, Objective-C, and then Swift. Many years ago he discovered writing code paid more than waiting tables.
Nishant is primarily an Android Engineer, but also has experience writing firmware code for custom wearable hardware, building mobile SDKs for enabling DSP on Android and constantly contributing to the open source ecosystem, giving talks, writing blog posts, co-authoring books, etc. He is listed inventor on two patents for using mobile tech in cross device mobile ad re-targeting domain using unique audio beacon tech.

Victoria is an Android Engineer and technical author. The conferences she has spoken at have been an enjoyable way to connect with the technical community and exchange information with others. She was drawn to programming because of its potential to help people in a meaningful way. In her spare time, Victoria enjoys dancing and curling up with a good book.
Fuad provides mobile strategy, architecture & development for the Health & Fitness markets. He is the author of The Kotlin Book: an introduction to Android development for iOS Developers, and author and technical editor on other Kotlin / Android books and articles from raywenderlich.com. If you’ve ever been to an airport, you’ve likely seen his work – the flight arrival and departure screens are a Flash 7 interface he wrote towards the beginning of the millennium. Over the years he’s taught at many colleges, covering a huge variety of subjects from Anatomy & Physiology to Mobile Design & Development. He has also been the official photographer for a number of tech conferences.
I am an Android Developer at KeepTruckin. I am passionate about creating good mobile experiences and sharing my learnings with others. When I am not playing around with Android or AOSP, you can find me binge-watching TV shows or sketching anime characters.
