What’s the craziest thing that happened to you that involves technology?
For the last 3 years not being able to book a British Airways flight in Firefox because the Continue button on the last page of their booking process doesn't work.
How do you see next 5 years in tech?
More and more moving pieces, and ever-increasing complexity. To survive developers will need to understand much more about their infrastructure - cloud platforms, virtualisation, containers, databases, messaging etc. Devops will no longer be a choice, but a necessity.
What would you tell to your younger self?
Learn about the non-glamorous things that no one else wants to think about - they are usually the most practical. Really understand your day-to-day tools. Everything you learn will be useful at some point, and is cumulative. Don't chase shiny tech - most of it is a distraction.
