Rowan’s focus at Google is ensuring that the web is not just a first-class experience for users, but that it’s also a natural and intuitive platform for developers. He focuses on e-commerce currently, which means looking at how the technical best practice can really be translated into viable business cases.
Previously he’s worked across several products, such as Android, Firebase, and Google Now – so he’s particularly interested in those intersections where users transfer from one device or interface to another in the course of completing a single task.

These use cases are out in the wild, so now it’s time to see how to bring them to Magento.
