My name is Sam Stagg and I work for Pusher as VP of Engineering. My responsibilities are to grow the engineering team, and to coach project teams and individuals to do the best work of their careers in a fast-paced and highly technical environment. My background is in software engineering in the video games and data industries.
Pusher provides hosted building blocks to help productive app developers move faster and write less code. Our core product enables developers to easily create interactive features for their applications, such as in-app notifications, activity streams, real-time dashboards, live trackers and more.
We just released Pusher Chatkit in public beta. It is a specialised Chat API solution that makes it easy for developers to add cloud-hosted messaging services to their mobile and web apps.
My AMA will start at 1PM EDT today. Ask me anything from scaling engineering teams to building real-time messaging applications!
