Jerome Poudevigne, Startup Architect, Google Cloud for Startups
Jerome Poudevigne is a Startup Architect at Google Cloud, and helps startups take off on the Google Cloud platform. Originally from France, Jerome got his first computer at the age of 13, when CPUs were 8 bits and 16K of memory was a luxury, and immediately started hacking around, putting together math applications, video games and copy protection schemes. He started as a developer for Airbus, then accidentally moved to the Silicon Valley, got bitten by the startup bug, created 3 companies, sold 2 of them and spectacularly failed another. He has lost track of how many operating systems and programming languages he has used (he just knows COBOL is one of them), but still enjoy passionately debating about the merits of the actor model in embedded software and generally anything IT related.
