The first 5 years of your career are crucial to set you on the right path towards success. Whether you wish to be a senior programmer or a freelancer, you will have to evaluate the job market trends versus your capabilities. In a nutshell, what can you offer your future employers and customers?

To answer this question, we have invited Danny Mak, Head of Partner Engineering at Google Cloud, to Tech 101 next Wednesday (8 Dec 2021, 7:30 pm (GMT+8)). He will speak about his own experience how he boosted his professional growth by:

  • transitioning from a software engineer to a sales engineer role with MS Azure,
  • picking seemingly irrelevant skills at Apple, and
  • seizing various project opportunities at Amazon Web Services to grow his portfolio.

About the Speaker: 

Danny Mak is Head of Partner Engineering at Google Cloud SEA. Danny leads a team focusing primarily on technically enabling partners, helping them define regional Go-to-Market strategies through the use of Google Cloud in the partner ecosystem. 

Before making his mid-career switch to Google, Danny was the APAC GSI Solution Architect Lead for AWS where he specialized in machine learning. Prior to his move to Singapore, Danny led the business channel team at Apple Hong Kong and was the first member of the Azure launch team at Microsoft Hong Kong. 

When’s he not too busy convincing businesses of the wonders of Google Cloud, Danny can usually be found mentoring students from his alma mater and/or playing with his 2 young kids and getting them ready for the NBA and EPL.
