About Me

I’m Alex Russell, a software engineer at Google working on Chrome, Blink and the broader web platform via standards. I help represent Google at TC39, the committee standardizing ECMAScript/JavaScript. As of Fall ’14 I continue to participate through the end of my 2-year elected term on the W3C’s Technical Architecture Group where I’m working with a group of like-minded reformers to improve the state of layering and API design for the web.

Previously, I was Director of R&D at SitePen and built rich UIs for JotSpot and Informatica where I helped build Dojo.

You can usually get ahold of me in the Chromium or Blink IRC channels where my nick is slightlyoff. If it’s important, you can email me: slightlyoff at chromium.org.
