What’s the craziest thing that happened to you that involves technology?
I was lucky that lot of things has happen during my 20+ years of experience but the two that I would like to emphasize are: - One man on one island create a dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity with an elegant syntax that is natural to read and easy to write. Ruby is ranked among the top 10 on most of the indices that measure the growth and popularity of programming languages worldwide (such as the TIOBE index). Much of the growth is attributed to the popularity of software written in Ruby, particularly the Ruby on Rails web framework. - 'The Ugly Duckling' is a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen (1805 – 1875). The story tells of a homely little bird born in a barnyard who suffers abuse from the others around him until, much to his delight (and to the surprise of others), he matures into a beautiful swan, the most beautiful bird of all. The story of JavaScript / NodeJS is the same as this fairy tale.
How do you see next 5 years in tech?
In the years to come the main thing will be avalanche of sensor data, new ways to connect them in information and new business based on new information flow. In the same time, the switch of work force will also happen. There will be lot of developers transition from other industries performing a work that nowadays is consider complex, where it will be mostly boilerplate in a couple of years. Internet of Things will finally become a everyday thing based on only one thing - the data.
What would you tell to your younger self?
Hype is usually a big boys payed marketing. The only sure thing is the change.
