    This post is by Scott Knaster of Google Developer Relations. Scott works on technical docs at Google and is editor of this very blog. A Silicon Valley veteran, Scott enjoys listening to music, spending time with his family, and writing about himself in the third person.

    the YouTube platform for the first time
