Kevin Gibbs

Kevin Gibbs is the founder and tech lead of Google App Engine. He founded the initial App Engine team at Google, and he has been the technical lead and manager of the project since its inception.

App Engine was launched to the public in April, 2008. Previously, he worked in the Infrastructure group at Google, as part of the team that built the cluster management system that now runs Google’s datacenters.

He is also the creator of Google Suggest, which was the first system to provide interactive search suggestions as you type. He launched Suggest as a 20% time project in 2004.

Suggest, along with Gmail and Google Maps, was one of the examples used in the article that coined the term AJAX in 2005.

Google Suggest now runs on the homepage, and search suggestions have become part of the standard experience on all major search websites.
