Sarah Thiam

Cloud Advocacy Program Manager, Asia Pacific


Sarah is a DevRel program manager from Singapore, as part of an amazing team of Cloud Advocates at Microsoft.

Her DevRel activities are focused on the ultra-diverse Asia Pacific region, where she’s continuously learning about equal representation and inclusiveness across gender, race and sexuality.

Sarah’s prior 4 years’ experience in marketing strategy and ops is a lens she brings to DevRel, to solve ‘programmatic’ VS ‘authentic’.
