What’s the craziest thing that happened to you that involves technology?
What is crazy is that my family and friends don't know anything about Apache Cassandra and my job, but when I told them 'do you know Netflix, Apple, Uber or Waze? They are all using the technology I'm working on', they are pretty amazed!
How do you see next 5 years in tech?
In less than 5 years, there will probably be some market consolidation around the NoSQL database landscape, a few big players will emerge (if not already done) and small players will die. There will be also a shift and new interest into cloud and container orchestration technologies. On the front-end side, the question is still open because the Javascript landscape is evolving too fast, frameworks and stacks are changing every 6 months, still we can foresee the 2 majors technologies which are Angular and React.
What would you tell to your younger self?
If I had my knowledge of today in my early days, I would invest sooner into the technology and forget about all the project management crap. A pure tech career with a lot of expertise is much more rewarding than fighting against the crowd to become yet-another-middle-management manager
