Austin Parker started out at a young age with computers, writing programs in BASIC and hanging out on bulletin boards. Prior to his tech career, he held many other jobs – as a short order cook, waiting tables, and taking tickets at a theater. When he stepped into this industry, he started out in test automation, followed by getting involved in open source communities, which is how he got into Developer Relations. What he likes about this arena is that DevRel is taking your companies story of a product, and making it harmonize with what everyone else is singing in the market. He has a young family, which occupies most of his time these days. But he likes to do photography, tinkering with electronics, and building model aircraft. Back in the day, he experienced the glory days of Radio Shack where you could grab electronic components on a whim.
Austin Parker has been at his current company for 4 years, right after stealth mode ended. He has helped enable the company to support developers through their innovative tech stack, built by industry experts.
This is Austin’s creation story of Lightstep.
