Arpit's story took us from Tamagotchis to Robotics, and then to discovering that Software development is not just for failed hardware engineers. Arpit took us on a wild ride, made of entrepreneurship, learning on the job, hypergrowth, and finding the product-market-fit (or not). We talked about his transformation from a software engineer to a coding CTO and then to an organization builder. We spoke about his last endeavor AppSmith, and finally about algorithms to live by.Here are the links from the show:https://twitter.com/mohanarpithttps://www.appsmith.com/https://www.linkedin.com/in/arpitmohan/https://arpitmohan.com/Algorithms to Live By: https://amzn.to/37S0TaKCode: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software: https://amzn.to/3OCVXavarpit@appsmith.comme@arpitmohan.comCreditsCover Heliotrope by Blue Dot Sessions is licensed CC BY-NC-ND 4.0.Your host is Timothée (Tim) Bourguignon, more about him at timbourguignon.fr.Gift the podcast a rating on one of the significant platforms https://devjourney.info/subscribeSupport the show
Maia's story started with a ZX-81 in the 80s, and from there on, she was hooked. We talked about how she followed her curiosity and studied engineering while not wanting to become an engineer. Maia spoke about how she started working on embedded systems while still not wanting to become an engineer. She spoke of how she went back to school and studied art because she still didn't want to be an engineer... and mixed software engineering and art. We spoke about discovering phones and Android and having the opportunity to impact people's life fast. And finally, we talked about her last job at Luno, the GDE program, and communities.And to get the records straight, I mentioned the show Dark Mirror Bandersnatch and claimed Netflix recreated a ZX-81 game for it. I stand corrected! It was a ZX-Spectrum (ZX-82), which was in color compared to the ZX-81, which was still Black&White. Also, the game hidden into Bandersnatch isn't a fake Bandersnatch itself but a game called Nosedive.

Nicolas started tweaking HTML pages on PHP-BB forums when he was in high school, but even though he liked coding, that didn't propel him toward a dev career... yet. He then studied physics and chemistry and joined a business school while still coding on the side. His interests were very eclectic, so he freelanced on web projects. After an exciting experience building a real-life connected wine farming simulator game, he discovered the Software Crafters community. He joined a company attracting many like-minded people: Octo in Paris. He went through a learning pressure cooker there until he left for Canada two years later. He now works for Centered, an app to enter FlowState faster.Here are the links from the show:https://www.twitter.com/nicoespeonhttps://understandlegacycode.comhttps://www.softwarecrafters.orgCreditsCover Heliotrope by Blue Dot Sessions is licensed CC BY-NC-ND 4.0.Your host is Timothée (Tim) Bourguignon, more about him at timbourguignon.fr.Gift the podcast a rating on one of the significant platforms https://devjourney.info/subscribeSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/timbourguignon)

Rich's computer story started early in his childhood with an Amstrad computer. But it took him 30 years, 2 or 3 different careers in screenwriting, scaffolding, building glasses, and moving from the UK to Sweden to discover programming (again).
