Andromeda CTO Awarded as a Google Developer Expert in Angular
Martine has successfully met Google’s criteria to be considered an Expert

On Monday, October 18th, 2021, Andromeda Galactic founder and CTO Martine Dowden was recognized as a Google Developer Expert in Angular. Martine has been recognized as a Google Developer Expert in Web Technologies from December 11, 2018 to present day, and has now added Angular to her list. In order to be recognized as a Google Developer Expert, developers need to meet eligibility criteria such as being active in their subject area, being a technical expert in that subject area, and helping others learn the subject area through advice, mentorship, and speaking at conferences. In addition to those criteria, they must be referred to the program by either a Google employee or another Google Developer expert, before they go through a multi-stage evaluation process. Once all of these criteria have been met, and the applicant makes it through the process, they are recognized by Google as an expert in that subject area.

Focusing on web interfaces that are beautiful, functional, accessible, and usable, Martine approaches User Experience from both Art and Science, drawing from her degrees in Psychology and Visual Communications. She has worked as an artist, educator, and consultant since 2005. She stays active in the industry by writing articles, leading workshops, and attending and speaking at conferences and meetups worldwide. In 2015 she published a children’s book, Programming Languages ABC++, and in 2016 the Workbook Edition sold over 20,000 copies. She then went on to write Approachable Accessibility: Planning for Success which was released in June 2019 and Architecting CSS: The Programmer’s Guide to Effective Stylesheets in 2020.
