Ethan has followed the rise of developer focused APIs saying, “The change in developer platform has been massive. The way developers build products today is totally different than what it used to look like in the past. That’s hitting both startup companies like Twilio, and enterprises.” “At the heart of it is this desire for on-demand computing resources when people want them in the cloud.”
