Today we welcome Andrew Mager (@mager) to the SmartThings Community team. You’ll see him around these forums as well as at events as he has joined SmartThings a a Developer Evangelist.
I am very excited to have Mager as the first member of the growing team of people focused on growing the community and enabling and facilitating the creation of new SmartApps and device types. I’m very excited to work with Mager as his insights, suggestions, and connections are already proving valuable.
Mager lives in San Francisco, enjoys good, music, good, food, and good beer. In other words he will be a terrible fit at SmartThings
In his own words:
I’m very excited to join the SmartThings family. For the past three years I’ve been doing a similar job at Spotify, and before that I was at a small startup called SimpleGeo. I love humanizing APIs and platforms, especially at meetups, hackathons, and conferences.
I’ve been a fan of home automation since my dad was controlling the lights on our Christmas tree with the IBM Home Director in the late 90s.
When I’m not on the computer, I’m probably in the kitchen cooking or outside with my dog Sam. Music is also a big part of my life; I play trumpet (yes, I was in the marching band) and guitar and love curating playlists.
You can best connect online with me on Twitter and Instagram. Can’t wait to meet all of you!
Please join me in welcoming Mager to SmartThings!
