Andy Piper & Troy Howard, Now Twitter is up to Something!

Twitter is up to something. I’m betting it’s something good.

In the last 2 weeks I’ve found out two fellow coders are rolling into the Twitter family. These two people are top tier talent, so I’m just assuming Twitter had their act together when they went after these two new recruits. So who are these two individuals? Andy Piper and Troy Howard, two people everybody keeps track of. Wait, you do keep track of these guys right? Hmmm, if you don’t it might be high time you need to get in gear and follow them! Here are their deets, so you’re in the loop.

Andy Piper @andypiper, heading over to become Developer Advocate in London. Andy has been a great advocate over at Cloud Foundry. I only assume, as many who have used the Cloud Foundry Platform, he’ll continue to be an advocate for it. I’m super excited to see the efforts Andy leads forward with in this new role with Twitter. I’ll be keeping an eye out and hopefully this year landing in London to visit for a few lines of code and a brew or two.

Troy Howard @thoward37 is heading over to become the Technical Documentation Super Genius (my label) to which he humbly refers to as Documentarian. He’s helped lead projects like Node PDX Conf (which he and I stumbled ourselves into 2+ years ago) and he’s since knocked out work with organizing Write the Docs,

Hujs (check out Glenn Block’s write up) and others! Besides being a mad awesome conference organizer he’s all over the Portland tech community, code space & devops world.

For other trend setters and coders that get shit done and make waves, check out my Awesome Coders category. I’ve introduced more than a few top tier amazing people over the years that I’m totally stoked to have worked along side, hacked with, coded with or otherwise been involved with in the software & hardware industry!
