Student, Software Engineer, and Public Speaker in Seattle, Washington
Alex is a passionate open source Android developer. He loves to build apps with Firebase and contribute to numerous libraries. Notably, he's the co-author of FirebaseUI Android, Gradle Play Publisher, and Easy Permissions. Whenever something is broken or can be improved, he prefers to go ahead fix it while learning how the technology works rather than add to the maintainers’ backlog.
He also loves participating in alpha and beta tests to experience the bleeding edge of unreleased software and play with something new.
When he isn’t slowly losing his eyesight in front of a computer screen, he likes to go on hikes and camping or bikepacking trips out in nature to find fresh air and photo opportunities.
