Meet our Judge

Ryan Matsumoto

I work as a Developer Advocate at Google, where I engage with the external developer community interested in learning about Google Cloud. I am a member of the Online Content & Experiments team - we create amazing online content (e.g. videos, blog posts, podcasts, codelabs etc.) to help developers learn about Google Cloud. I am also very involved in our Education Outreach efforts (including tech talks, workshops, and hackathons) to help student developers learn about cloud computing. You can follow me on Twitter @ryanmatsumoto2.

Outside of my work at Google, I am passionate about using statistics to analyze politics and elections. I am a Contributing Analyst at Inside Elections, which provides nonpartisan analysis of campaigns for Senate, House, governor, and presidency. My articles have been published at FiveThirtyEight, NBC News, and The Hill and my work has been cited in The Washington Post, The Atlantic, Roll Call, and New York Magazine. I have been interviewed on television by former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and have also appeared on Spectrum News in North Carolina. I also provide live elections analysis on Twitter @ryanmatsumoto1.
