While developers are considered to be highly valuable by our society, the experiences of developers themselves are rarely talked about. What drives a developer to do what they do? What are their dreams, their aspirations? And what difference are they hoping to make in the world through coding? Our founder Sunil Sandhu sheds light on his own experience as a developer, from starting out with the simple desire to share his love for Pokémon to building highly performant websites and now working as the Head of Content for Bit. In the process, he sheds light on what a healthy and thriving engineering culture should look like.
In other news, we look at the exodus of tech workers in Russia, Facebook’s smear campaign against TikTok, and how hackers are exploiting Blockchain.
All this and more, on this week’s edition of Last Week in Plain English.
